How to Avoid Phishing Scams and Attacks?

2 Comments

  1. My issue is with MSN.com which I use for my news. I don’t open Sponsored websites anymore. What happened to me twice, once today, is that when I open a news site it will tell me that my computer is locked and to call a number and it advises me not to shut down because my email, contacts, etc is being compromised. I have to shut down my computer to get rid of the offending website. Why do you allow this? A friend of mine fell for it, called the number and they said it would cost $ 150.00. She, unfortunately, gave a credit card number and the charge was close to $600.00. Luckily she called her credit card company and they reversed the charges. Today’s ad was “Why Marco Rubio really suspended his candidacy”. Doesn’t Microsoft monitor its ads?
