Another Fake Microsoft Support Hijack

I had been out for some time when I came back and heard this pulsing sound and a recorded voice in the background. I had left Google Chrome up with several tabs open. Facebook, CNN, National Weather Service, Google Calendar and a ticket order form for Annie LIebovitz tickets at SMU. One of them spawned this redirect.

  • This is a SCAM
  • NEVER click on one of these.
  • NEVER call the toll free number.
  • NEVER allow these scammers to connect to your computer.
  • Close your browser.
  • Reboot your computer.
  • Run a virus scan (you won’t find anything)
  • NEVER click on popups that say your Flash Player is out of date. 99.999% of the time they are FAKE.

Short Bio:

The Computer Wizard (TCW). TCW was founded by Warren P. Harris in 1994 to service and repair computers in the San Francisco Bay Area. Relocating the business to Plano, Texas in 1999, TCW continued to flourish when an unfortunate loss of data for a wedding Mr. Harris photographed, caused him to research data recovery options. Realizing he would have to either pay someone to recover the photos or find out how to do it himself, the rest, as they say “is history”. Approached by a friend who was a Private Investigator in 2006, Mr. Harris studied for his Investigator’s license and began honing his skills in Computer Forensics. The company was renamed DFW Computer Integration in 2015.
