Are you getting a random pop up on your computer screen asking you to call a phone number so they can fix your computer. This is not limited to Microsoft Operating Systems. Apple users are also experiencing this scam.
Fake virus warnings have plagued the computer industry for years but never before have we seen such a rampant attempt to steal money from computer users.
Once the pop up hits you have to assume your computer is infected with an adware or possible unwanted program. The internet browser on your computer most likely has a malicious add on extension which needs to be removed. These extensions usually are invited in when downloading another free software. Many times free games, video recording or streaming videos are tied to malicious browser extensions.
The pop up makes a bogus claim that for a nominal fee they will remove the massive amount of computer infections from your computer. Scare tactics stating that your infected often include colorful images or multiple infections which are not actually infections at all.
With the help of many sources we have compiled a list of just a few of the bogus infections they list.
