Extortion Scams on Computers Getting Worse

If you see an email accusing you of breaking the law, that your computer is infected, they have “information” about you, or just plain weird delete it immediately.

There has been a big spike in extortion emails going around recently and it is just getting worse.

If you get a call, email, or popup saying that they are “Microsoft” the “IRS”, etc… it is always a scam. These companies would never call you.

It does not matter if you have a Mac or PC, Android or Iphone. You may see them on all platforms.
