These people keep calling me asking me to renew my car warranty and if I wish to renew it I can send a payment - and today (which seems to be almost every they call me) is the last day to renew it before it expires.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

We received a phone call today on our cell phone. Since we did not recognize the number we did not answer. The phone displayed that the call came from 206-279-2654. They left a short voice mail message telling us that there are four serious allegations against us and that the cops will come and pick us up and that we should call 206-279-2654 immediately and they would tell us what to do. I tried dialing the number on our VOIP phone which does not identify us to the person being called and was not able to get their phone to ring. It looks like a sophisticated scam.

They get you to allow remote access to show you a "supposed" corrupt file on your computer and then take you through a process of buying Google play cards for the $100 charge to give you a link in an email to be able to down load a network security program so that hackers can not access you computer or network...if you do not follow their exact process they keep upping the price to be able to give you a refund of any moneys over the original $100 when you quote back to them what they said they lie and say no this is our policy and continually barage you with words to confuse you even further....feel so stupid for trusting that they were truthful and even allowing them to play me for $100 dollars let alone $400...if something is happening to your computer take it to *** ***, ***, or a ligitamate store that you have reprocussion capabilities...never trust anyone calling on the phone saying they are from microsoft

Texted my mother and other family members with the last four of my social security number saying I need to call immediately about allegations against me. They never contacted me personally. When I tries to call amd ask questions the lady said they had me under constant video surveillance, I laughed and she hung up. Concerned about how they're getting my social and family members numbers!

Received call and the person asked for Ms. Patricia. I said it was the wrong number. Another person then got on the line and said "Is this the wrong number?: I answered yes. I am now worried they will use this recorded "yes" to conduct fraudulent activity on my cell phone, bank accounts and credit cards or sign me up for unknown subscriptions or order merchandise.

A scammer hacked a family member's Facebook messenger account. Through the Facebook messenger exchange, I gave my phone number to the imposter (before realizing it was a scam). The imposter texted me from the phone number (919) 374-0219. I have since called my family member to confirm they were hacked. I am blocking the scammer's phone number and blocking messaging from this account on Facebook.

Type of a scam Credit Cards

Long story short the gentleman wanted to book a client of mine and his band for a wedding for his daughter. He asked to pay by credit card and then asked if what kind of card reader we had because Paypal and Apple scanners have stolen his information. I then asked him for his email address and for him to email me his daughters name contract signatory phone number and anything else having to do with the wedding. He wanted me to email him rather. Then he asked if we could then cover the event planners see with his credit card and then write a check to the event planner which presumably was him trying to get all of the money for the date. I told him that we would pass on the date and thank you for trying to scam us
