Scam

Fake IRS or US Treasury extortion scam by madarchod criminals phoning from India This is a fake IRS or US Treasury scam by criminals phoning from India, threatening to sue you or arrest you for fake unpaid back taxes or fake tax evasion so they can try to steal your money, Social Security number, and other personal information. Sometimes the call begins with the India scammer pretending to be an IRS or US Treasury officer threatening you or sometimes the call begins with a pre-recorded robotic person speaking English that is generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of this India scam, but then you are transferred to an India scammer who threatens to arrest you for unpaid back taxes or tax evasion. The recording may mention fake federal crimes, fake arrest warrants, fake legal enforcement action, fake appearance before the magistrate judge, or a fake Case ID number. The India scammer may ask for your SSN, drivers license number, bank account/routing number, credit card numbers, and other personal information "for verification purposes". Many scammers quickly look up your Caller ID phone number so they can find your street address and falsely threaten to immediately send the police, yelling at you, "I am sending officers to arrest you now!" The scammer often tries to threaten and coerce you into driving to a bank to wire them thousands of dollars. These fake IRS, Social Security, and credit/loan scams either ask for your credit card number, or want you to buy thousands of dollars in gift cards or directly wire them money from a bank while they stay on the phone with you. Basically, it is an extortion phone call and these hundreds of fake India-based IRS and Social Security scams always bombard you with calls from thousands of different phone numbers to try to scare you. The IRS and SSA are actually required to mail you paper letters and they will never phone you like this, never suspend your SSN due to tax or legal issues, and never threaten to sue or arrest you or demand immediate payment from a phone call. Warn all your elderly relatives and friends because these pathetic India madarchods have been running Social Security and IRS scams for many years now! Many victims of IRS and SSA scams are the senile elderly. Whenever I receive these scam calls, I love to press 1 or call back and toy with these madarchods, often playing with them for more than 30 minutes while I clean house or cook. Unlike most India scams where you cannot phone the madarchods back, these IRS and SSA scammers usually can be phoned back to scam these scammers by acting scared. More than 95% of North America phone scams come from India scammers who operate hundreds of fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day such as posing as a fake pharmacy; fake Social Security officer saying your benefits are suspended; IRS officer collecting on fake unpaid back taxes; bill collector threatening you for fake unpaid debts; fake bank, financial, or Fedex/UPS/DHL scams; pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty, student loan forgiveness, credit card and debt consolidation services; posing as Amazon to falsely say an unauthorized purchase was made to your credit card or your Prime membership was auto-debited from your bank; posing as Microsoft/Dell/HP/Apple to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem or virus on your computer; fake "we are refunding your money" or "your account has been auto-debited" scams; fake Google/Alexa listing and work-from-home scams; posing as an electric utility or Verizon/AT&T/Comcast to say your service is suspended; fake solar panel and home purchase offers; fake fundraisers asking for donations; fake political and lifestyle phone surveys; and the scammers try to steal your credit card, bank account/routing number, Social Security number, and personal information. One India call center may cycle through a fake Social Security, computer subscription auto-renewal, pharmacy, and credit card offer scam during the week. People often hear different scams from the same spoofed Caller ID number. Scammers often use disposable VoIP phone numbers (MagicJack devices) or they spoof fake Caller ID phone numbers. Anyone can use telecom software or a third-party service to phone using fake CID names/numbers. India scammers often spoof fake "8xx-" toll-free numbers. The CID name/number is useless with scam calls unless the scam asks you to phone them back and the CID area code is almost never the origin of the call. You waste your time researching the CID number since scams use spoofed CID numbers from across the U.S. and Canada, totally invalid area codes, and also fake foreign country CID numbers; e.g. fake women crying "help me" emergency scams from India often spoof Mexico and Middle East CID numbers. India scammers also spoof the actual phone numbers of businesses such as Apple, Verizon, and U.S. banks to trick you into thinking that a call is valid. How can you avoid being scammed by phone calls? NEVER trust any unsolicited caller who sells something (most unsolicited calls are scams so your odds of saving money are very poor); offers of a free gift; legal or arrest phone threats or a caller/recording who says you need to reply back soon (pressure tactic); callers who ask you to access a website, download a file, wire transfer money or buy gift cards; claims of suspicious activity on an account; subscriptions being refunded or auto-renewed/auto-debited; and all pre-recorded messages. Recorded messages are far more likely to be malicious scams, and not just telemarketing spam. A common India scam phones you with a fake Amazon recording about a purchase of an iPhone, but Amazon never robo-dials and Amazon account updates are communicated in emails. Many banks use automated fraud alert phone calls to confirm a suspicious purchase, but always verify the number that the message tells you to phone or just call the number printed on your credit card. Any unsolicited caller with a foreign accent, usually Indian, should immediately be treated as a scam. Many scams tell a lie that you recently inquired about a job, insurance, social security benefits, doctor appointment, or that you recently contacted them or visited their website. Scammers try to gain your trust by saying your name when they call, but the autodialer is automatically displaying your name to the scammer or saying your name in a recording when your number is dialed using phone databases that have millions of names and addresses. India scammers often phone with an initial pre-recorded message speaking English, Spanish, or Chinese that is easily generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of their India phone room, but then you speak to the scammer when you press 1 or call them back. Some speech synthesis software sound robotic, but others sound natural. To