Whatever alert you are seeing on your screen, we can assure that it is saying that there is a serious issue on your computer. You’re probably seeing a alleged malware, licensing or system issues, because con artists are not very original when it comes to schemes, and they’re all basically identical. Since scare tactics are notably effective with less-computer savvy users, it wouldn’t be shocking to see warnings about potential data breaches. A phone number would be flashing somewhere, the pop-up requesting you to dial it, and if you did, you would be connected to skilled con artists. One thing to remember is that real software or security company would never ask users to call them. So if you see such warnings, alleging to come from Apple or Microsoft, know that it’s a scam. The con artists would try to trick you into giving remote access to your device, they would then attempt to fix the non-existent issue and charge you a large amount of money. The reason these tech-support scams still exist is because less-computer knowledgeable users still fall for them. Even if you dismiss the first advert, it would pop-up over and over again later on, so it’s not hard to see why some users would fall for these scams. However, even if you completely believe the warning, you need to still investigate using a trustworthy search engine. The first results will certainly lead to web pages that report it as a scam. So you could just safely ignore the warnings while you get rid of what is causing them. If advertising-supported program  is to blame for them, you will need to locate and eliminate Bankworm Virus adware to make them stop.
