Beware of 1-410-200-500 - It is being used by Cybercriminals

Recipients of SMS text messages or calls from telephone numbers starting with: 1-410-200-500, instructing them to click on a link to visit a website or respond, are asked to delete the messages, and should not follow instructions in them or the callers'. This is because 1-410-200-500 and sequential numbers are being used by scammers to trick potential victims into visiting phishing websites that steal account credentials, personal and financial information. The number is also being used to trick potential victims into visiting malicious websites that will trick them into installing malicious apps.

Please continue below.

Other sequential numbers being used by scammers are:

  • 1-410-200-511
  • 1-410-200-502
  • 1-410-200-505
  • 1-410-200-501
  • 1-410-200-506
  • 1-410-200-503
  • 1-410-200-504
  • 1-410-200-507
  • 1-410-200-520
  • 1-410-200-508
  • 1-410-200-509
  • 1-410-200-510

Therefore, recipients of phone calls and text messages from telephone numbers starting with "1410-200," where the callers or senders request money or personal information, or ask the recipients to go to a link, are asked to be careful.

Today, I received a text message from: 1-410-200-500, which claims it is an iOS update, and instructed me to click the link in it in order to update by iPhone. But, Apple doesn’t sent SMS text messages with a link to update. Therefore, iPhone users should never click on links in SMS text messages, which claim to be updates, or some other form of important notification. Remember, Tablets, iPhone and other Smartphones will automatically check for updates and display a notification when there is one. The makers of these mobile devices will never send a link in a text or an email message, instructioning the owners to update their mobile devices.

    Seems like one would be dumb to respond to some type of message like the ones described. I got one and knew immediately it was a scam of some type. Like the old saying goes, "if it sounds too good to be true it probably is".

    My family members, including myself, have recently received a text message from this number saying that we won $3 million dollars in the Powerball. To clarify, "I" won the amount of money due to my number in their drawing, and another family member also won the same amount of money because of their phone number. (It was a copy and paste message.)

    They told us to contact "rayhendricks060@gmail.com" and that the message was scanned for any viruses by "Avast." To close the message, the text also gave us a link to visit "Avast."

      if you have a iPhone, you can add the numbers to your blocked number listing. In the text message screen, go to the text, at the top of the screen hit the "I" in the circle for information.

      It will take you to a DETAILS screen, at the top of the screen is the icon and phone number with a > on the far right, hit that > to see what looks like a "contact" screen, scroll to the bottom and you'll see a BLOCK THIS CALLER.

      Hit that button and it will BLOCK CONTACT. Then go back and delete the original TEXT Message from your text message log.

      If you ever want to see who is on the BLOCKED listing, go to Settings-->Phone-->Call Blocking & Identification-->the listing of blocked calls will be displayed.

      Hope this helps!

    These numbers are used by email services to send messages from email to text. Therefore they can easily be abused by scammers.
    We use email to txt to contact each other when one person is at their computer and the other only has a phone. PLEASE, do not respond or click any link unless you are certain it it someone you know personally.
    If you don't recognize it, then trash it. Better safe than sorry.

    If you are not familiar with the phone number that is sending message and the message is seem to be "too good to be true" - it is a false message. No one will instruct any one to follow any steps that includes your account or credit card numbers. The instructions for you to give your account or credit card numbers are on a template created by utility companies when you pay online.

    When you are not familiar with the phone number that is sending message - go online and ask the computer. That's how I found that the number is a bad one.

He says sorry again and says he "needs to love one way or the other." I said that I don't care what he does with scamming and the last message I got was "come

    I am on the other end of the scam. My phone number was used (probably by computer I am told) to send thousands of messages to other phone numbers and I am receiving well over an average of 500 messages per day that the text cannot be sent. AT&T can't (or won't) do a thing about it. They said I can either change my number or turn off messaging but that does not change the fact that thousands of people think I am sending them fraudulent messages.

    They tell me not to answer my phone.
    Big help they are!
    It seems to be affecting AT&T more than other carriers.
    So please keep this in mind if you are receiving text messages. The phone number it says in the text is not really the number it was sent from.

    • Posted: Aug 10, 2017 by an anonymous user from or near: Chino Hills, California, United States

      I've seen Mystery Shopper in a lot of spam emails. Usually they just send you to a sketchy site.

      Since I use IObit's Advanced System Care and Malware Bytes Anti-Malware, I highly suggest their mobile apps. Desktop wise, these are what I consider the current best. Their mobile apps are just as helpful.

      The only thing with Mbam is it can detect false positives, and if you have special mobile settings, like a rooted phone, developer mode *on*, or third party apps that you know are safe, it'll offer to remove or change your settings. This isn't bad, unless you're like me and you have things set up a certain way.

