SEATTLE -- Do you ever receive a call or email from "tech support" of a reputable company? It could be a scam. David Quinlan with the Better Business Bureau says the latest scam they're seeing involves people claiming to be with a legitimate company like Microsoft, calling to alert you that your account has been compromised. They then ask for your login and account information to "help you fix it."

David says, as much as he hates to repeat this phrase, it makes sense: "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is." Watch the video to hear more on how to protect yourself from this latest scam. For more, check out the Better Business Bureau's website HERE.
