Tech support scams

Tech support scams are a type of fraud where scammers pretend to be technical support representatives from reputable companies such as Singtel. They contact victims via phone or email and claim that their computer has a virus or other technical problem that needs to be fixed. The scammers then ask for remote access to the victim’s computer and charge them for unnecessary repairs or software. To protect yourself from tech support scams, you should never give control of your computer to a third party unless you can confirm that it is a legitimate representative of a computer support team.
