Technical Support Fraud Alert
The FBI recently issued a Public Service Announcement regarding technical support fraud. Tech Support Fraud involves a criminal claiming to provide customer, security, or technical support in an effort to defraud unwitting individuals. This scam is particularly effective because victims think they are contacting a legitimate technical support team. To learn more about this scam, please see the FBI’s Public Service Announcement.
If you believe you are a victim of an online scam regardless of the dollar amount, you can file a complaint with your local law enforcement, the FBI IC3 unit, or the Federal Trade Commission.