      IObit's Advanced Mobile Care has some cool features besides antivirus, like payment security, anti-fishing, web security, and anti-theft.

      With both, be mindful of wiping your cache. Wiping your cache can also mean getting logged out of quite a few things. This is usually a problem for me if I'm in the process of phasing out old passwords and trying to remember new ones.

      Products that are no longer helpful: Forget AVG (I used to like it, now it's a pain), Norton, McAfee, and please never ever use Ad-Aware, which actually is malware. Everything except Ad Aware used to be really good, but overtime started dropping the ball. I often see Norton as part of a pre-packaged Windows install. I chuckle, shake my head, and use a custom Norton remover so that I won't keep getting nagged for Norton again.

    I just got a text from 410 200 508 telling me I won something in a Coca Cola sweepstakes and I had to email a code from the text to them. When I realized that it was probably fake and checked online what should I do?

    I just received a text message from 1-410-200-501 saying my C U card has been flagged and to contact an 866 phone number to fix it. I assumed it was a scam but in case it wasn't and it was my bank I called the number and it immediately asks for your debit card number so I hung up knowing no bank will do that without verifying your identity first if at all. If you get this text message relax and delete it.

    I got a text msg on July 17th, 2017 @ 1:52 am from a so called txt number 1-410-200-500. (Missing a number so nice try foreign criminals): Considering I did not send any body a msg that early in the morning nor did I click on any of those links. Just got this phone so not everything got transferred over yet and I do not click on anything that I am unsure of. I deleted and blocked; unfortunately I have blocked so many of the texters and callers that are scammers. Also non of those so-called random txt failed numbers; I actually do not know or recognized. I knew it was bogus in the first place. I know any cell phone carrier have a four digit text report number such as AT&T is 7726 and Verizon is the same four digit report number. Report it to your carrier also because the companies do report and work with the FTC to stop all of this nonsense.

    I have been dealing with these bogus scammers for a very long time. Bots, robots, people, groups of Terrorists or Nationalists have been trying to play this get rich scheme or to support their own causes. So be aware to not to push on anything that you do not know anything about or do not recognize and that should also include phone numbers (my advice b/c newer the technology gets the easier it will for the "Others" to get your identity information. I do not ever answer any number that I do not know b/c for the fact of technology: voice mail has been invented a long time ago and my philosophy is "if it is important, the person can leave a detail message and then I will call them back."

    Here is some tidbit of information: if anyone has experienced any type of scams, phishing, email fraud, phone fraud, and or identity theft:
    Report Abuse:
    You can email to abuse@att.net (every carrier has a system in place for this, look up on the companies direct website or App) or reportphishing@apwg.org, email fraud to the FTC (Federal Trade Commission), FFC Consumer Help Center/ Caller ID Spoofing.

    Report Identity Theft. Fraudsters have many ways to try and steal identity details such as your name, date of birth, address or social security number. You can contact any of the three major credit bureaus to place a fraud alert on your credit file. The fraud alert asks creditors to contact you before opening new accounts or making changes to your existing accounts.

    Equifax: 800-525-6285/ www.equifax.com
    Experian: 888-397-3742/ www.experian.com
    Trans union: 800-680-7289/ www.transunion.com

    Report identity theft at: www.identitytheft.gov

    File your complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) @
    www.consumer.ftc.gov

    I know this is a long message with lots of information. I think it is helpful for individuals to take action and try to stop the abuse. It has been happening for a very long time with scammers trying to get freebies from everyone else instead of working at a hard earning job. Always double check on your credit reports for the reason is each individual have to protect their own identity and it is hard to make sure your credit reports are accurate. And it is not just happening to adults; identity theft is also happening to the youths. A guardianship of a person under the age of 18 can run their credit reports and see if any activity. Also it is happening to the elderly, the deceased, youth, etc. Be careful when pushed buttons and hitting the 'send' button because the scammers are out there, everywhere, a neighbor, a relative, a friend or a community member can be the scammer. Statistically in the United States the number of Idenity theft has gone up so dramatically this year.

    Thank you and hope that the scammers one day will be demolished because I will like to use my electronics with peace of mind. If everyone does their part in reporting then these problems can be resolved one day.

    My husband received messages from 1-410-200-500, -501, and -502 on his iPhone, but I have blocked each of those numbers. They were supposedly from Jason with outlook.com email address, 2 the same and one different.

    Text of the first one: "I am Jason Kent seeking your assistance to evacuate $10,500,000 kindly email me . you will get 35 % loyalty." The other two were similar but shorter (and like each other). I have forwarded the two that are unique to info@onlinethreatalerts.com

    How are cybercriminals able to get phone numbers(?) assigned to them or create email addresses without law enforcement being able to trace them or track them some way through their ISPs?

