A computer phone call scam is on the rise!
Be suspicious if you receive a phone call from a security 'expert' offering to fix your PC. The expert will say that your PC or laptop has been infected with malware, and that they can help you solve the problem. Some crooks will ask you to give them remote access to your PC or laptop, and use that access to obtain personal data. Others will ask you to download a tool which they say is the "fix" for your problem, but actually installs malware on your computer. Or, they may just ask for money for protection from the malware they pretend is on your computer. No legitimate security company is ever going to call you in this way.
