I was on Facebook and clicked on a link that took me to US News, and then an annoying window popped up from Microsoft stating that my computer had been hacked. I had no control over my cursor so I called the number on the screen, the male told me that he needed to run some diagnostics he told me to grab a pen and paper and he started giving the letters "NETSTAT TCP..." then told me I have 11 hackers trying to get into my computer. This goes on for about five more minutes. Then he gives me his name "Michael Costa", Employer # ATS7215, and a Case ID# and secure line phone number (530)826-4685. Then he asked for the name of my financial institution, and that's when I hung up.

My wife was watching Netflix, and a popup appeared on her tv saying that her account has been hacked. She called the phone number as directed by the scam and was connected to someone who said she needed to contact her bank. She must have given them enough info to initiate a Zelle payment of approximately $499.

My computer froze and I got a verbal warning to call. I called and spoke to a man who said he was with Cleveland Tech. I gave him remote control of my computer because I thought he was with Norton. They took out $500, but my bank gave it back to me. Now they call all the time. I've called my phone company and they say keep blocking the numbers. I filed a police report. I am tired of these calls.

I received an email that $654 was being billed to me for antivirus software I didn't order. When I contacted the company by phone they started harassing me about needing their services.

- Fresh Meadows, NY, USA • Jan 09, 2024

Claimed I paid for a security service that I did not order. Email had NO company logo, but claimed it was a charge from McAfee. I am scared a form of Malware was in the email! When I called “customer service” at first the number was bisy & disconnected the call-then someone answered & when I said “scam” they IMMEDIATELY hung up the phone!

I opened a recipe on my laptop. There was a loud noise. The notice said trojan spyware had been installed on my laptop. It gave a number to call. I knew not to call that number.

I got on my cell phone and looked up Microsoft support. They said the warranty on my laptop had expired which it had. The transfered me to nerd support. I thought I was speaking with someone from Microsoft support so I trusted them. Nerd support charged me a one year service plan which I agreed to. They installed a computer protection plan. They said they cleared out all bad stuff and fragmented files. They said they got everything. A few days later they sent me a text saying there was more to clean out. In the meantime I researched the company and other people said they did the same thing to them. People said they let nerd support back into their computer and nerd support took out a lot more money. I quit responding to nerd support. I went to Best Buy and enrolled in their plan. I had them remove nerd support.
