Learn how the upcoming Windows upgrade may affect you.
Protect Your Personal Information.
At Tompkins Mahopac Bank, the security of your personal information is important to us. As you may be aware, Microsoft is in the process of releasing their new Windows 10 operating system. This free upgrade for home PC users promises to fix issues with earlier versions, and claims to be more secure. Microsoft plans to upgrade massive amounts of personal home computers, which may cause confusion among users.
Cyber criminals are already trying to exploit this confusion, and you may receive calls or emails from individuals that claim to be Microsoft technical support. These individuals may try to charge you for the complimentary upgrade using your credit card information. If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to work for Microsoft, hang up immediately. Be very careful with any email claiming to be from Microsoft referencing your Windows 10 upgrade. Do not click on any link or open any attachment. If you would like to read more information regarding the upgrade, visit Microsoft's website directly to avoid clicking a link in a potentially dangerous email.
