As you can see the site has many pop-ups appearing and claiming that you have a serious malfunction. It also detects the current OS and browser that you are using as well as their versions. You can see what the pop-up message says below:

Axzbryg.trade says…

stf-axzbryg-trade-fake-tech-support-scam-bsod-error-main-website-page

The text on the background reads the following:

to immediately rectify the issue to prevent Data Loss.

The Axzbryg.trade site tries to imitate a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) and failing because of the gray color used instead of blue. People who know what a blue screen is will also know that it cannot appear in a browser. Various fake error messages are written to try and trick you further into calling the fake tech support number.

The cybercriminals want to make you think that the only way to fix the problems on your computer is by calling the (877)-337-7936 phone number. They also will lie that they are part of Microsoft’s technical support team. That is not true as Microsoft do not even have a help phone line. Everything is done in a way to scare you into calling the provided number.

Do NOT call the fake helpline in all circumstances. It is not free as it is promoted, and even the shortest of calls can cost you a small fortune. Besides, while the con artists will try to sweet talk you and supposedly try to help you, they will attempt to extract personal information and financial details from you. This information could be sold to the highest bidder on the black market, and you could get into a big mess.
