Do not call 1-800-445-2470 because it is a fake Apple, Facebook or other Internet giants technical support or customer service number. The fake number(1-800-445-2470) is being used by cybercriminals or scammers to trick online users into calling it. The cybercriminals do this by sending out fake emails or text messages like the one below, which claim the recipients should call for support or help.

Please continue below.

    Please remind your readers it only takes a minute to use a search engine to confirm the customer support number is a fraud. It is surprising how many people don't know about this.
