Scam contentsThis is regarding the payment of $200.00 I made to a Stephen McNeill on July 30. On that day I was on my computer and I was browsing and I came across a link that was obviously defective. I received a message that said to call MS Support at 1-844-476-0144 because my computer was hacked. I spoke to a Kevin Hunt (later on I found out this is a fake name). Anyway, if you need his number or want proof his number is 949-299-1796. Kevin Hunt did a thorough search on my computer and found "the problem". He told me to send $200.00 to him in cash.app. He told me to put the name Stephen McNeil in cash.app. As soon as I did that, my Simple bank said that it was sent. At that time it was in a pending stage. Later on I got a text from the cash.app stating that he received the money. Later on that day, I called lifelock and explained what happened. They told me that this was a scammer. They asked me if he sounded Indian and I said "yes". Lifelock took off the thing that they put on my computer. They advised me to call my bank and resolve the issue. I can send you a picture of the transaction if you need it. Thanks.

    Faire face aux arnaques au faux support d'assistance technique informatique :

    L’arnaque au faux support technique (Tech support scam en anglais) consiste à effrayer la victime, par SMS, téléphone, chat, courriel, ou par l’apparition d’un message qui bloque son ordinateur, lui indiquant un problème technique grave et un risque de perte de ses données ou de l’usage de son équipement afin de la pousser à contacter un prétendu support technique officiel (Microsoft, Apple, Google…), pour ensuite la convaincre de payer un pseudo-dépannage informatique et/ ou à acheter des logiciels inutiles, voire nuisibles. Si la victime refuse de payer, les criminels peuvent la menacer de détruire ses fichiers ou de divulguer ses informations personnelles.... Read more