hide their foreign accents, some India scammers use non-Indians in their phone room. India scammers use interactive voice response (IVR) robotic software that combines voice recognition with artificial intelligence, speaks English with American voices, and responds based on your replies. IVR calls begin with: "Hi, this is fake_name, I am a fake_job_title on a recorded line, can you hear me okay?"; or "Hi, this is fake_name, how are you doing today?"; or "Hello? (pause) Are you there?"; or "Hi, may I speak to your_name?" IVR quickly asks you a short question to elicit a yes/no reply so it hangs up if it encounters voicemail. IVR robots understand basic replies, yes/no/what answers, and basic questions. To test for IVR, ask "How is the weather over there?" since IVR cannot answer complex questions. IVR robots keep talking if you interrupt them in mid-sentence. IVR usually transfers you to the scammer, but some scams entirely use IVR with the robot asking for your credit card or SSN. A common myth is that IVR calls record you saying "yes" so scammers can authorize purchases just using your "yes" voice, but scammers need more information than just a simple recorded "yes" from you - credit cards and SSN. Phone/email scams share two common traits: 1) The Caller ID name/number and the "From:" header on emails are easily faked; and 2) The intent of scam calls is malicious just as file attachments and website links on scam emails are harmful. Scams snowball for many victims. If your personal/financial data are stolen, either by being scammed, visiting a malicious website, or by a previous data breach of a business server that stores your data, then your data gets sold by scammers on the dark web who then see you as fresh meat and prey on you even more. This is why some receive 40+ scam calls everyday while others get 0 to 2 calls per day. If you provide your personal and financial data to a phone scammer, lured by fake 80%-discounted drugs or scared by fake IRS officers, you receive far more phone scams and identity theft can take years to repair. Most unsolicited calls are scams, often with an Indian accent. No other country is infested with pandemics of sweatshops filled with criminals who belong to the lowest India caste and many are thieves and rapists who were serving jail time but released early due to prison overcrowding. India scammers shout profanities at you. Just laugh at their abusive language. Google "Hindi swear words" and memorize some favorites, e.g. call him "Rundi Ka Bacha" (son of whore) or call her "Rundi Ki Bachi" (daughter of whore). Scammers ignore the National Do-Not-Call Registry and asking scammers to stop calling is useless. You do these scammers a favor by quickly hanging up. But you ruin their scams when you slowly drag them along on the phone call, always give them fake personal and credit card data (16 random digits starting with 4 for Visa, 5 for MasterCard), ask them to speak louder and repeat what they said to waste their time and energy.

Fake computer technical support scam by madarchod criminals phoning from India, sometimes spoofing the actual Caller ID name/number that belongs to Microsoft, Dell, or HP. This is a fake Microsoft, Dell, HP, or computer support scam by criminals phoning from India. The scam may begin with a pre-recorded robotic person speaking English, often with bad grammar, that is generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of this India scam, but then you talk to the India scammer. The pre-recorded message tells you either that your software or Windows license is expiring, they are receiving alerts from your computer showing errors, that they are Microsoft Help Center and they noticed someone is trying to steal your identity, or your firewall security has been breached and they noticed suspicious activity on your computer, or they received notice of a hacking attempt on your computer, or that your Windows license will be deactivated within 48 hours as your IP address has been compromised from several countries. Unless you recently contacted HP, Dell, or Microsoft about a very specific problem, ALL unsolicited phone calls that you receive from Microsoft, HP Support, or Dell Support are scams that either say your computer has a problem that requires you giving them your credit card, or that your computer has a virus and they will tell you to use a browser to visit a ultraviewer.net, cbttr.com, gotoassist.com, or fastsupport.com website and enter a code that lets the scammer take control of your computer and then they install their own real ransomware virus that freezes your computer and these scammers then force you to give them your credit card number. I played with this India scammer for about 30 minutes, pretending that I was a total computer novice and therefore a gullible victim for him. The scammer kept trying to instruct me to use a browser to access a website that would allow the scammer to remotely access my computer and he started by telling me to press the "Windows" key, and I kept telling him there was no "Windows" key on my keyboard. That ate up 10 minutes of his time alone while I was cutting vegetables in the kitchen and I was not even in front of a computer lol. After the scammer gave up on instructing me to press the "Windows" key, I wasted another 20 minutes of his time by pretending that I did not know how to open up a browser and how to use a browser lol. I tensed my vocal cords so I sounded old and talked very slow and I kept asking him to repeat what he said and to talk louder, and I kept acting until he hung up totally frustrated lol. More than 95% of North America phone scams come from India scammers who operate hundreds of fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day such as posing as a fake pharmacy; fake Social Security officer saying your benefits are suspended; IRS officer collecting on fake unpaid back taxes; bill collector threatening you for fake unpaid debts; fake bank, financial, or Fedex/UPS/DHL scams; pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty, student loan forgiveness, credit card and debt consolidation services; posing as Amazon to falsely say an unauthorized purchase was made to your credit card or your Prime membership was auto-debited from your bank; posing as Microsoft/Dell/HP/Apple to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem or virus on your computer; fake "we are refunding your money" or "your account has been auto-debited" scams; fake Google/Alexa listing and work-from-home scams; posing as an electric utility or Verizon/AT&T/Comcast to say your service is suspended; fake solar panel and home purchase offers; fake fundraisers asking for donations; fake political and lifestyle phone surveys; and the scammers try to steal your credit card, bank account/routing number, Social Security number, and personal information.
