Do Not Call 1-855-866-7690 - it is a Fake Technical Support or Customer Service Number Operated by Scammers

Do not call 1-855-866-7690 because it is a fake Amazon, Apple, Facebook or other Internet giants technical support or customer service number. The fake number(1-855-866-7690) is being used by cybercriminals or scammers to trick online users into calling it.

    iPad froze up while surfing, said illegal activity detected so my device is frozen. If this happens to your IOS device, go to settings > safarI > clear history and website data. Good to go.

    My Safari on my iPad froze and a screen that looked like Apple's home page appeared with this phone number inconspicuously but just conspicuously enough to see it in the corner. I could do nothing else on safarI so I knew something was really wrong.

    I dialed the number and the tech guy and his supervisor assured me up hill and down that they were APPLE tech support and that what had happened is that hackers had gotten a virus into my iPad and they at APPLE had to lock my APPLE ID to protect me and that they needed me to pay them anywhere from $500-$1100 in order to keep the hackers from getting access to all of the computers on my network.

    I hung up because I didn’t believe them but they called me back from 582-518-7587 and continued assuring me they were APPLE and that it was no skin off their back if I didn’t want to protect my computers. When I called the real APPLE later, they confirmed for me that it was a scam because APPLE will never charge you to fix your device unless you take it to them and she said APPLE devices can’t get viruses anyways. If you see this number on your APPLE device, DO NOT CALL IT. CALL APPLE TECH SUPPORT DIRECTLY FROM THEIR WEBSITE, WHICH YOU CAN FIND BY ACCESSING IT FROM ANOTHER BROWSER.
