IT Tech Scams...
Microsoft or Apple do NOT call you up about an infected device.
If you need service, contact Microsoft or Apple through their support numbers found on their own sites...Be prepared to pay a reasonable fee for a repair. Trying to get something inexpensive could cost you BIG dollars in the long run.
Do NOT use Google or other search engines on the internet to find repair support. Talk to your local mobile phone company (the one from whom you bought your phone and have your mobile service...OR, the manufacturer of the device (e.g., Asus, HP, Acer, etc.) using the contact information found in the documentation you received when you bought your device.
**If you get a call like this...HANG UP....Make sure the line is still not open before you dial...Report it to your local police department.**
