'+61 (1800) 893-775' Pop-Ups

Posted: September 12, 2016

The '+61 (1800) 893-775' pop-ups are part of a technical support tactic whose affected computer users are most likely to be residents of Australia due to '+61' being the country code of Australia. These pop-ups may appear out of nowhere, and most users are surprised by them because they tend to be accompanied by audio files that are played automatically and a number of annoying alerts and warnings that may prove to be difficult to close. The text and audio content tell users the same thing – that their computers' security has been breached, and they may lose their login credentials, credit card details, other important information and files stored on their computers. Although the messages may seem shocking and scary at first, you can rest assured that all warnings are fake! Web browser pop-ups can never give you correct information regarding your computer's health and security, and pop-ups that do this may often be linked to fake technical support services. This is exactly the case with the '+61 (1800) 893-775' pop-ups – they claim to promote 'technical support services by certified Microsoft technicians', but in reality, this number is operated by extortionists that may attempt to take money and information from you.

Users who end up calling '+61 (1800) 893-775' may be overwhelmed with error codes and fake information regarding their computer's health. The con artists may spend a lot of time trying to assure the computer users that their computers are in danger, and it is up to them to act and resolve all pending issues. Unsurprisingly, the con artists have all the right tools and services to fix the problem, but using them may cost hundreds of dollars. It is not uncommon for technical support hoaxes like the one linked to the '+61 (1800) 893-775' pop-ups, to charge users large amounts of money for a barely useful PC optimization software, fake anti-virus software or unreliable technical support services.

Seeing the '+61 (1800) 893-775' pop-ups in your Web browser is rarely associated with a threat infection, so you shouldn't worry too much if you see these messages in your browser window. However, this doesn't mean that you should not take the necessary action to get rid of them. We recommend using a reputable anti-malware scanner to make sure that the '+61 (1800) 893-775' pop-ups aren't being caused by any software installed on your computer.
