Got a call from tech support?

Did you get a call from tech support? From Microsoft who found a virus on your computer? From Spectrum who saw a problem with activity on your internet? From Google who found an issue with your account.

You didn’t.

It’s a scam. Microsoft, Google, the IRS won’t call you. It’s scammers who call you to talk you into allowing them to help ‘fix’ your computer. They may charge you for doing nothing or they may be installing a virus on your computer. Getting your passwords. Accessing your bank accounts.

So if you get a call like this, just hang up. Maybe swear a little first.
