So recently, Tuesday and Friday, I have encountered two or three Virus Detected sites that are telling me to call IT support. My understanding is that these sites are just scams trying to get your credit card information, etc. What worries me is that I have been redirected to these sites more than once. At first, I figured that the site I entered was a sketchy site from Google, which redirected me to the IT support. I attempted to test this theory by using Incognito mode in Google Chrome and revisiting those sites. I was correct. If I repeated this multiple times, I would end up redirected to those sites. On Tuesday, this trial only worked once. What was noted was that the original sites seem to be no longer in use. Rather, the site shows a list of other websites. I know that this is something I shouldn't concern myself with, but I am just a little paranoid and would like to ask you guys for advice.

 

Thanks!
