Type of a scam Tech Support

I was streaming Project Runway from a random site i found from a google search. Shortly into the show my computer froze and i got a pop-up window blaring loud noises and urging me to call microsoft immediately at the number below. I talked to (a.k.a.) Brian Tyler. He assured me he was from Microsoft, showed me the company's very microsoft looking web page. Told me he could fix my computer and add a fire-wall for 194.00. I did it. He took remote access of my computer, unfroze it and installed a fire wall. I paid directly over hte phone giving him my checking routing and account numbers. He only took what we agreed on and my computer worked fine after that and no type of fraud had occured with any of my financial accounts so I had no reason to believe they weren't a legitimate company. About a year and a couple months later they called to tell me they had been receiving reports that someone from Jamaica was hacking into my IP and accessing my e-mail and yahoo was going to close my e-mail down in 5 days if I didn't do something about. He even showed me some bogus webpage about it. He then offered to sell me lifetime security on this comp and any future comps. I ever own that would fix the problem. He took me to some wal-mart ad that showed what they sold it for and offered it to me at a discount for 1200.00 dollars. I went ahead and did it. Gave him remote access a second time to my comp. The first time I gave him money, they were calling themselves the USA Help Desk. Now they had a new name of Web Utility Pros LLC. and he could no longer take checking info over the phone I needed to mail a check When I asked about the change he replied "well, times have changed". I did it. He held the check till I asked him to before cashing it. Everything was fine. Still no idea this wasn't a legitimate company until he called 4 months later. Said the same thing was wrong. Jamaica was hacking my IP and my e-mail was going to be shut down. Showed me the exact same bogus Yahoo alert. Took me to the same walmart page. I was like dude i already paid you for this. Your security must not be working because this is the exact same problem you assured me your security was for. Then he was like oh no this is different this is off-line security and he could sell it to me for a lifetime for 850.00. Anyway we kept going round and round in circles till finally I agreed to buy it and mail him a check. I new it this point there was something wrong. Especially when he told me if I wanted to use my credit card I could go to Walmart and purchase get gift cards for payment. Anyway, he hung up thinking I was going to mail him a check. I got on Microsoft's official website and found the community help desk. They told me it was a scammer. Change all my passwords, get my computer cleaned and reinstall software. Close my checking account. I moved fast before scammer knew I knew and got it all done. I actually just got a whole new computer. The guy still calls every couple days. I don't answer. There is lots of stuff on u-tube about it. Search Tech support scams there. It is satisfying to see some of our computer whiz's taking avenge on these guys for us. Made me feel a lot better!

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

8/21/2019 A person called John said I could get a refund on Windows security because they said it isn't working. But my Webroot was active. He said the refund was for $499.00 and they would put that into my bank account. I let him on my computer and completed a form. Somehow the form read $4999.00 and I needed to get gift cards to refund the company the extra money. The gift cards should be from Target, Best Buy etc. no VISA/MASTER/AMEX. I hung up the phone and turned off the computer. I called the bank and made an appointment for 9:00 AM to close my accounts.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

I had a gentleman reach out to me on Facebook marketplace about buying my boat. He told me to take my ad down and that he would be sending me $4000. My boat was $2500 and the rest was for the moving company to pick up the boat for him. For some reason this never set right with me so I investigated.I got lucky and checked thru the BBB website to see if there was anyone else who was scammed. I found the exact same examples so I messeged the buyer back to tell him that the deal was off.

Type of a scam Employment

I got offered a job as a temp work from home CSR until my location was done being built in Seymour. I got sent a check and I was told to cash the check. Once it was put into the account, I was then instructed to Venmo 2500 to someone named Francis Barinwa, Zelle 500 to someone named William Corsten, then I was told to purchase 500 in iTunes cards and 300 in steam cards(which I questioned Dai Morrison why I needed them and she said to put software on the computer). Once the check bounced at the end of the day I was short the 3999.99 I was sent. So I was told by Dai Morrison I was getting another check to cover my fees and the original amount. Apparently the first check was fraudulent but I didn’t know till I went in to deposit the check.

