This is a scam. This website http://anti-viruss.com/avg/Support-for-Avg.html is also a scam and related to both (02) 8355 7878 and 1800 462 940. Call them and waste their time same thing happened to me today its a Sydney number I know that and a land line so it must be operating out of a house im going to investigate this dirt bag someone claiming to be from trend micro i thought it was legit becasue i had clicked on web page asking for help on installing trend micro and asked for phone call so i gave them my product key he asked me for $200 i new i was bieng scammed so i said no and he hung up i contacted trend micro from number on package of product and they bocked the activation code and are sending new one scary stuff I received a call from them too 4 times i told him i didnt have time, he asked me for $499 to renew my norton, I let him access my computer which is what i am worried about, will this affect anything on the laptop? Got a call from this number saying that my norton security was expired. I dont have norton security. When I challanged him he hung up Got a call from this number saying my computer was hacked and would fix it for $300 Caller: “Mike” with an Indian accent
Similar to all other complaints about this scammer. His wicked aim is to access people’s computer and gather people’s identification to get money in a dirty way! This wicked guy should be prosecuted!
Caller: Robert from trend mirco
THIS IS A SCAM!!! I was trying to download trend micro security on my laptop.
It asked for my name email phone number and activation key. Put all that in and then came up with an error. I instantly received a phone call from “Robert” with a strong Indian accent. He proceeded to take over my computer and tell me I had multiple viruses and that I needed to pay $399 to get the right protection for my computer. I told him I didn’t have time and I would call back. Instead I called the number of trend micro on the back of the card and I was told that it was definitely a scam. They never call customers and DO NOT under any circumstances ask for credit card details.
Caller: Claimed to be from Trend Micro
Scary because they knew the activation code (genuine) i had bought from Harvey Norman, AND they were on the end of the phone number I rang from my computer screen when I tried activating the harvey norman activation code. High end scam. I was fooled, but blocked my credit card so they couldn't bill me $399 for installing "replacement" software to "fix" the problem with the activation code. I normally smell these rats a mile off, but even I got caught - principally because I rang the number on my laptop screen when I tried activating. Be careful people! Block this number and monitor your credit card charges!
Caller: Kevin the scambag peace of sh*t pretend he is support tech
How would trendmicro let this happen they should do something to hunt them and put in jail I was contacting the trendmicro about installation of purchase I brought from them unlucky the fake website I click on the fake was www.trendmicro.au/support.me which is almost same in the legit trendmicro then this peace of sh*t pretend he is tech supports so I let him acess my computer because I thought he is from trendmicro after the he claiming my computer got 24 virus from malware and he could fix if I brought a new purchase to them cost of $399.99 and asking for credit card and email f*ck him I hung up but stupid me I let him acess in my computer 🤦🏻♀️
I also had a same problem mine is worst because I let him to acess yo my computer 😭 Hi I have problem almost same as you I let him access did he copy information to u? Caller: Mike
Claims to be from Trend Micro. Says my security is not responding. Blocked the number on my mobile but he continues to ring home phone every couple of days.
the just tried it on me the mother f*ckers how do we track these sh*t c*nts down Caller: Kevin said he was from Norton re my antivirus software.
He wanted me to go and get my computer to see why I wasn't getting critical messages. I told him I wasn't going to do that sort of thing via a telephone call unless I had phoned them with a problem. He said that I had spoken to a number of their personnel in the past and I should reference the conversations and call him back. I told him I 'could' do that, but I won't and having looked up the number, I have now blocked it.
Same here Tony, was called about 1 hour ago after trying to install Trend into a new computer. S*** hit the fan when he wanted all linked computers on line too. Indian cow
Caller: Indian accent
Told me my Macafee security had security breaches on my email account and my Macafee has been disabled. Asked me to access my PC and when I told him that Macafee was still working on my phone (only email I use)and that I didn’t use a PC he hung up.Rang them back after finding this post and informed them I was going to report the phone call.
I received two multimedia messages for download but did not recognize the phone no. So looked up reverse australia website first. This website tells me the phone no is a scam plus is attached to two other websites. Thank you . They told me that my computer had been compromised via my Norton Anti Virus. they Quoted the names of my recent contacts with PC support and requested that I start up my computer for them as the had a copy of all my files for reinstallation.
I told the person with an Indian accent that I would contact PC Support for conformation.
They quoted my PC Support number and the names of two recent support officers that I had spoken to. He called from (02) 8355 7878.
