Beware about Scareware Software Live Supports

Beware about Scareware Software Live Supports
Now a days fake anti-virus software (scareware )distributors are offering 'Online Support' to convince their victims to steal their valuable data including credit card information. This was discovered by Mr. Nicolas Brulez of Kaspersky that the scareware distributors are now offering actual live support. Users installing fake anti-virus software Security Master AV and clicking on the 'Online Support' button are directed to a chat window in which they can put questions directly to the scareware 'vendor'. As a special offer, the 'support team' offers a one-day trial version of the full product, which reliably removes the imaginary malware identified by the 'demo' version from the user's system. Debora Brown, Kendra Grace and David Lee appear to have all the time in the world online to convince victims in fluent English that their software is genuine and to get them to install the bogus full product. Alternatively, victims can call them up, or send an email. It is suspected that the extra-helpful scareware distributor is located in Russia or the Ukraine. The FBI recently charged three men accused of extracting around $100 million from internet users in more than 60 countries.
