Type of a scam Tech Support
The following is a report on my being a victim of a tech support security scam which first occurred on Monday, June 27, 2022. After hitting a link on the internet, my computer froze with a scary visual and auditory signal. I called the number for support (888-238-1602, 888-630-7937). Talked to Geek Hub IT Security. I allowed them to have access to my computer. He then indicated that my IP address was being used by others who he could identify as those involved in child pornography. I panicked and agreed for him to fix my PC and wrote a check for services that was scanned and sent electronically. The next day I realized I was scammed based on several facts. There were no reviews on this company on the internet. Also, two friends who are computer literate said they it was a scam. One friend showed me a ScamPulse.com article describing a scam exactly like mine. I also learned that the programs that they claimed to install could have been handled by the software already installed on my Windows PC. I then stopped payment on the check and followed the advice of Microsoft on-line help on keeping my data safe. I then called the company back to cancel my service. I talked to someone in their billing department who bullied me and threatened me. I was then harassed with multiple phone calls to both me and my wife. The harassment stopped when I mentioned in an E-mail to them that I filed a formal report with the police department and will be reporting the scam to the BBB, Microsoft, and FTC, and if they wanted to talk further it would have to be with my lawyer. The harassment stopped. I then went to a local reputable computer repair company to take the proper steps to secure my equipment.
