Every so often we hear a news report of a crook who impersonates a police officer and attempts to commit a crime against a trusting and unsuspecting victim.

Did you know you may be subject to a somewhat similar ploy? It happens thus: a credible looking but false security warning appears on your computer screen; the warning will indicate that viruses have been found in your system and will instruct you to follow a set of directions in order to eliminate the threat.

While you may not have a virus yet, you very likely will if you accept the advice. Don’t follow bogus advice.

What should you do?

  1. Know your internet security software—how it works and what its icons and interface look like
  2. Only accept guidance from a trusted source
  3. When in doubt, disconnect the computer from the network, turn off the computer, and contact ForeSight
