Tech Support Scams

Scam artists are using the phone to try to break into your computer.  They call, claiming to be computer techs associated with well-known companies like Microsoft or from the University of Toledo's IT Department.  They say that they have detected viruses or other malware on your computer to trick you into giving them remote access or your UTAD credentials.

If you get a call from someone who claims to be a tech support person, hang up and call them back yourself on a phone number you know to be genuine.
