((BOB)) AáAáRáP IS ISSUING A WARNING ABOUT TECH SUPPORT SCAMMERS IT'S ESTIMATED TO IMPACT 3 POINT 3 MILLION PEOPLE EACH YEARáááWITH AN AVERAGE LOSS OF MORE THAN 450á HUNDRED DOLLARS PER VICTIM

OUR ASHLEI KING SHOWS US AN EXAMPLE OF THIS TYPE OF SCAM THE WAY THIS WORKS IS SOMEONE YOUR COMPUTER OR PHONE IS DANGEROUSLY ILL AND NEEDS AN IMMEDIATE COSTLY CURE

THEY END UP STEALING YOUR MONEY OR EVEN YOUR IDENTITY AND NEVER "FIX" YOUR DEVICE HERE'S SOME AUDIO PROVIDED BY THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION TAKEN FROM AN UNDERCOVER CALL BETWEEN A TECH SUPPORT SCAMMER AND AN FáTáC INVESTIGATOR Scammer: OK So now what you need to do, Madam, you need to scroll down the page very slowly, very carefully, from your end And you need to just scroll it down and tell me if you can see anything else, other than the blue color information over there or not

And if you see anything else over there, let me know then and there, OK? Investigator: OK Hold on I'm doing that Let me go through Scammer: Be very careful, all right? Investigator: Let's see

Oops, hold on Scammer: Uh huh Investigator: I see something that says warning, and something that says error Scammer: Jesus, did you see some warnings? THAT'S AN EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THESE CALLS SO HERE'S WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

BIG TECH COMPANIES LIKE MICROSOFT OR APPLE SAY THEY DON'T CALL CUSTOMERS OUT OF THE BLUE TO WARN THEM ABOUT PROBLEMS WITH THEIR DEVICES IF THE CALLER CLAIMS YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR COMPUTER DON'T ENGAGE OR RETURN THE CALL IF YOU GET A POPáUP THAT FREEZES YOUR SCREEN SHUT DOWN YOUR COMPUTER AND RESTART IT IF YOU HAPPEN TO GET A CALL LIKE THIS YOU CAN REPORT IT TO THE FáTáC

I'M ASHLEI KING, BACK TO YOU ((BOB)) THANK YOU ASHLEI AND IF YOU'VE FALLEN VICTIM TO THIS SCAMááá OR ANY OTHER SCAM
