Scam

Fake "your Apple ID and your iCloud account has been breached" scam call 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 with very 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 and tells you that "them up from Apple support just to alert you that your Apple ID and your iCloud account has been breached. We have found some suspicious activities found on your Apple iCloud account that your Apple iCloud account has been tried to log in several times. If those attempts were not made by you, please contact Apple support to stop unauthorized activities on your Apple iCloud account. Press 1 to connect Apple Support executive and press 2 to listen this message again. Thank you to listen this message." (This transcript is exactly verbatim with all the bad grammar that the India scammer typed into their speech synthesis software lol) This is a scam lure to get you to respond to the scam and then you talk to an East Indian scammer who 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 and 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's 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 played with these scammers for more than 20 minutes, feeding them totally fake information, before the toilet scum yelled profanities at me while I could not stop laughing. More than 95% of all North America phone scams originate from crowded phone rooms in India that rotate through numerous different fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day such as pretending to be a fake pharmacy, posing as fake Social Security officers saying your benefits are suspended or fake IRS officers collecting on fake unpaid back taxes or fake bill collectors threatening you for fake unpaid debts, pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty, and debt, student loan forgiveness, credit card consolidation services, posing as Amazon to falsely say that an unauthorized purchase was made to your account or that your Prime membership was auto-debited from your credit card or bank account, posing as Microsoft or HP to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem with your computer, fake "we are refunding your money" or "your account has been auto-debited" scams, pretending to be DHL, UPS, or a bank, falsely stating that they installed ransomware virus on your computer and you need to pay them money, etc, and the scammers try to steal your credit card, bank account and routing number, or Social Security number and personal information. Some scammers try to gain your trust by looking up the name associated with your phone number and asking for you by name when they call. Many India scammers now phone you with an initial pre-recorded robotic person 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 East Indian scammer when you take the bait and respond to the pre-recorded message. Scammers always either use disposable VoIP phone numbers (e.g. MagicJack devices) or they spoof fake Caller ID phone numbers. Anyone, including you, can use telecom software or a third-party service to phone using fake names and phone numbers that show up on Caller ID. India scammers often spoof fake toll-free Caller ID numbers that begin with "8". The Caller ID name and number is often useless with scam calls unless the scam setup asks you to phone them back and the Caller ID area code is almost never the area from which the scam call actually originated since many scams use fake area codes from across the U.S. and Canada, and also purposely faked foreign country Caller ID numbers (e.g. fake women crying "help me" emergency scams often use fake Mexico and Middle Eastern Caller ID numbers). Some India scammers also spoof the actual real phone numbers of businesses such as Apple, Verizon, and U.S. banks so when you phone the number back, you realize that you were scammed from the spoofed Caller ID number of the actual business. What is the best way to avoid being scammed by a phone call? Never trust any unsolicited caller or anyone who phones you with any kind of sales offer (more than 90% of unsolicited sales calls are scams so your odds of saving money are poor), any kind of legal or arrest threats, any claims of suspicious activity on an account, any claims of refunds or auto-renewed/auto-debited accounts, and any pre-recorded messages. Any unsolicited caller with a foreign accent (usually East Indian) should immediately be treated as a scam until proven otherwise. India scammers do not care about the U.S. National Do-Not-Call Registry and asking scammers to stop calling has no effect. I love to play with these scammers and keep them on the phone by pretending to be interested in their scam because many scam victims are the senile elderly. You do these scammers a favor by yelling at them and immediately hanging up. But you ruin their scams by slowly dragging them along on the phone call, calling them back if their phone number can be phoned, pretending to be interested in their product or service, pretending that you are worried when they threaten you, always giving them fake credit card numbers and fake personal information, asking them to speak louder and to repeat what they said to use up more of their energy, pretending to innocently ask the scum why he is shouting profanities at me, etc. The best defense against phone scammers is a good offense by not quickly hanging up the phone, but instead toying with them for at least 10 or 20 minutes to use up more of their time and energy so they have less time to deceive an elderly victim. Never give an unknown caller your credit card number or Social Security number. Companies who already have your information may ask for the last four digits for verification. Some India scammers ask for your bank account and routing number or ask you to wire transfer them a payment, giving a fake explanation that they cannot accept a credit card or personal check. This is an instant scammer alert because scammers can withdraw money if they know your bank account and routing number (e.g. counterfeit cashed checks) and illegal wire transfers are far less traceable than unauthorized credit card charges. India scammers may threaten to have you arrested, but the IRS, Social Security Administration, and debt collectors cannot threaten to arrest or sue you on the phone; they are required to send you paper notices by registered mail. Local law enforcement also will never phone you and say that officers are coming to arrest you (many India extortions threaten to send officers); if the police really want to arrest you, they just show up with a warrant without phoning first. Some India scammers ask you to use your browser to visit a website that allows the scammer to directly access and control your computer and then they can install a ransomware virus to extort money from you, or they ask you to download a virus file to your computer. If the scam sounds very authentic, ask the scammer for their verifiable company name, street address, and a callback number that can be searched and matched to the company name and address, which all real businesses will provide. Every East Indian scammer will immediately fail this test since they all use spoofed fake Caller ID numbers or VoIP numbers that they quickly dispose of. Never trust any unsolicited call because they are mostly scammers, usually with a slight or strong East Indian foreign accent, and most scam calls originate from India. No other foreign country is infested with numerous noisy sweatshops filled with phone scam criminals. These India scammers belong to the lowest India caste and many are thieves, robbers, and rapists who were serving jail sentences and released early due to prison overcrowding. Most India scammers are men, but many are women who also readily shout profanities. Just laugh at them. Google "Hindi swear words" and memorize some favorites to feed to these scammers.

The call is a message claiming to be from Apple.. and something about cloud. I have rec calls every 10 minutes. I have hit 1 the last 5 times, asking them not to call again. One time I even told them our President thinks his country is a shit hole country. ;-) I reminded them that we have lots of guns here in the US. The last time I asked why they keep calling me, and the reply was "because I want to bitch". Does that sound like Apple support to you...? Nope, it is a scam.

Here is an update for a scam report I filed about an hour ago for the number 301-786-0001 (people who did answer and speak with them at this number indicated it was a Social Security scam). Here's the new twist: This v.m. msg starts with the same "Please dial #2", just like the earlier "301" scam call--although that was a male voice and this is female (I presume they want people to be curious and call them back if you don't answer their call directly, so they leave a partial msg. What's new here is at the end, the voice smoothly says, "Or you may call us back at our toll-free number, 516-344-****." (I'm not going to enter the whole number in case someone is curious and tries to call them. 516 IS NOT A TOLL-FREE#, so if you want to play with these scumbags for some reason, DON'T CALL THEM BACK USING THE 516# THEY GIVE YOU. I'm entering this report here because it's pretty clear this is the same group of scammers, just using different numbers and recordings.

100% SCAM! Caller stated they were from Apple Support (caller ID even showed Applecare) & that my iCloud has been breached - that someone has stolen my identity & is using it in Germany and Russia. I told them I would call Apple on my own & the caller stated he was the only one who could help with my problem. Fact is, I DON'T OWN ANY APPLE DEVICES!! HA HA! TOTAL SCAM! When I told the caller the FBI was listening to our phone call & will track their location to do a raid, the caller promptly hung up. File a complaint with the FCC to shut them down.
