Protection from Scams

My clients know that I’m a friendly guy! But not all computer “consultants” are friendly. As a matter of fact, some people pose as one of us but are actually scam experts trying to steal your personal information and hard-earned money. They may email you, or a message may pop up on your screen telling you that you have a virus or a security issue and you should call the provided phone number.

Once they have you on the phone, they try to gain your trust by pretending to be associated with well-known companies or confusing you with a barrage of technical terms. They may ask you to perform a series of complex tasks on your computer. Sometimes, they target legitimate computer files and claim that they are viruses. Their tactics are designed to scare you into believing they can help fix your “problem.”

If this happens to you, STOP! One of the many benefits of using MACximize is we are available “23/7” to fix your issue. So call us at 212-330-6789 before it’s too late.

Here are few things to remember if you get any kind of tech-support call, no matter who they say they are:
• Don’t give control of your computer to anyone who calls you offering to “fix” your computer.
• Never give out or confirm your financial or sensitive information to anyone who contacts you.
• Getting pressure to act immediately? That’s a sure sign of a scam. Hang up.

And know that we at MACximize are here to assist you with all that ails your Mac, iPhone, or iPad. Your Mac will say thank you!

And please don’t keep us a secret — tell your friends! 😀
