Notice - First Warning Scam

What is Notice - First Warning Scam?

Notice - First Warning Scam is one of the keywords we use for a tech support scam that is created to push innocent users into spending their money on a non-existent product. There are several reasons this notification appears on your screen, and we will look at each of them further in this description.

What you have to understand from the first paragraph is that Notice - First Warning Scam is a fake message that should not be trusted, and there is nothing reliable about the things it says. Hence, you will do yourself a favor if you close your browser’s window right now.

Where does Notice - First Warning Scam come from?

As mentioned, there might be several reasons why this fake alert appears on your screen. In this part of the description, we will look closer into two main potential reasons behind it.

First, you could have opened a website that is full of advertisements and links to third-party sites. There are file-sharing websites out there that are very good at spamming users with random commercial pop-ups. So it is also quite likely that Notice - First Warning Scam popped up into your screen because you landed on some page that supported third-party advertising. That is actually the most common reason such tech support scams find their victims. Users surf unfamiliar and potentially harmful sites and they accidentally bump into these notifications.

Second, there might be a potentially unwanted program, an adware application or a Trojan installed on your system, and this type of application could be easily generating the fake alert. However, if it is really about the software that is installed on your computer, then you should definitely scan your PC with a reliable antispyware tool. It might not be easy to get rid of a program that displays such fake alerts on your own.

What does Notice - First Warning Scam do?

The good news is that such tech support scams cannot do much on their own. Unless you follow their instructions, they are more of annoying nuisances that will interfere with your web browsing sessions, but they will not do much on their own.

Nevertheless, users who do not encounter such things often get scared by the sheer force of these notifications, especially considering how intrusive they can be. Imagine if you simply browse the web, and then suddenly another window opens on your browser, and there a message says that there is something fundamentally wrong with your system’s security.

Notice - First Warning Scam will try to make you think that you have been hacked by cyber criminals. The fake alert will say that those cyber criminals dropped illegal files on your computer. These illegal files supposedly contain child pornography, and if legal authorities find something like that on your system, you will probably be taken to court for that. Hence, it is only natural that users who get scared by Notice - First Warning Scam will scramble to call the given support number at +1-855-426-7111. Supposedly, this is a Microsoft support number that will help you deal with the illegal content.

However, what does Microsoft have to do with illegal files and hackers? If you get hacked, you obviously need to contact cyber police, not Microsoft. The most important thing is to refrain from dialing this number because the scammers on the other end will be bound to push you into spending your money for nothing. They will tell you that you have to purchase a particular product that should help you avoid any unwanted consequences. However, if you give away your credit card details to these criminals, you will not be able to avoid devastating money loss. Hence, keep your phone to yourself and do everything you can to terminate Notice - First Warning Scam.
