Email Address Scammers Used: (Order Invoice) [email protected]

The email says there’s a charge to auto-renew for another year of tech support from Geek Squad. You call an 800 number on the email to dispute/cancel the charge. The person who answers claims to get the refund they need to take control of your computer with an app called Quick Assist They claim they need to make sure your computer doesn’t have any viruses before they begin. They then instruct you to go to a form and complete your name, address, and name of your bank (which if I paid by a card they wouldn’t need that to do a refund.). There’s also a lot of background noise on the phone, which you typically don’t hear when speaking to a real customer service agent and they have zero customer service skills!

The 1 year membership will be automatically renewed for more information and cancelling call the 1330-667-5539 number. When I called, they said I needed to fill out a form to cancel. Scam.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

I called up the 800 number on the email saying I had renewed my contract w Geek Squad (never had a contract w them). A man answered with an accent ‘hello?’ Me: ‘is this geek squad?’ ‘Oh yes it is.’ Me: I’ve got an email that says I have a renewal contract of $289.00, I’ve never ordered Geek squad. Him: we will be happy to cancel but you will need to fill out a cancellation form. What address shall we send it to? When pressed he did not seem to have any info on me except my phone number so I gave no info to him and told him I would be contacting ScamPulse.com

Type of a scam Tech Support

I was contacted with a notification that my membership in Geek Squad had been renewed. I was instructed to call the listed number with questions or to cancel. I called and was instructed to download Team Viewer and fill out a form with personal and banking information in order to get a refund. I was then asked to log into my bank account to confirm my refund. At this point I refused and the scammer threatened to freeze my computer and wipe out all of my data if I did not comply. I still refused and hung up and turned off my computer. The scammer rang back twice to try to complete the scam. That was two days ago and I have not suffered any loss yet but the scammer got my name, address, birth date, social security number and bank account number. The scammer used the Better Business Bureau and Geek Squad logos in part of their documentation.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

Scammer emailed me today, July 27,2021 and said that I will automatically be charged $399 on the next day of July 28,202.

The email included the phone number if I wish to call to cancel. I looked up the company phone number of Geek Squad and it didn’t match. I immediately looked up on the ScamPulse.com website about Geek Squad scams and saw that this email was verbatim the scam.

They sent email telling me my subscription auto-renewed, and to cancel it I had to call their 1-800 number. I do not have a subscription with them, so it would not be renewing.

Recieved an email with a confirmation number from Geek squad saying I purchased computer protection in the amount of $197 plus $5 service tax and it also stated I was enrolled in auto renewal. Contacted someone that speaks broken English and a kid screaming in the background. Told him I didn’t sign up for a damn thing for Geek squad. So he asked if I wanted to cancel! Of course I said cancel and he said ok I’ll do it and hung up.

Type of a scam Tech Support

I received an email from the Billing Team for Geek Squad (appeared to be) stating that my annual renewal was processing today. I called the number and a rep proceeded to take me through this cancellation process. I was asked to download TeamViewer which I thought was odd. Then he had me open this request form and add some generic information there. He was adamant about not being able to refund back to the credit or debit card. That's when everything went sideways and I became very uncomfortable because I didn't understand what was happening. He then said a link would be sent to my bank and I would have to open it. My bank is small and doesn't send messages through the account online. After no message, he quickly said there would be no charge and ended the call. I called back and got a different rep and I formed them that I would be reporting them as a scam. He said "and what are they going to do? What are you going to do? Nothing but lick my *****!".

Type of a scam Phishing

I received an e-mail informing me that my subscription was being automatically renewed for $249.99. I did buy a tv from Best Buy this summer, but I didn’t remember buying any service contracts. By checking online for the possibility of a Geek Squad scam, I found this site and that assured me it is a scam.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

The scam was an invoice with the heading of Geek Squad sent to me by email with the message "thank you for ordering product with us", and the invoice listed order No: ******************* The invoice listed Defender Firewall and was for $468.75 I called Discover ID Protection that I have and they told me phone number was ******************** and gave me a correct number which I will not list or call. I've received 2 invoices like this in about 6 months. I did not make this order and as far as I know the firewall isn't compatible with my type of computer. I don't want anything to do with Geek Squad and will not make contact or acknowledge them.

I received an email thanking me for renewing my service contract with Geek Squad. Since I have never had a contract, I was immediately suspicious. My concern increased when the email explained that my account would be charged over $400. No account exists. Please see the email as follows:
