HTC is warning customers about an internet pop-up scam targeting HTC Internet customers. Please be aware that this is a scam and not a legitimate warning message from HTC.

The pop-up screen is disguised as a warning to mislead customers into believing there has been a critical security breach. There is a toll-free number in the warning message that directs customers to call for immediate assistance. When someone calls the toll-free number, those that answer are posing as Microsoft support personnel.

HTC is not associated with this message or the representatives answering the toll-free calls. HTC advises customers not to give any personal information over the phone as that may jeopardize the security of your personal identity as well as any information stored in your computer.
