Reimage Scam

One of the browser windows I opened in MS Edge 2 days ago started emitting a continous bleeping noise this morning when I reopened Edge.

The usual scam message appeared which claimed the computer was damaged and required urgent repairs.

However, when I closed the window today, another window appeared which was titled “Reimage - How To Fix Windows Errors”.

I Googled the scam and found these warnings.

And a couple of screenshots of the scam which has numerous “helpful” links to click on.

Yes, I often see similar advertisements…and just ignore them as they are scams.