At the time there were no job scams at the time that centered around this employer and my first check went through at the time, so I didn’t think anything of it.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

Received invoice, did not order toner from this company. All our machines are either on contract, or toner is ordered from specific, vetted, companies.

Invoice was dated 3 years prior, we have never received any product from this company, nor any other attempts to collect. Looks like a legitimate, QuickBooks-generated invoice.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

I was contacted by phone, my job was contacted and my husband was contacted. I was told that if I did not comply with the collections and set up a payment today that I would be arrested. I was so upset, they knew my new address, my ss# and my cell phone. I set up a payment of $100.00 today and they had to have the balance in one week. After talking this over and searching online for more information on the company, I realized that I have been scammed. My husband and I both called over and over until finally we spoke with someone who says that they will refund the $100.00 (so far that has Not happened) and proceed with collections that could lead to my arrest. We have contacted our bank to stop any withdrawals from this company. Please review the letter and help others avoid this scam.

Type of a scam Phishing

I received a call on the phone. A recorded message said my social security number was at risk for more information press "1". I did. A woman came on the phone and asked my name and zip code, which I gave. She asked the last 4 digits of my social security number. I, than, asked her for the number where I could call the Social Security Investigations at. The call disconnected. I believe this was a phising scam. I recall hearing other people speaking to other callers in the background.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

On 8/22 at 3:45pm, a woman left a phone message. It was not a computerized voice. [Caller id showed the number as (905)579-5983 which is in Oshawa, ON, Canada] She said her name was Mikala Smith, her Agent Id #9744, and that she was calling regarding my student loans. "I need to discuss your payment options with some urgent changes that have taken effect recently so if you can call me back at (888)476-0218. I'm going to give you a reference # to have handy when you call back. It just makes it a lot easier. It is 00281...." She also mentioned that I needed to call back before the end of the day. I did not call her back.

On 8/22 at 6:02pm, I received another call from Canada [(416)653-2124 which is in Toronto, ON] As soon as my outgoing message started to play, the person hung up. I am assuming it has something to do with the call that I received from Oshawa, ON since I do not know anyone who lives in Toronto.

Type of a scam Employment

I responded to a data entry specialist position based out of Gilbert, AZ, on Indeed for an established company called *** *** *** for a remote position. I received a message on the Indeed message platform to email my email address to *** for more information. When I emailed, I received an email back from Kasey ***, the hiring Manager, stating I needed to download Google Hangouts and send a message to them so we could hold the interview over Google Hangouts on Aug 21.

On Aug 21 I got on Google Hangouts to conduct the interview and everything was pretty standard for an interview. I was asked to describe my previous experience, skills, knowledge, etc. When the interview was done I was told that the position was 1099, but I would get company benefits. I was also told that I had to buy all of this expensive equipment and I was only authorized to purchase directly from their vendor, but no worries as they would send me a check to pay for it. They advised I was to not take the check into the bank though, and I needed to deposit it via ATM instead. I was sent an offer letter along with a contract to sign and send back in order to complete my new hire information. I was also asked to send a copy of my Driver's License with the contract as well.

Instead I called the number listed on the website for *** *** *** and I spoke with the head of HR, Maureen ***. Maureen said that on Monday, Aug 19, a scam had popped up using the company's information for remote work positions, but they were not the ones posting the jobs and I was not the first person to reach out to her about this. *** *** *** is an actual company, but someone was impersonating them to attempt to scam people. I sent all of the correspondence I had to Maureen for her investigation with the Police.

Today, Aug 23, I received a check in the mail for $4,236.57 from a completely different company, *** ***, Inc. based out of Chicago, IL. The memo line just says "tools." I did not deposit the check and instead informed Maureen immediately so she could add it to the information she was taking to the police.
