Type of a scam Phishing

I received an email from Jacob Shaw, Manger Trade Commission, using the BBB Logo and a fake BBB email stating that I was to get a refund for Tech Support that I used my Visa for services in the amount of $69.95. I called the number back and started asking questions. They wanted to get my credit card to refund the money. The thing is, I used a mastercard, not a visa so I thought it was fishing. I could not understand why the BBB would want money for a Tech issue, so figured it was a scam.

I received a telephone call on January 22 at 1:36 PM from a cell phone Georgia 478-258-9654 claiming to be from the BBB.org. They claimed that I had paid 199.99 in March for tech support from a company by the name of Iogee. The government had determined that the company was fraudulent and would have to return my money.

I had a questionable call and vague voicemail from this number stating she was Trisha Gardner, a message for the owner of the company asking to call back extension 888-455-7172 ext 410. I do not have a company and there is no actual information-which is suspicious.

A person called stating he was from the BBB.org (came up on my caller ID as "better bureau" - no caps) and asked me if anyone contacted me in the past year to repair my computer for $199.99. He claimed my email and computer were hacked, that my credit card was charged $199.99 and that people had stolen my identity and were getting loans in my name. I asked for his phone # ( he said it was 321 209 7163, but it came up on my caller ID just as 209-7162, with no area code). I immediately contact the BBB, which told me it was a scam, which is what I was expecting.

I received a call today that said they were from BBB.org and they knew I had been scammed by a business called Eversoft (they had a popup on my computer and were supposed to clean up the virus on my computer). They said they were in charge of distributing refunds for the victims of this business. They somehow accessed my bank account (probably using the info from the time I was scammed by Eversoft) and deposited money into my account. I was then instructed to go get some iTunes cards with that money. That's when I got a weird feeling about this and called BBB.

Type of a scam Tech Support

A man with a thick accent called and said he was from the BBB and was doing a refund for a computer. He tried to get the woman to get on her computer and assist her with navigating in order to get her refund. She said no because they called Columbus Day and the BBB was closed. He was very insistent on her getting on the computer but she refused and he eventually hung up. He gave her a computer license number 888dca60-fcoa-11cf-8f0f-00c04fd7d062 and when googled it came up as a computer number that is used in scams to hack personal computers by having the victim navigate and enter the code into their own computer giving them access.

This is the second day in a row that I have gotten this phone call from the same phone number. It says they are located in Richmond VA on our phone caller ID. They state their name (today was Mike Jones) calling from the BBB.org in regards to a refund you are due for some work done on your computer. Without seeming rude they can hardly speak English. I just hang up on them but I'm sure that this is not the way the BBB operates.

At 1:45 I received a phone call from John Baker with the BBB telling me I won some money through Readers Digest contest in 2009 and never claimed. So the BBB wants me to call NY phone #7185680874 and to ask for James Carson,son of Johnny Carson and give him my claim number 8944457302-ct and then they would automatically deposit the money in my bank account. I asked how much and he asked what my name was and I told him laughingly SCAM SCAM and hung up.
