Just say no

There has been an big increase in the number of calls my clients are getting from crooks trying to help them with their computer problems. Often these miscreants claim to be from Microsoft, or Windows, or an authorized Microsoft support person. They claim to have noticed a problem with your computer that they've been asked to help you with. So, you should allow them remote access to your computer.

Just say no. Hangup. Do not encourage them, you'll just get follow up calls. If you talk to them more than 15 seconds, they'll mark you as a potential mark and will keep calling.

Never trust unsolicited email offers or phone offers. Only buy what you have gone and searched for. If some email or phone offer occurs, call the company if you want or search the Internet yourself for similar products. Never buy from an unsolicited email or phone call.
