Caller: Sam and Shaun the same guy
(02) 8355 7878 is the number he contacted me on pretending to be trend micro and gave me 1800 985 148 to contact him back on
Total scam. Initially got a call from (02) 9160 7360 and I let go through to message bank. A guy calling himself "Robert" with a thick Indian accent left a message saying my Norton security is showing threats and has been compromised and to call him back on this 1800 number asap to have it fixed.
Guy claimed norton was not working and tried to upsell it for 300, obvious scammer Caller: scammer called, named tony and/or Ricky Beh
they tried to scam me pretending they were from trend antivirus and it was about to expire. they sounded indian, so i looked up the phone number and boom! they were scammers
PCTECH24 are a legitimate company that have several toll free phone numbers. They are an Australian company with an ABN number but their techies work from India which is common these days. I have been using them for several years now. They do occasionally call trying to sell software but that is their business. All you have to do is say no to them like any sales person.
My dad got a pop up to say there is something wrong with his computer. He was told to call a number and a speak with Ricky beh. Ended up speaking to jack instead. It all felt extremely dodgy, took 40 mins for him to do nothing. I googled this number and up came this postings (thank you!!). Told him to hang up and shut down. He couldn’t understand why I did that when 18 months ago he paid them $600 for support ☹️☹️☹️ Poor dad got scammed already.
Caller: AVG ?
Something wrong with my Security account...couldn't understand all the message as accent involved.
Caller: Robin Hatt
Tied to sell me Windows 10 Firewall for #399 US as he said mine wasn't installed properly and it's never free. As it turns out Windows 10 Firewall is automatically installed on your computer. Never give these guys any money - they are scammers!
Also tried to sell me Defencebte for $48.95 as he said I needed a third party antivirus.
Scammer. Took a large some of money from a relative for doing nothing. BEWARE!
Numbers 1800 985 148 1800 244 918 Claiming to be a company PCTECH
Caller: Said it was norton
This is a scam. Said we needed to pay extra $278 usd for life long net work protection. We were loading norton anti virus protector and when we encountered a problem and submitted it the scammer Ricky Beh phoned within a minute and said he was from norton. But he wasn't. Very convincing.
Total scam...don't give any details!! Claimed to be calling re McAfee install last year...had details re an install made last year, not sure how they accessed that information! This is a Voice over Internet Protocol number and the VoIP provider is www.symbionetworks.com and you can check for a numbers VoIP provider here https://www.thenumberingsystem.com.au/#/number-register/search . I suggest we all call Symbio Networks each time we get a scam call from one of their VoIP customers and then maybe Symbio Networks will do something. Symbio Networks number is 1300 789 653. You must realize that Symbio Networks gets paid by the scammers that use their service and this is the reason Symbio Networks appear to be providing a safe haven to scammers. Caller: Scammers don’t answer
Pretend your computers norton is not working! If you challenge them - Sam or Alex- they usually hang up!
