Support On Click Scam / Online Fraud via

Today a friend at work told me that they were recently contacted by a computer support company,, and told her that her computer was running slow and they would fix it remotely for a fee.  She was not very computer savvy and said yes and gave them her credit card information. $269 dollars later someone from a fake tech support company accessed her computer remotely and did untold damage to her PC and was most likely planting a virus.

There are countless accounts online of this scam being perpetrated and most of the victims seem to be old folks and those who are not tech savvy at all.

So hopefully this article helps at least one person before that get caught by this scam.
