Recently, Ryan Duquette, a member of the incoming ACFE-GTA Chapter Board of Directors, and the recently appointed Senior Vice-President, Professional Development for the ACFE-GTA Chapter spoke with the CBC programme Marketplace as they investigated Tech-Support scams that are targeting Canadians.
The Bottom Line:
NEVER allow anyone ACCESS to your computer. NEVER!
These callers LIE...There is NOTHING WRONG With your COMPUTER!!
DON'T PAY ANYTHING. NO CREDIT CARD! NO GIFT CARD! NO APPLE CARD!
HANG UP...DON"T TALK to THEM...DON'T GIVE OUT ANY INFO.
Ryan said on his LinkedIn posting about the interview, "Education is a great method to reduce victimization and I hope this episode stops even one person from falling for this growing and popular scam. Kudos to the Marketplace team for their dedication and hard work in educating the public on scams and frauds." Ryan is a Partner with RSM Canada LLP in their Security, Privacy and Risk Consulting Practice.Check-out the story here
