Caller: Not sure
It was on a fake apple support website that said you had a virus and had to call this number to "unlock" your device
had big alert on my computer that I had a trojan attack and to call this number which I did. When he asked for permission to access my computer I hung up and called apple. Its a scam! Do not call them it is a scam Caller: Pop up on website
A really urgent message came up to call Apple Security but it seemed odd. Googled the suggested number and see it’s a scam
yes same here today Caller: no one
popup found with this number on it. Its a scam guys.
If you're unsure, email scam watch
Scam Caller: Scammer
Yes - the same low-life scam as reported above. This is a pop-up message complete with a pre-recorded message with an air of urgency suggesting your computer has been hacked and demanding you call this number to arrange its rectification. Yeah right! Scammers posing as people trying to help you overcome a scam.
Got alert msg saying my computer was infected and locked and to call this number to unlock it. I did and they wanted 199 US dollars to fix it. I told them I don't have the money, they then reduced the price to 149 US dollars! I said no and they weren't too happy. I turned my computer off for the rest of the day and it was working fine the next day. Pop up while downloading ebook, apple logo, very convincing so called number, they said technical support, I asked them to verify who they were, they wanted me to download an app to take control of Mac book, and I hung up. Caller: Scam Apple support says your computer is locked out call this number.
Scam Apple support says your computer is locked out call this number. They then asked to paid $299 USD to fix one device or $499 to fix all devices
Caller: Windows security warning
I was doing some "scammer fishing" and encountered this. All they say is "your computer is hacked and blocked and locked" and whatnot.
Computer pop up with scam Apple support number saying I have a trojan virus, and need to call to unlock computer. They are the virus!! Scam support business says you have a virus from a popup webpage
