Spotting Tech Support Scams

Tech support scammers want you to believe you have a serious problem with your computer, like a virus. They want you to pay for tech support services you don’t need, to fix a problem that doesn’t exist. They often ask you to pay by wiring money, putting money on a gift cardprepaid card or cash reload card, or using a money transfer app because they know those types of payments can be hard to reverse.
