How Scams Work

Scams can come in many forms, but usually follow a similar pattern. The attacker will contact you pretending to be a representative of a trusted organization, such as a bank, a technology service provider, or a government agency. They will convince you that your computer is at risk, that you have won a prize, or that you have a refund pending, and will ask you to grant access to your computer via Iperius Remote to “solve” the problem.

Warning Signs to Consider

  • Unexpected requests for remote access to your computer.
  • Pressure to act immediately.
  • Requests for payment through unusual methods, such as gift cards or cryptocurrency transfers.
  • Promises of refunds or prize winnings that seem too good to be true.

How to Protect Yourself

  • Never grant remote access to your computer to people or organizations you do not know or trust.
  • Do not make payments or provide personal information in response to unexpected requests.
  • Always verify the identity of those who contact you, seeking independent contact information and directly calling the organization.
  • Use the security settings provided by Iperius Remote, such as unique passwords and two-factor authentication.

If You Believe You Have Been a Victim of Fraudulent Access

  • Disconnect immediately from any ongoing remote control session.
  • Change all important passwords, especially those related to financial services and email.
  • Contact your bank or credit card provider if you have provided financial information.
  • Report the incident to local authorities.

Conclusion

The security of users is of utmost importance to Iperius Remote, but prevention is the key to protecting yourself from scams.
