This service is through Lutheran Social Ser- vice, funded in part by a contract Beware tech support scams Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) is once again noting an uptick in reports of the "Tech Support" scam. Generally, this scheme is perpetrated over the phone: homeowners or business owners receive calls from 'tech- nicians' saying there's a problem with.their computer. But these sup- posed experts are only interested in collecting credit card informa- tion or gaining remote access to users' co.mputers. A newer wrin- kle to this scheme involves pop-up messages telling people their com- puter has been infected by a virus and they need to call the number on their screen for assistance. "These pop-up messages are often dramatic, using capital let- ters and exclamation points, in order ~9 get people's attention," said Dana Badgerow, president and CEO of BBB of Minnesota and North Dakota. "We're advis- ing people not to panic and not to listen to whatever the message is saying." Based on complaints in BBB files, it appears some of these pop-ups direct people to con- tact companies which may pro- vide some type of technical sup- port. However, if these compa- nies - as many customers allege - are the ones who make such warn- ings appear on users' screens, via a consumer who says they dealt with the company recently alleges they had no indication the pop-up was an advertisement. "We're once again reminding people that when there's a prob- lem with their computer, they call the experts; not the other way around," adds Badgerow. "And simply because you receive a pop-up saying your computer has a virus, that may not always be the case." No matter if you're confronted with this scheme via a phone call or a pop-up message, it's import- ant to avoid allowing unknown parties to gain remote access to your computer. According to Microsoft, anyone given such access to someone else's computer can install malicious software, steal personal information, take control of the computer or direct customers to fraudulent websites where they are asked to enter their credit card information. eBB offers these tips to avoid the Tech Support scam: Don't trust cold calls. Remember, computer firms don't call you about a problem - you call them. If a caller claims there's a problem with your computer, hang up. Protect your computer. All computers should always have the most recent updates installed for spam filters, anti-virus and anti-spyware software and a secure firewall. Don't let pop-ups panic you. Remember, pop-up messages can't always be trusted. Look for an 'X' to close out the screen. If you're concerned your computer has a virus, call an expert. Research businesses for free at Address the issues. If you've allowed unknown individuals to gain remote access to your com- puter, contact a computer expert. If you've supplied your financial information and suspect fraud, contact your bank or credit card provider immediately.
