Beware of cyber scam using bogus ‘tech support’ calls

Over the past few months, several Sinu customers have encountered a cyber scam in which someone calls and claims to be with Windows or Microsoft tech support. They tell you they have detected a virus or a malfunction in your computer and ask you to log into a legitimate-looking website. The cybercriminal posing as “tech support” will then log into your computer, gaining access to personal data while planting a real virus or malware in your computer.  Ultimately, they will ask their victims for some amount of money to release control of the computer.
