Do not call the number

By Chloe Noel
Ada Public Library tech trainer

As a technology trainer working in public libraries for over three years, one unfortunate trend I've seen increasing is the number of fake viruses and scams. In order to help keep your technology (and your bank account) safe from online scammers, I've compiled a list of things to watch for.

1) It is easier now for people to make fake viruses than it is to make real ones. These fake viruses usually pop up on your screen with a message saying something like "Your computer has been infected. Call Windows (or Microsoft) Tech Support at XXX-XXX-XXXX.”

This year, 550 local residents turned in logs about what they read. This is the first year that the library has passed the 500 figure.
