(02) 6100 4299 Canberra number gets re routed and responder claims to be in CA, USA
Exactly the same MO as below. I've isolated and had a look at the shortcuts/programs loaded (the ones I can identify) and they dont appear to be any kind of security programs
Reading the messages here - This is most definitely a scam, go and watch the vids on youtube. DO NOT talk to these people.These companies will NEVER call you. This number also scammed my mother just yesterday. The same M.O. in that a popup came on her computer. She called but no-one answered and they called her back. They then accessed her computer remotely and have attempted to charge $400. Notify your banks immediately as well as completely wiping your computer. Be sure to change all internet banking passwords but on a different device. Report to Microsoft and also your banks and relative authorities as a scam. Smart Net Store LLC do not operate a legitimate company in Australia. Caller: I spoke to an Andy and then an Oscar called back
claiming to be Microsoft tech help - mentioned SmartNet - a Trojan Spyware almost consumed my PC - I was taken in. I don't think they are legitimate. I will have an IT guy check and go over my PC just to be on the safe side. ALSO be aware of a "Canberra" number (02) 6145 2611 - definitely suspicious.
computer lockup message advises to call (07) 4515 4087 (legit number but is spoofed and diverts). The "IT Tech" who answers (purporting to be from Smart Net Store LLC) tells you they are support for Microsoft and Apple and that the number is advice inbuilt into Microsoft Defender (crap) then confirms the PC has a virus, all very convincing to an elderly person. They go through a lengthy process of "removing" the virus and recommend Webroot Secure Anywhere be installed and bill you about AU$500. Strangely the Tech support number 1800 959 248 is answered ( claim to be based in california but a strong asia minor accent) and they responded to my enquiries for about 15 minutes, most unlike a scammer Have called me saying it's Analytiq-IT-Solutions telling me my computer has been hacked. Don't know if it's for real.
