  • Inside tech support scams

    Posted on April 10th, 2021 at 12:03 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    My Dad spotted this article in the latest AARP bulletin:

    Inside an International Tech-Support Scam (aarp.org)

    It’s an interesting read.

    As he says… “What’s the ultimate solution to this growing fraud menace? Realistically, it will require a mix of tough law enforcement, tighter regulations and increased education to warn consumers of these evil practices.”

    Just a reminder, if you have any stories or tips you can send them to Brian Livingston, Public Defender as scams and tricks are what he loves to investigate best.
