Description:

Original release date: April 06, 2016


The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has released an alert on tech-support themed telephone scams. In these schemes, fraudulent callers claim to be from legitimate technical support organizations and offer to fix computer problems that don't exist. Users should not give control of their computers to anyone who calls offering to "fix" a problem.

US-CERT encourages users and administrators to refer to the FTC Scam Alert and the US-CERT Security Tip on Avoiding Social Engineering and Phishing Attacks for more information.
