Unfortunately it is not easy to develop tools that will block this type of scam, as it is based upon abuse of legitimate software. The only thing an antivirus programme can do is to warn upon access/download of remote control utilities, but ultimately scammers are very manipulative and will make their way around. Only awareness can prevent people from falling victims.
