The problem of telecom fraud is not only serious in China, but similar situations occur everywhere in the world, except that the people with different means are different.

Recently, a group of scammers targeted Microsoft users. According to NDTV, Microsoft filed a complaint with the Indian anti-cybercrime team. Microsoft executives claimed that they found that many companies in Delhi claimed to be Microsoft-supported branches, but they did not actually get Microsoft's license.

These companies use the technical support guise to offer "fix" services, ranging in price from $100 to $500.

After reviewing Microsoft's TechNet website, more than 3,000 technical support scams were discovered. The police then seized the companies and found technical training documents, fake invoices, telephone recordings and performance sheets.

According to Microsoft, some users were affected by the pop-up webpage, and then the system prompted the computer to be threatened by a virus, and then contacted by the so-called "technical support" through a pop-up phone, which required remote access to repair the machine. Then cost a high price to join the subscription service to ensure that the virus does not re-infect. According to the law, the behavior has already constituted fraud, and some lawless elements will take advantage of the opportunity to obtain user information, even without the possibility of remote installation of malware.

During the arrest, 24 Indians were arrested for posing as Microsoft technical support personnel.
