Tech support scams


"Tech support scams are schemes claiming your system is infected based on random popups that may appear while browsing the internet.

Remember, trusted brands will NEVER include their phone numbers randomly on error messages you see on the screen.

Do not call those numbers, only call the official numbers of your trusted IT support.

If you feel you were a victim of a tech support scam, please contact Clear Concepts immediately. support@clearconcepts.ca"
