With the increasing advent of online customer service portals and chatbots, the potential for technology support solutions and customer services is boundless and instantaneous. However, so too is the potential for cybercriminals, malware and scammers to abuse these services. Two out of three people experienced a tech support scam in 2015 according to a report from the Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit.

This is why it is so important to use a reputable name in the servicing and maintenance of your business’ technology. Imagetext’s Integrated Solutions have over three decades of professional experience in IT and technology solutions, and our industry-celebrated iCare™ services will keep your technology secure from criminal activity, no matter the scale of your operations. 

Online support services & tech scammers

Online support services are increasingly popular, and are usually the first port of call for customers looking to engage with your business. Indeed, over half of the customer service interactions with businesses were conducted online last year, as Microsoft reports.

Customers seek out online support for its convenience – but in doing so can expose themselves to risk. Online fraudsters spread fear by claiming there is an unexplained issue in their victims’ software or device that needs fixing, before delivering a phony sales pitch and securing online banking details to ‘fix’ the problem, to be used for further scams. You need to know that when you reach out for help with your technology, you will get a reputable and safe solution.
