We have had a lot of people come into our store talking about these support scams. Someone from Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, or other well known tech company calls to say they detected a problem on their computer. They get logged into the computer, install a bogus support software app (that really just throws up warnings occasionally), and charge them $100-$300 a year for 'support'. The app throws up more warnings at the renewal date gets near – and they scam people out of their money. This is an excellent article outlining the many avenues these scammers use to prey on people.
