Do Not Call 1-844-260-4673 - it is a Fake Technical Support Number

Do not call telephone number: 1-844-260-4673 or accept calls from it. This is because the number is being used by cybercriminals to trick potential victims into believing that they are calling a Technical or Customer Support number. Once potential victims call the fake Technical or Customer Support telephone number, the persons who answer will ask for personal information, financial information and online account credentials. They will also ask the callers to give them remote access to their computers or devices, which will allow the cyber criminals to steal their information and use their computers to commit other cybercrimes, which will be traced back to them.

Most callers are tricked into following the cybercriminals’ instructions because they will think that they are talking to a legitimate technical support representative. This is because “844-260-4673” is being disguised by cybercriminals as an Adobe Customer Care Support, Amazon Fire TV Stick Technical Support, Amazon Kindle Customer Support, Hotmail Customer Care Support and Adobe Flash Player Support number.

Fake technical support number "844-260-4673," is just one of the many Technical Support or Customer Support scams being used by cybercriminals to steal their potential victims' information, money, or to gain remote access their computers. With remote access to their potential victims' computers, cybercriminals can use their computers to attack computer networks in an attempt to take them down or use them to commit some other cyber crimes that will be traced back to the victims. This may get the victims arrested for something they know nothing about.

Online users who have already been tricked by the cyber criminals are asked to contact their bank if they gave the cyber criminals their credit card information. They should also change the password of their online accounts and remove any unknown application or app from their computers. If they are not tech-savvy, they should contact a family or friend who is, or visit a local computer support store for help removing any malicious application or software from their computers.
