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.

If you know the exact name, address, and crimes of criminals, you report it to law enforcement and you do not just post their home address all over discussion forums and social media. This "Marty/Matt" nutcase is obviously the pathetic "stalker" that he talks about and he keeps posting false information and hoping that you will do his stalking of this Cannon person for him. This stalker of the Cannon person is as bad as these other phone scammers and he is using RoboKiller as his personal online slander tool smh.)

Computer Security Scam
Caller Name: India scammer pretending to be Apple's security team

This is a fake Apple security scam by criminals phoning from India and spoofing fake U.S. area code phone numbers. The scam involves telling you that your Apple account has been hacked and they need your credit card number for verification lol. Unless you previously contacted Apple, HP, Dell, or Microsoft about a very specific problem, **ALL** unsolicited phone calls that you receive from Apple, "HP Support", "Dell Support", or "Microsoft Support" are SCAMS that either say your computer has a problem that requires you giving them your credit card, or your computer has a virus and they will tell you to use a browser to visit a cbttr.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 they then force you to give them your credit card number so they can charge thousands of dollars on your credit card. This is a fake "you have a refund coming" scam by criminals robo-dialing from India. The scam involves telling you that the company is closing down or there was an error in a previous transaction and they need your credit card number so they can apply a refund or credit back to your credit card. But as soon as you give them your credit card number, they charge thousands of dollars to it. And since all the Caller ID phone numbers they use are either fake numbers or rotated using disposable VoIP numbers, you cannot phone them back after noticing that your credit card had no credit refund but was actually charged thousands of dollars. More than 99% 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 IRS officers collecting on "unpaid back taxes", pretending to offer fake health insurance or Social Security services, car warranty and credit card consolidation services, posing as Microsoft or HP to say that your services need 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. The Caller ID phone number is very easy to spoof to create any fake Caller ID number display. Some scammers also try to gain your trust by looking up the name associated with a phone number and asking for a person by name when they call. I love to toy with these scammers and keep them on the phone for over an hour by pretending to be interested in their scam. You do these scammers a favor by yelling at them and quickly hanging up. But you ruin their scams by dragging them along on the phone call and giving them fake credit card numbers and personal information. It really is very simple and easy to avoid getting scammed by phone and email - never trust any unsolicited call because they are always scams, and most of the scam calls originate from India. No other foreign country has huge organized groups of phone scammers.
