It’s not just the weather that is heating up in Philadelphia. Beware of T-Mobile software update scams! Â Many of these scams are designed to make you call a certain number and download malware or give your personal information. Â Watch out for fake T-Mobile customer service numbers that claim to be able to fix all problems with the phone, but actually charge money for their services! Â

The best way to avoid being scammed by these hackers is knowing what they look like before it happens so you can easily spot them when they approach:

*They often have unofficial looking websites – if something seems too good to be true about a website claiming to work for T-Mobile, it probably is!

*They often have fake social media accounts – a common scam includes posting fake T-Mobile alerts on Facebook or Twitter. Â If you don’t know the website and phone number of your carrier, how can you trust them?

*Many use scare tactics to get people to buy their services without asking too many questions. Â They may tell you that they will remove viruses for free if you call right away before even trying to examine what’s going on with your device. This could be anything from malware to an accidental download from the web; all pretty easy fixes by following instructions online (or just visiting tmobile.com). Â Again: if something sounds too good to be true about T-Mobile software updates, it probably is!

*They may have false information about what they are offering. Â This could be anything from the total cost to make them seem like a better deal than other companies or just basic incorrect facts that go unchecked because of how fast the person on the phone will get you off of the line and onto their website quickly without reading through all of your questions. Â Like any other business in this world: if something seems too good to be true, there’s usually a reason for that .

*Scams often target people who don’t know much about T-Mobile services or those with less access to technology in general (elderly). Â Those folks might not understand why their phone is not working and the scammer gets them to download an app or do other things by telling them it will fix their problem.

*They might ask for personal information, like your account number or Social Security Number before you even know if they are a real company! Â This puts people at risk of identity theft as well as means that the scammers can cancel your service without permission when one call from anywhere in the world can disrupt all services on your phone.

*The T-Mobile website offers software updates right on its homepage with no extra steps needed . Â You don’t have to enter any credit card info either: just click through and follow instructions. If you’re still afraid this is too good to be true, call T-Mobile Customer Care.

*If you receive a popup from the browser, read it carefully before clicking on links or buttons and don’t download anything that looks suspicious . Â It may be an app to help manage your phone in addition to legitimate software updates but could also be malware designed for phishing personal information like credit card numbers.
