Phone Scams

Not all types of hacking always get done over a computer. Sometimes people impersonate Microsoft employees to get at your personal information. To help you watch out for phone scams, we’ve put together a little information about them:






If you get a call from someone who claims to work for Microsoft, they may try to sell you a software license or ask if you need help with your computer. Both of these things should raise a red flag. Some of their goals might include: having you install malicious software, downloading software that will give them control over your computer, getting your credit car number, and more.

Should you encounter this type of scam, do not ever give up your credit card information or download anything. Ask for the person’s name and call the authorities.


If your computer has gotten infected by viruses, Total Tech Repair can help. For more information, just call one of our qualified employees at (631) 517-0021.
