    Identify a scam

    Be aware of the sneaky tricks used by scammers to access your computers and mobile devices via remote access software. Scammers may reach out to you via email or a phone call pretending to be associated with a reputable company and try to lure sensitive information from you. They may ask to access your computers in the pretext of offering free support or technical assistance. Any such fraudulent or suspicious calls and emails should be reported immediately.

    Protect yourself and your family

    Upon receiving a call or an email asking to divulge confidential information ensure the caller’s or sender’s identity. If you are not convinced, hang up the call or do not click any links in the email. You may try to verify the legitimacy of the call by contacting the support number mentioned on the company’s official website.
