Beware of This Computer Scam! You Will Have Personal Information Stolen!
I got a call from

(456)-985-3896

I dont know where these people are located... they sound like they hail from India... but have more of a "bite" to their accent... their english is decent... anyways...

They called from "Windows Operating System" (that was their claim, I instantly knew this was a scam...)

He tells me I have a virus on my computer. They can tell this from my internet usage...

I proceeded to tell him in the best Dr.Acula accent I can muster:

"All my computers were monitored closely and they are 100% virus free."

He then asks me to turn my computer on and give him access to it and he will show me the viruses I dont know about...

I then told him I work in IT and know how to secure my systems... (I used to, not anymore, he didnt know that)

he then begins this panic like mumbling:
"oh sir, yes sir, uhhhhh, yes I... oh... As you wish sir."

I was nice and said

"Thank you for your scam attempt, may you rot in Hell" and I hung up...

Well I have two phone lines... a few minutes later I get a call on the 2nd phone from the same people...

Its "Mike" from 'Windows Operating System, a free service offered for users of windows' jerkit

Once more in my best Dr.Acula accent I told "Mike" that I just received a call from them... and I was on to their lil scam...

He was like... "uhhh no this is no scam... it is a free service, blah blah"

I told them i didnt want them to have access to my computer to install malware that will mine my information...

Mike says "No, no, no no scam"

Acula says "Yes, yes, yes yes credit card stealing scammers... I will tell everyone I know about your little scam, Im onto you boy"

He told me "Good Luck with that" and hung up...



Well Mike... FUCK YOU, I'm a man of my word...

GLP if you get a call from that number or any asshole who wants control of your computer... DO NOT let those bastards have access to your computer!


alright a bit of information about the area code (456)

Area code 456 is a non-geographic area code used to route inbound calls from locations outside the North American Numbering Plan Area to specific carriers for carrier-specific services.
 Quoting: Wikipedia: [link to en.wikipedia.org]


So yes it is a foreign scam outfit...

I googled the number and found some comments that people left on another site that confirms this is a scam...

So once again "Mike" you scamming bastard...
thanks for the wishes of 'Good-Luck'... I have now successfully told everyone I know thumbs

oh I even used the 4 leaf clover looking thingy as my thread icon in honor of you... for 'Good Luck'

EDIT: some good advice from a member on how to report scams

Thanks for the heads up, OP. If you haven't already, I would suggest submitting a complaint report to the FTC as well.
They are currently in the process of investigating various fraud groups at moment.

Submit your report here:
[link to www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov (secure)]
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26006802


More info for you, OP (and anyone else who may be a target/victim of fraud). You can also report fraud at your State Attorney Generals office (some states have online filing).

After a quick search I found this website with basic contact info per state, or you could just search your state office yourself.

lol

i've recieved all sorts of scam calls in the past.

one of the funniest things to do is "Scream at ethel" in your best southern accent... which by default I have lol

"Now you hold on a damned second, this here womern has gone and dragged the goat inside..."

Then scream

"Ethel, dad gummit hell tar. I done told you 5 times not to let that damned goat eat from my dinner plate, git dat goat off the kitchen table"

They usually hang up fairly quick lol

or scream...

"Damnit billy git that rattle snake out of your brothers boot... I done told you if you are gonna play with rattlers keep it in the yard"

I wouldnt have even posted this thread... but I didnt want the "good luck" from Mike go to waste.

lol

cheers

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Bad Guy: "Good Luck"


Reminds me of this scene from the movie, "Taken",
when the good guy promises to destroy the evildoers.



Bryan: I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.


Marko: [after a long pause] Good luck.
