Recipients of the fake messages who have called 1-855-203-6745 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.

    I got same exact email, about every other day one come's in my Yahoo email spam-same number, same email so-for heck of it, I called it, some IDIOT that talk's and sound's like an African, say's he's in Canada working for Microsoft-told him to climb back up in the banana tree he fell out of with the rest of his Benin, Nigerian scamming monkey buddy's, and hung up.

    Yup-855-203-6745, just another African dam scam-as usual.

  • January 11, 2018 at 1:44 PM by an anonymous user from: Manchester, Missouri, United States

    These people are asking for $500 to encrypt your computer & email for your security. They already looked up personal information before sending their email.
