How Can I Steal Your Information?
There’s a new twist on tech-support scams — you know, the one where crooks try to get access to your computer or sensitive information by offering to “fix” a computer problem that doesn’t actually exist.
Lately, we’ve heard reports that people are getting calls from someone claiming to be from the Global Privacy Enforcement Network. Their claim? That your email account has been hacked and is sending fraudulent messages. They say they’ll have to take legal action against you, unless you let them fix the problem right away. This is the latest scam alert for the Federal Trade Commission, Division of Consumer Business Education and they are all too familiar.
It seems every week the scammers come up with a new way to steal your money or your information. How can we stop it? By being informed and by letting your customers know the latest tricks.
