Type of a scam Tech Support
My husband was on our computer at home trying to find an obituary when a "pop-up" ad came up on the screen that said our computer was infected and at risk. My husband clicked on it and it had a phone number of 1-855-233-3030. He called the number and talked to someone named Alex who proceeded to remotely take over our computer. He said we needed to pay money to get it working correctly – starting at $199 for one year’s coverage up to $399 for 5 years. WHAT A SCAM!!
I will look into this more when I go home!
