Type of a scam Tech Support

Computer ransomware. Victim opened a virus-infected e-mail attachment which encrypted his computer files. Ransom message appeared with directions to buy 1.3 Bitcoins (approximately $500) and send them to Bitcoin address (unknown recipient). Buying Bitcoins required proof of ID, residency, picture of owner holding credit card and driver's license. Owner also needed to authorize credit card company to purchase bitcoins. After payment was received and processed by the cyber-kidnappers, a message appeared on victim's computer with de-crypting instructions. A de-crypting file was downloaded, key entered, and a copy of the decrypted files was created. A new hard drive was purchased, operating system installed, and the de-crypted files were copied and installed onto the new hard drive for the victim.

Type of a scam Credit Repair/Debt Relief

I got a call on my cell phone from (828) 442-4725 with a recording stating that all of my debt could be dissolved due to some type of "litigation". I knew right away that this was a scam, but continued on the line to speak with a person. Answering was a man who sounded Arabic. I asked him to take me off the call list, and he became angry and argued with me that he would not do that.

Type of a scam Family/Friend Emergency

My 87-year-old mother was telephoned on April 6, 2016 by a man claiming he was her grandson. She was startled, so she inadvertently said the grandson's name. Then the man asked for $2,000 saying that her grandson had broken his nose in a wreck. He asked for a credit card, but Mom was alert not to give a credit card on the phone. He then asked her to buy $2,000 in I-Tune cards and said he would call her back to get the card numbers. Because she doesn't drive, she called her son-in-law to get the check. At that point, he knew it was a scam and explained the scam to my mom. He stayed at her home until the man called back. He told the man he was the uncle and asked the man to call him by name. When the man could not call him by name, he hung up. Fortunately, Mom did not lose any money, but the grandparent scam is still going on.

The message did not ask for me by name. Returned the call and phone line was busy. The phone number was from New York (phone area code 347) and the federal IRS.

States he sent an auto warranty through the mail, which I never received. Besides that point, my wife has a 2008

Nissan Versa, so the warranty would be EXPIRED anyway. Like I told the guy that called, "We have a 2008 Nissan Versa, so THERE IS NO WARRANTY, stop calling here and wasting my damn time!" The number he called from is 845-767-8098 in Congers, NY.

They called my cell phone and said I was eligible for $100 gift card to Best Buy or some other stores I can't remember and the fee was $3.99 and they could take that from my Visa/Mastercard account.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I am reporting on behalf of my 90 year old father. He received a postcard in the mail stating in big bold red letters "Notice of Reward". It gave a claim #, expiration date and amount of $100 to be used at WalMart, Target and many more. It gave a deadline date of March 21, 2016. You were asked to call 1-866-569-3227. My father called, confirmed his personal information, name, address. They then convinced him to give them a credit card number. Unfortunately, he did.

I called and cancelled his credit card. I also called the number on the postcard and they refused to talk to me unless I gave them a claim # and confirmed information on the card.
