Scam

Fake Microsoft computer technical support scam call by madarchod criminals phoning from India This is a fake Microsoft computer support scam by criminals phoning from India and spoofing fake U.S. area code phone numbers. The scam may begin with a pre-recorded stiff robotic person speaking English that is generated using text-to-speech translation software to disguise the origin of this India scam, but then you actually talk to the East Indian scammer. The pre-recorded message tells you that "this call is from Microsoft security help center. We encounter a serious issue coming out of your computer it seems to be someone is trying to hijack your identity and try to steal your Social Security number and personal information. If it's not fixed right away, then your computer will become obsolete and all of your credential information may be compromised. If you are the one who is using Microsoft Windows in your computer, then please press 1 now to speak with security team now." This scam bait message is designed to lure you to respond back. Unless you previously 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 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. I played with this East Indian 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. 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 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 often 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". 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, 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. 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. If the scam sounds very authentic, ask the scammer for their verifiable company name, street address, and a callback number, 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.