    I still have a landline phone and what I have found recently is that caller ID will show numbers in my area code similar to my own, making me think it is someone local when it turns out not to be. I have blocked so many callers that it is getting ridiculous.

    I hope there is no limit to how many numbers I can block. Sometimes Caller ID will show "invalid number". If a number is invalid, how can it be used??

    delete


    • Posted: May 19, 2017 by info

      Technology is what makes it easy for scammers to do these things. The numbers can be traced but the scammers will quickly disappear and setup shop somewhere else.

      Also, there is technology that allows scammers to spoofed telephone numbers. Meaning, they can call from a number and make the same call appear as if it came from another number.

      Do not respond to the text messages. You are only telling the scammers that your phone number is active, therefore, they will continue to send more text scams. Most of the time, the scammers do not know if the numbers they are sending their scams to are active. They just collect the numbers and send the scams to them, hoping some potential victims will respond.

    Text messages arrive continuously from 410 200 920, approximately two per second (7200 per hour).

    The mailing list is was from a major USA-based state UNIVERSITY.edu account.
    Upon researching it I found a site that stated the texts would continue for
    3 days -- until I confirmed I had signed up to be on their mailing list.
    The text message stated, "brought to you by ATT."

    I contacted ATT at 800-901-9878 and was connected to an off-shore (NOT USA) call center.
    The CSR rep, refused to block the abusive perpetual in bound texts. The first CSR stated I had to download an application to stop them; I refused. Then the CSR advised me to call 611. 611, is ATT's payment #, because I pay in advance, the advise was irrelevant (an intentional miss).

    Consequently ATT call centers are complicit in this criminal harassment.
    In turn, I contacted the named university's IT department. Their CSR researched it for two hours and said someone maliciously signed me up to be on their mailing list twice this morning at 11:25 a.m. and again at 11:28 am. I did not do this myself and asked their IT department to block outbound texts to my phone. They tried and it didn't work initially.

    Both I and the university IT-CSR found the sender's IPS address, 51.15.53.83 outside the USA. The University IT-CSR found it in the Netherlands. I found it in the U.K at: ISP Department for Work and Pensions, Hostname 83-53-15-51.rev.cloud.scaleway.com Organization Connection Type Cable/DSL,Country United Kingdom"

    Consequently, I advised the university to contact the US Department of Homeland Security cyber-crimes unit (on my behalf). #1. The DHS Special Agent had previously shut down a Vietnamese language site scamming 3700 people at top tier USA-based universities, registered to a major MI university DPS Chief using a Harvard Street in Metuchen NJ 08840 address. Shortly after we discussed IT contacting DHS, the harassing texts stopped from this university.
    Then I received two different harassing texts I will describe in reverse order.

    At about 5 PDT, from the 410-200-500 #
    FRM:cvsd-grants-owner@listsmart.osl.state.or
    SUBJ:Request to mailing list cvsd-grants reje
    MSG:Your request to the cvsd-grants mailing has been rejected.
    "CSVD is crime victim services division"

    At about 4 PDT, I had received a harassing text from a paranoid anorexic tatooed video-game-model energy-vampire (contacted from craigs list) who had taken to living in the emergency rooms instructing me to stop calling someone I did not call. I felt compelled to report her (415) San Francisco, number.

    In any case, 7200 texts/hour will not get me to confirm that I want to be on a research-driven university's mailing list. And the absence of ATT customer service to stop this abuse, will not convince me that we are better off now.

    I will state, the last time I contacted an ATT customer # (same # as above) I was connected to a Philipines-based call center on a fishing expedition. When the female CSR did not solve my technical problem I said I will terminated the call. In turn, she sent 48 harassing texts in under one minute to my phone.

    This is part of their abusive pattern of behavior. I do not believe the FTC ten million dollar fine, they were charged has helped any of us (when they stole social security numbers). We are entitled to compensation for egregious tortious interference in our private and business communications.

      The scammers spoofed the email message, meaning, although the email appears as if it came from a ".gov" email address, it was actually sent from another email address. Never use the "From" address of an email message to determine if it is legitimate or not.

I don't have a keybank account but what really freaked me out was I just happened to be at a key bank an hour earlier to do a non-account transaction and just happened to pick keybank as they were the closest bank to me and I am not sure what is going on but it sounded really fishy and I would warn people about this. The message said to contact a local phone number (local to me) of 716-462-5952 which people should also be aware of if that number comes up.

The first time I open the “App Store” before it would let me search for an app, it asked for my Apple ID password. I think this was the virus. Fortunately, I didn’t enter my password and closed the App store. Now when I open the App store, it doesn’t ask me for my password until much later in the purchase process.
