800-656-6115 is a phone number that will connect you with crooks who claim to be qualified IT specialists. They try to convince every caller that his system is infected with a high-level cyber threat. The bogus technicians commonly attempt to scare the innocent person by listing a series of unpleasant consequences that are about to happen. For example, they may state that the personal information is at risk, or that essential banking passwords may be stolen. If the user believes their lies, the scammers will gladly offer help. Of course, their services are not free as they ask for a payment of a few hundred dollars. If you agree to send them your cash, you will just lose your money. Neither are they able to help with PC-related issues, nor your system is infected with actual malware. However, there may be a browser hijacker in your machine. Various websites try to convince the users to call 800-656-6115 for assistance. Some of them are microsoft-windows-support.com, mac-technical-support.com, quicken-help.com and popup-help.com. If your system is affected by a browser hijacker, you may be redirected to any of them automatically. What is even worse, these suspicious add-ons may generate numerous pop-ups that state there is a problem with your system. If these fake security warnings are accompanied by some minor issues like browser freezes, the user may indeed believe he is in danger. Instead of dialing 800-656-6115, you should perform an in-depth scan with reputable anti-malware software to delete the hijacker.
