These types of alerts will also try to intimidate you with warnings about data breaches and leaked information because this urges less experienced users. The ad will declare that so as to solve the supposed issues and stop data from leaking, you must dial their tech-support, who are actually scammers. If you are ever wondering about the legitimacy of such warnings, keep in mind that legitimate software or security companies won’t ask you to contact them through some random phone number. So if supposedly Microsoft or Apple is requesting you to call them via some warnings, know that it is a scam. The scammers will use terms less-computer savvy may not know so as to seem legitimate, will explain that the issues have to be urgently resolved, and charge a lot of money. Tech-support scams are very transparent but because less-computer savvy people have not encountered them before, they could become victims. Even if you don’t pay attention to the first advert, it would appear again and again later on, so people falling for such a scam isn’t a scenario that is difficult to imagine. But a simple way to find out if it’s a scam is to simply use a search engine to look into it. Likely, the first couple of results will prove that it’s a scam.
