Caller Name: Indian Scammers faking Apple Support line

Auto Message: 'Your cloud account has been breached. Press 1 to get connected to Apple Support'. Sorry, I don't use an iPhone, and doesn't own a MAC. Why ? Who is calling me. I tried the '1' option. A mumble jumble of noisy talking heard in background. The foreign accent I heard, was described as Indian Hindi talking in background. India is the hub of online activities targeting our Finances. Lots of Fraud, Lots of Scams. Even the Software projects outsourced are bid upon by no-name one room operation companies, that purport to be 900 employees multi-campus Software Giants.

Caller Name: Scammers spoofing Apple Support line

called my number. Automated message saying 'Your cloud account has been breached. Press 1 to get connected to Apple Support'. Sorry, I don't use an iPhone, and doesn't own a MAC. Why ? Who is calling me. I tried the '1' option. A mumble jumble of noisy talking heard in background, with some Spanish. Sounded like a South American operation. Definitely not Apple Support.

Caller Name: Indian scam scum faking Caller ID as Apple!

Caller probably did not realize his speaker was left on while he conversed with others in a noisy boiler room, speaking what sounded like Hindi, before he finally spoke to me a minute later. Spoke with a thick accent, could barely understand him. It was comical to hear him say "This is John Wilson with Apple Support", with his horrendous English pronunciation that would have been slightly more convincing if he said he was "John Patel". These India scammers are relentless! I read a few days ago that India is now the new COVID-19 epicenter for Coronavirus infections, so their imploding economy is triggering huge tsunamis of phone scammers working in germy phone rooms trying to steal your money! That explains why I am noticing far more Indians phoning me with every kind of scam right now! Every week, they pretend to be just about everyone except my father lol. And these callers are all ready to drop the f-bomb if you politely tell them to stop calling!

Scam

Fake "your Apple ID and your iCloud account has been breached" scam by madarchod criminals phoning from India where the Caller ID number may spoof an actual valid Apple phone number This is a fake Apple scam by criminals robo-dialing from India. The scam begins 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 who pretends to be from Apple Support and tells you either that your IP address and iCloud account were accessed from different overseas locations, or they found some suspicious activities found on your Apple iCloud account, or that your Apple ID and iCloud account has been breached. This is a scam lure to get you to respond to the scam and then you talk to an Indian scammer who pretends to be Apple Support and first asks you a few questions such as where you have used your computer and whether you shared your iCloud login with other people, just to sound like authentic Apple support, and then he tells you that he needs your Apple iCloud user name and password and credit card number or bank account/routing number "for verification purposes" so they can make corrections to your account. Another version of this Apple scam involves the fake Apple scammer telling you to visit a website or download a file that allows the scammer to gain access to your computer, he instructs you to reset your Apple login, and since the scammer can now see your computer desktop, he can see what you are resetting for your Apple password and he steals it. Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Dell, and others will never phone you like this with an automated security alert, ask for your credit card or bank account number in any way, or ask you to visit an unknown website! I toyed with this scammer for more than 20 minutes, feeding him totally fake information, before the toilet scum yelled profanities at me while I could not stop laughing. 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 and saying your account has been hacked 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 one 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 phone room 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.

Computer Security Scam
Caller Name: Apple

I was told that my ISP was used in Korea or Japan to access a website that promoted child pornography. I was told that he needs to take remote access of my computer to fix the issue. I tried to explain to him that I will go in and change my ISP on my Wi-Fi and change Apple ID information because they said that that was compromised as well. He said that would not fix the problem. And he tried to have me go in and change my privacy and security settings and accessibility settings to allow him to record my screen when he gains access to my computer. And each time I asked him to explain how can I prevent this from happening in the future he said that he needs access to my computer first. We went back-and-forth for about 20 minutes. He said he’s gonna transfer me to his senior technician, he clearly just got back on the phone and started talking to me again. And when I called him out on that he said OK I hope the other tickets came back. He hung up the phone and come back for a different number. It was ridiculous...I reported it to actual apple support personnel.
