SECURITY ALERT - A New Twist On Tech-Support Scams
For some time, scammers have known how to trick innocent computer users
into divulging sensitive information (which they can later use for
malicious purposes) by calling and offering to "fix" the victim's
computer. To sound convincing, these crooks make up phony reasons why the
computer needs to be repaired. Now the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has
been hearing reports of people getting calls from scammers claiming to be
from the Global Privacy Enforcement Network (GPEN) saying that the
victim's email has been hacked and is sending out fraudulent messages.
The criminals further claim they must fix the problem immediately or the
user will be subject to legal action.
GPEN is a real organization that strives for cooperation in the
enforcement of cross-border privacy laws. Its website has issued the
following statement as part of an alert addressing this scam: "GPEN and
PrivacyEnforcement.net do not contact individual consumers via phone or
The alert further cautions you to not send money, give financial
information, or follow instructions if contacted by someone claiming to
be from the site. Here are some additional tips from the FTC:
~Don't give control of your computer to anyone who calls you offering to
~If a caller pressures you to act immediately, hang up.
~If you have doubts about who is contacting you or why, call the company
the person is claiming to be from directly with contact information you
Remember, scammers will always try, but they don't always have to
succeed. Cut them off, and they won't be able to get what they're after.
