While surfing the web I ran into a site that gave me a SCAM pop-up. If you receive this pop-up or other like it, DO NOT call the number. Do not install anything. Just get out of the website. Close the browser if you have to. This is a common tactic. Scammers try to use fear to get you to do what they want.
