Popup scammers 855-450-1770

Scammer number: 855-450-1770
Popup link: don’t have
Any other scammer information: My FIL got a popup 2/21 in the morning. he called the number. they ran netstat command. they had him download ultraviewer. They had notepad open.I showed up at his house after they were logged in for about 20 minutes and I hung up on them immediately. I regret not calling him the appropriate names. My FIL said that they were very polite. It’s a new labtop with nothing on it and no passwords saved. I checked the browsing history, uninstalled ultraviewer, changed his login password, ran full windows defender scan, and checked the box not allowing applications access.

Make sure you’ve also disabled all 3 “Remote Desktop” services too.

Make sure ScreenConnect isn’t running in “services” under Administrative Tools. If it is, you need to disable it from running on startup (under properties) and then stop it from running.
