Scam

Fake Dish Network scam by madarchod criminals phoning from India and Caller ID-spoofing Dish Network's real number of 800-333-3474 This is a fake Dish Network (or AT&T DirecTV or Comcast) scam by criminals robo-dialing from India, trying to steal your credit card, Social Security number, and personal identity information. The scammer pretends to be from Dish Network and either tells you that your television or Internet service will be suspended due to unpaid fees, or that Dish/AT&T/Comcast is offering special sales promotions, or that they are offering a service upgrade for a small fee. The fake promotion usually offers a special low rate for a two-year subscription, but you have to pre-pay $200 to $500 for the first two to six months in advance, and then the scammer asks for your credit card number. Some scammers also ask for your SSN "for verification purposes". Or the scammer says your service is going to be suspended for some fake unpaid amount and again asks for your credit card number. 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.

Scam

Fake pharmacy scam call by criminals phoning from India to steal credit card numbers All these fake "U.S. Pharmacy", "Canadian Pharmacy", and "Pharmacy Network" scams are from criminals robo-dialing from India using different fake Caller ID or disposable VoIP phone numbers every day to steal credit card numbers. The scammer sometimes begins the call by saying your name to try to gain your trust. It is easy to acquire huge phone database listings of millions of names associated with phone numbers and addresses. If you are a "lucky" scam victim, you receive nothing and the scammers disappear with hundreds or thousands of dollars of your money. If you are an unlucky scam victim, you actually receive some useless pills or capsules that are just dirt mixed with flour or starch made in filthy wood sheds, and these fake unregulated India drugs are often tainted with toxic contaminants that destroy your liver and kidneys. These fake drug scams have been going on for centuries long before phones were invented. You are a fool if you think you can buy cheap authentic drugs from scammers who constantly change to different phone numbers every day after illegally charging credit cards for thousands of dollars. Many of these fake pharmacy scammers also sell your credit card and personal name and address information on the dark web for more profits. These scams often prey on men more because men are less likely to report that they were scammed out of thousands of dollars after trying to buy $400 of fake Viagra or fake painkillers. More than 95% of all North America phone scams originate from crowded phone rooms in India that run numerous fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day ranging from fake pharmacies to posing as fake Social Security or IRS officers collecting on "unpaid back taxes", fake bill collectors threatening you for overdue bills, pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty, and debt and 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, falsely stating that they installed ransomware virus on your computer and you need to pay them money, etc, and the scammers try to obtain your credit card 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 software to disguise the origin of their India phone room, but then you end up talking to an East Indian scammer when you take the bait and respond to the pre-recorded message. Scammers often either use disposable VoIP phone numbers or they spoof fake Caller ID phone numbers. Anyone, including you, can use telecom software or a third-party service to phone with fake Caller ID numbers. India scammers often spoof fake toll-free Caller ID numbers that begin with "8". 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 to use up more of their energy, 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 purposes. Never trust any unsolicited call because they are mostly scammers, usually with a slight or strong 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.
