Fraudsters Pose as Dell Technicians, Ask for Payment

Scammers are contacting Dell customers with detailed account information that should only be available to the company, reports SCMagazine, a publication for IT security pros. Fraudsters pose as a computer technician (in this case from Dell) and claim there is a virus or malware on your computer that needs to be fixed immediately. The scammer inevitably asks for hundreds of dollars in payment to fix the problem.
