Fake Security Alert.

Don't call the number!

Have you had a pop-up window appear on your screen, telling you that you have a virus?

  1. It's fake. (Even if it says "MontanaSky Networks" or the name of your current provider)
  2. Do not call the number!
  3. Do not allow remote access to your computer!
  4. Do not give them your credit card!
     

You may have a computer virus.
These scammers often infect your computer and then ask for money to get it off.


If you have done any of those actions listed above:

  1. Call your bank and cancel the credit card you used to pay for the service.
  2. Dispute the charges with your credit card issuing company.
  3. Take your computer to a local trusted computer repair shop and have them clean it.
