Do Not Call 855-203-6080 - the Number is Being Used by Cybercriminals

The telephone number 855-203-6080 is currently being used by cybercriminals to trick Yahoo users into calling it. If potential victims call the same telephone number they will be asked for their email account credentials (usernames and passwords) and may also be asked for credit card and other sensitive information. And, once the cybercriminals have gotten their victims' account and personal information, they will use it to hijack their accounts and use them fraudulently.

855-203-6080

Yahoo users who have already received the phishing email messages, and who have followed the instructions in them, are asked to change their Yahoo account passwords immediately before their accounts are hijacked by cybercriminals and used fraudulently. And, if they gave out their credit card information, they asked to contact their bank for help. They should let their banks know that they were tricked by a phishing email and unknowingly gave their credit card information to cybercriminals.

    Toll free numbers cost a lot to own. If you want to fight back, create your own spam with something like "Free pizza when you register by calling ...." Be creative and let's put these suckers out of business.

    There is this what a Facebook user that warns a lot of Yahoo users having problems accessing their email accounts of what he calls a "QUITE OBVIOUS a SCAM on Facebook"
    and he says Facebook won't even do a thing about it..

    It is located on Facebook website at location of:

    hxxps://www.facebook.com/Yahoo-Customer-Care-1855-777-1707-Toll-Free-Helpline-1811610125794775/

    And these SCAMMERS have a toll-free number of:

    1-(855)777-1707 to Scam the USA and Canada desperate Yahoo users
    44-(808)143-3686 to Scam the UK and Ireland desperate Yahoo users
    51-(180)068-2529 to Scam the Australia and New Zealand desperate Yahoo users

    I've made a few reports to Facebook of "Report this page section" on Facebook..I click the "This is a Scam" and Facebook won't do anything about these ""Scam facebook pages"..

    Can you guys here of: "onlinethreatalerts.com" can do something about this issue that has been brought up on Facebook and the people running Facebook won't or will not do anything about it.

    Someone else had asked this question:
    "I wonder if Mark Zuckerberg is being paid under the table from these scammers for allowing their Scam Facebook pages to still being allowed on Facebook no matter how many report it as a crooked and criminal operation."

    QUESTION....

    I find the: "THIS IS QUITE OBVIOUS THIS A SCAM. AND THIS IS A SCAM FACEBOOK Page on the Facebook website...

    When I report this SCAM Facebook page to the management of Facebook and I tell them EXACTLY where this SCAM Facebook page is located on Facebook...
    End results...NOTHING!

    NO MATTER how many times(I lost count after reporting it 20 times) that I report it or other SCAM Facebook pages to Facebook management and tell them EXACTLY where it is located on the Facebook website.

    Facebook DOES NOT A thing about these SCAM Facebook pages. Does someone have to get killed and murdered and have the video of this crime posted on Facebook before the management of Facebook will take any action on these SCAMMERS using the Facebook website for their criminal schemes??

    Don't be fooled when a very well spoken person, who speaks perfect English with no accent answers the phone. Even Americans are in on pulling off this scam. They asked me to verify my information, and when I told them I sure, you give me the info and I will verify it, they refused.

    This number (855-203-6080) is linked up to a number (587-760-0895) out of Alberta, Canada. Which is probably linked to other numbers back to an Arabic speaking country, where these cybercriminals reside. As all of the scammers have a heavy Arabic accent.

    I got an eMail today, Nov.2017.. bogus. Just look at the address of whom it was sent by..., not a yahoo address.
    <01718039.DCC9B9557CD39E4F7449D1agtdddhkkui@ shleevqaxge.com> is not a business.
