What is this scam? How do I determine if this is a scam?

Computer security scammers call about your broken, infected, and hacked computer. These scammers claim your computer is busted -- and only they can fix it. They'll ask for a huge payment for their services, and they may even keep charging you for a (completely bogus) monthly "security package." Sometimes, these computer security scammers will try to get remote access to your computer. Once they're in, they take your personal information, banking details, and whatever else they can grab. Computer security scammers love spoofing their numbers -- they will often appear to be calling from Microsoft or Apple! Be wary of anyone offering computer security services over the phone -- Apple and Microsoft will never call you out of the blue to troubleshoot a security problem.

Call was about subscription renewal to something. No idea what.

December 3, 2019

Scam
Caller Name: Fake "your computer services are renewing" scam call from India.

This is a fake "your subscription will be auto-renewed" scam by criminals robo-dialing from India. The scam involves telling you that your account was or will be auto-debited unless you respond. Then the East Indian scammer asks for your credit card number "for verification purposes". But as soon as you give them your credit card number, they will 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. This is a fake IRS officer, fake Social Security, or fake credit/loan services scam call by criminals phoning from India, threatening to sue you or arrest you for fake arrest warrants, unpaid back taxes, or fake unpaid credit debt. The call starts with a pre-recorded robotic female message, but then you are transferred to an East Indian scammer who tells you that your Social Security number has been used in a crime and they need your SSN and credit card for "verification purposes". The scam often tries to threaten and coerce you into driving to a bank to wire them thousands of dollars. These fake IRS, Social Security, and credit/loan scams either ask for your credit card number or want you to directly wire them money from a bank while they stay on the phone with you. Basically, it is an extortion phone call. The IRS and Social Security are actually required to mail you paper letters and they will never phone you like this, threaten to sue or arrest you, and demand immediate payment. 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", fake bill collectors threatening you for overdue bills, 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 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 also try to gain your trust by looking up the name associated with your phone number and asking for a person by name when they call. Many India scammers also phone you with an initial pre-recorded robotic female voice speaking English to disguise their foreign call center, but then your call gets transferred to an East Indian scammer with a thick accent. India scammers do not care about the U.S. National Do-Not-Call Registry and asking scammers not to call does not work. I love to toy 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 quickly hanging up. But you ruin their scams by slowly dragging them along on the phone call and giving them fake credit card numbers and personal information. Never trust any unsolicited call because they are mostly scams, and most scam calls originate from India. No other foreign country is infested with numerous noisy sweatshops filled with phone scam criminals.

Computer Security Scam
Caller Name: (855) 218-9298

Recording states that my "computer service agreement" has expired and that they have successfully renewed my agreement to the tune of $399.99. I don't have any computer service agreements. No name or business name is given during the call. It also states that I have 24 hours to cancel this by pressing "8". When pressing "8", a man with an India Accent answered. I told him I just got a call that said my Account was successfully charged for $399.99. He stated my agreement expired and it was automatically renewed for $399.99. I said OK, I will keep that. Thank you . . . then hung up.
