This is another great post to stay inform 1st of all.

As I see, those scams/cold-callings are using very simple yet confusing techniques that for the non computer savvy or for not having too much knowledge in computers, these type of scam can be a point to confuse the victim and get into panic and obey to what the "tech support" is telling him to do in order to " help " the target user.

The only defense here is to use common sense, stop think breath, then do. Also to get more informed and educated in info sec as we are more and more being depended on computers today, so the best defense would be to educate yourself and others.

Android tech support: you must know about the i parameter.

I think these days Android tech support scams are flourishing just like the popularity of Android apps are increasing. Recently I became a victim of Android tech support scam but now I understand that a little of consciousness will definitely help us to avoid becoming victim of such scams.
