Hi cwing714 and welcome to the Trend Micro Community!

Thank you for sharing this information. We are aware that there are scammers out there that impersonate Technical Support by guiding you to legitimate websites to establish the remote connection.

The most common way that these scammers try and lure their victims is by making unsolicited phone calls or through the use of false advertisements to gain control of one's computer. In many cases the third party may misrepresent themselves or their company by claiming to be the original software vendor or an official support agent or representative.

You can check this link to learn more about Suspected Third Party Technical Support Scams.

Please be advised that the website is legitimate but is exploited by these scammers to misrepresent themselves.

Feel free to share this information to your family, friends, peers, etc.

Should you have further inquiries or concerns, feel free to post on the community.

Have a great day! :)
