Be on the lookout for a new online customer service scam. Impersonators are buying ads to put their bogus ads on top of search engine results.
Click on the website and customers are directed to a fake log-in page. When there's a problem with their "account" customers are directed to call a special number. That's when a fake tech support person gets control of your computer, hacking into your bank account information and stealing your money.
Protect yourself by recognizing the difference between a sponsored ad and actual search engine results. Also, be suspicious of a tech support company that tells you something's wrong with your computer before they've asked you any questions.
Remember to always get referrals before allowing anyone to fix your computer
