Con artists warn you about a variety of different of issues, such as malware, licensing or computer problems. It’s also common for the alert to warn you about data loss or leaks as this makes users panic. According to the pop-up, in order to solve the indicated issues and stop data from leaking, you must dial their tech-support, who are actually con artists.
