Here we go with this week’s most wanted: a PC Doctor from Washington, a bank details phishing company who apparently gives out green cards for 500 $ and somebody who introduced herself as AmVets. Here they are:
This week’s number 1 is a PC doctor number – one of the most recent scam methods that combines phone and computer spam and scam. As we already reported in our blog, the callers claim to call on behalf of Microsoft or an anti-virus programme company and explain that they will now direct you to delete the virus on your computer with the help of a bogus anti-virus software that you should download for a fee. It is quite an old story, though it still seems to be active, so beware!
For the number on rank 2: no news, just an increasing number of search requests: 1095
And last, but not least, user annoyed reported:
Woman asked for me by name and claimed she was from AmVets. I told her she had called my office number and she responded “well this is the number they gave me” I told her I didn’t know who “they” were but not to call me at my office any longer. Then I blocked her number on our office phone system.
So, do not let them spam the rest of your week!
