In the last two days I have received about twenty one scam calls from Apple. The calls are from the same phone number is 844-569-5541. They do not leave a message on my home answering machine. The one time I answered it was a recording. They are calling from Apple and instructs you to press one to speak with a representative. I don't even have Apple. I did not press any numbers and hung up. The calls are very annoying.

Type of a scam Online Purchase

I called an Apple customer service, advertised online, to find out about a trade-in on older iPads for a new one. The service agent Peter told me only 2 of them had value and asked if I had an apple gift card to purchase the new iPad. I went to Safeway on Kapahulu Ave. in Honolulu, and they didn't have apple gift cards so in another call to Peter, he told me to purchase a white and yellow Ebay card. I bought two $200 and one $100 and gave him the three # on the gift cards equaling $500. He took the numbers and money off the three gift cards, then said they wouldn't work, Ebay was having trouble. I am not able to reach him, my money ($500) is gone off the gift cards and not being returned. Two numbers were called during the transaction, (410)349-7099 and (917)426-9922. Both numbers are busy today and no communication.

Type of a scam Phishing

Phishing scammers contacted me from Apple Care with the AppleCare real number 1800 275-2273. They said the my IP address has been compromised and that there were many attempts from logging in internationally from Russian and China from my iCloud account. They asked me to run a scan on my computer showing all of the hackers on my computer and showed Tiny bank malware on my account. They said there were 72 hackers on my IP address and that I would need to purchase gift cards in order to trick them to get the number of hackers down. Each gift card was $500. After 4 days I had purchased 70 gift cards totally $35,000 from my debit card, my credit card and another debit card as well as $2500 in cash. Each time I purchased gift cards in the amount of 10 cards, they would then run the scan on my computer showing me that the number of hackers went down. I believed them because they gave me Apple credentials and they even gave me an Apple ID to lookup online.

Caution: Auto-dial bot leaving a message on my land line stating something about my iCloud account having been compromised. The recording does NOT leave a call back number. You are supposed to press 1 to speak to a rep or 2 to disconnect. My phone's Caller ID shows call initiated from "Apple Corp" and that number *does* ring through. Apple has already set up an outgoing recording to say that you should disregard the call, that they would not contact you by phone about your iCloud account.

I received a robocall supposedly from Apple. The recording stated to not get on my I pad. Something is going on. Could get my personal information. . Then it stated press number one or call 855-929-0176. I did not press one or call the number back. My caller ID showed a different phone number 866-752-2993. I have an I Pad but I know this is not true. I am also on the Do Not Call Registry. I hung up and called my daughter. She said it is probably a scam.

Type of a scam Phishing

I received an email to an email address that is NOT associated with my apple account. It is clearly a scam and was routed to my junk folder, and I didn't click anything, etc. The subject was "Your account has been suspended and awaiting your immediate response". The email requested copies of my credit card, billing invoice or bank statement showing my home address, a copy of my photo id. It demanded the info within 24 hours or my account would be permanently closed. The email also had a button to "restore now" that I did not click and the email purported to be from "the Apple team".

Total money lost $250
Type of a scam Identity Theft

I received an email from Apple saying that someone had tried to use my apple id and had made a purchase of a game costing me $99. So I called Apple support, and when the lady said she would refund me the money she took me through a series of steps in order to refund me, telling me actually it was $250. She then said I'd have to go through Apple Pay to receive this refund. I did not understand Apple pay at that time. She stole $250 from me on top of lying to me.

The number I called claiming that they were Apple is: 844-872-5593

Please steer clear of this scammer!

I have been receiving calls on my home phone from Apple. They keep calling. One time I answered. Caller said they were with Apple. He said something was wrong with my computer. They called from 203-302-6691. I told him I take my computer in to have it services. I said don't call here anymore. He was very rude. He started to yell at me and used profanity. I hung up. They are calling me now. I thought it was a scam.

We got an email stating we would be getting a phone call from Apple as someone in Mexico was using our Apple account. He called, he is East Indian or Packistaneese, he sent and email with a box to fill in with a number he gave me and of course he was in (I am stupid)! He had an opening page that looks exactically like Apples opening page, there was chatter in the background like it was a business, he started using the computer and before I knew it he had opened an account with Walmart, Shop.com and god knows whom else! He asked for personal information which he seemed to have already (my email, my husbands email, credit cards and he seemed to be confirming these)! I mentioned he was asking an awful lot of personal info. and I asked to talk to his boss and he said okay then he comes back on the line and pretends to be "James":(I then hung up, closed all of the sited he had opened and shut down the computers. He charged $300.00 to Shop.Com and opened a Walmart account. We cancelled our credit cards, alerted our banks and notified all credit agencies. Our IT man was here all day yesterday fixing all passwords and resetting our computers back to Saturday the day before the hacker did his business! If you need any more information I canbe reached at (831) 333-9002. Jill McClean This information applies to both my husband and myself and our business
