Overview

We are trying to better understand how common "Fake Tech Support" calls are, and what they are trying to achieve. If you received a call that claims to provide tech support, or another service, only to extract information from you or to trick you into installing malware on your system, please use the Report Fake Calls Form to report any details.

Data fields for our API are being finalized and we expect to publish that soon!

Privacy Note: We will share this data in aggregate form as part of the publicly visible reports on this site. Individual submissions may be shared with other researchers.
