    DO NOT provide this company with any Netflix details - it is a scam and your credit card will be used for fraudulent transactions. This has just happened to my mother while she was on the phone to a Sam at 1 800 431 401. They claim to be Australia Help Centre - it is a scam!

    Scam call
    Australia
    1800 431 401 : Re-routed numbers to a nasty and sophisticated call centre based in India that pretends to be working as or for Microsoft support team.( Apple computers are an easy target). They are FAKE, FAKE, FAKE. Those scums are installing malwares and viruses from popups or with bundles software as Adobe Flash. More importantly, Adult sites are 98% to be found as their favourite way of passing their viruses. Your internet browser suddenly freeze and your computer is being frozen. Best way is to shut your computer down ( by pressing power button for 20-30 to seconds ...or, Press ESC continuously for 10-15 seconds ...or to make sure, unplug Your computer). Fear and stress will take over with messages saying that your computer has had a virus attack. Restart with a clean browser cache and a run of a antivirus if you have one. Talk to someone (to your local computer guy) if you are not reassured or still in distress.This is a free phone call number, that’s targeting Australian audience. Note that nothing has changed in your computer system but check if some extensions had been added to your browser.If you do a lot of surfing the net, always run Task Manager that can stop any further damage. Do not let those curry scumbags win.
    CALL YOUR BANK, CANCEL YOUR TRANSACTION.

    Only an Indian scammer would use the expression "much helpful". Th guys pedaling this scam are the ones leaving this positive feedback.

    Avoid these lying scammers.

    If you Google the term Netflix phone number Australia, one of the results is "Netflix Phone Number 1-800-431-401". Do *not* call this number because it is *not* Netflix! They will ask for personal details to verify your identity, as a legit helpdesk might do, and you may give it because it is you who called, but then direct you to a remote desktop application that has nothing to do with Netflix. Luckily I didn't go any further and contacted another Netflix number (1-800-875-462), which is legit. I then reported the other number to the Netflix rep, who appeared not to know about it.

    DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER! They very cleverly got me sucked-in and hacked my credit card 18th March 2021. Yes, during the call I should have recognised something wasn't right, but they are sooooo cleaver in fooling you they are "legit". My pc has to be cleaned, new cards and new internet banking customer numbes etc, etcr; our internet banking is understandably frozen until pc is cleaned. I was incredibly distressed (and still am) when I realised what was happening, he froze my pc and in seconds, all could do was watch multiple pages opening before my eyes as he proceeded to shop with my card . . . until I pulled the plugs out of the back of the pc! Lesson Learnt!

    Toll-free number 1800 431 401 found the best solution for fixing issues related to computer. I used this number to solve my problems related to the computer. Technicians who assist me are very soft spoken and understandable. Well, I got the response from their side in a couple of minutes. They are expert in providing the instant result to their customers with proper satisfaction and comfort. Additionally, I have got a concession on the actual price. I am very happy with the services which were rendered by toll-free number 1800 431 401. I will definitely go to the same next time. Thank you.

    Scam call
    Australia
    I received a call from a blocked number.

    An Indian person asked to talk to me mentioning my full name.

    He said that he received my details from Microsoft because my Windows Media Services were compromised and that they are assigned by Microsoft to Remotely Assist the infected customers to remove the malicious software from their PC.

    I asked what is the Computer ID that is having the problem and he took the time to give me letter by letter the following 32 digit ID referring to it as Microsoft Computer Licence Number:

    888DCA60FC0A11CF 8F0F00C04FD7D062

    I asked him for a phone number to call them when I check if their details are genuine and he happily gave me the following call centre number: 1800 431 401

    He also gave me their company name: Max PC Export.

    I asked him how would the problem be resolved and he said that they will connect to the PC and they will resolve it with a remote desktop connection.

    I told him that I will check these details and I will call their call centre for verification and proceed if everything is OK.

    He said thank you and we hang up.

    ================================================================================

    The communication was very persuasive and a user that is not very experienced could fall into their trap.

    ================================================================================

    1) After googling their Company Name I did not find anything about this company.

    2) After googling their phone number I found the above posts - but since the calling number was blocked his phone number is definitely another one.

    https://www.reverseaustralia.com/lookup/1800 431 401/

    3) After googling the Microsoft Computer Licence Number I found the following:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/i-received-a-call-from-someone-claiming-to-be/f446dc12-541a-4dc9-8324-eebf251c4c4f?auth=1

    So it a scam call.

    He called on a blocked number.but gave me the number to check the business is a real one and so I can call if I need anything. He had a strong Indian accent but had good communication skills.
    The caller had my name and said they did tech support for me previously. I did not remember them, also he did not know what type of system I have. He wanted to do a systems check, and I am assuming load a program to 'check' my system.
    I declined the offer for 2 reasons ether it
    1. is a malicious scam- or
    2. telemarketing trying to sell me something.
