Do not call 1-708-852-0838 because it is a fake technical support or customer service number. The fake number(1-708-852-0838) is being used by cybercriminals or scammers to trick online users into calling it. The cybercriminals do this by sending out fake emails, text messages, or leave voice messages like the one below, which claim the recipients should call for support or help.

A Sample of a Fake Message Used By the Cybercriminals

From: 410-100-001

"FRM: 708-852-0838

MSG: Your card has been limited. Contact Activation Center free: 1-708-852-0838"

If the recipients call the number, they will get an Interactive Voice Response system or a person asking them for their account credentials, personal information, including their social security numbers, bank account numbers, or other information the cybercriminals need in order to gain access to their potential victims’ accounts, steal their money and use their accounts fraudulently.

Recipients of the fake messages who have called 1-708-852-0838 and given out their banking information are asked to contact their banks for help, change the password of their online accounts, and contact their local authority if they gave out other sensitive information.
