How to detect scammers?
Scammers are basically after your money.
So what’s their next step after accessing your device?
They will probably try to access your bank account.
If someone who is remotely connected to your device is asking you to login to your bank account or to show any personal passwords, they are most likely a scammer. Don’t follow their instructions! Even if they say you need to pay them because they alleged to have solved a problem you were having with your computer or internet connection, don’t trust them. You didn’t ask for their “help.”
Don’t forget, if you feel uncomfortable or insecure, you can:
- Stop any phone call just by hanging up
- End any remote session by simply turning off your device
