Nasty Phone Scam!

A woman in Clarkstown, NY had problems with her laptop. The problem was worked on by a certified tech. Then a phone call from someone claiming to be a repair tech wanted access to her laptop, insisting it was hacked and infected, and remote access was required. Sounded authentic, so she gave access to the caller. A minute later, a demand for $3,000.00 US to $5,000.00 US was made or her laptop would be wiped out! And it was.
Don't fall for this scam! Call the tech center you worked with.
