Scammers Create Spoofed Technical Support Site
The NJCCIC recently detected a spoofed technical support webpage on a popular NJ website containing a fake toll-free number and links. Calling this toll-free number will likely connect the user to a scammer posing as a technical support representative. Clicking on the links will likely connect the user to a fraudulent technical support site meant to deceive the user into providing personal or financial information. This action could potentially download malware or remote access software onto the user's system. The spoofed webpage also contained incomplete sentences and grammatical errors. The NJCCIC recommends users refrain from clicking on unsolicited links and to instead navigate directly to official company websites when searching for technical support contact information. We encourage victims to report incidents to their local police departments and to the NJCCIC via the Cyber Incident Report form.
