A phone number is also provided – 0800 004 214. However, by registering on the page and calling the number, the user will only endanger his credit card balance and phone bill.
The user may have been redirected to Skipperse.in and pcexperts.co.nz after clicking on a random pop-up window or a fake update. In some cases, when the PC is infiltrated by a PUP, fake alerts about viruses found on the system may be displayed on the browser.
Usually, all of these attempts are linked to a scamming website promoting rogue anti-virus programs, fake tech support lines, and such.
The user should not call random numbers because he may:
- Grant remote access to cyber criminals. Once such access is obtained, the system may be filled with numerous PUPs and adware, or even malware.
- Be charged an enormous amount of money for a service that is nothing but shady. Even numbers described as ‘toll-free’ may be suspicious and should not be trusted.
