Do Not Call 972-924-5296 - Appears to be used by Scammers

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

I received the fake US Tech Support emails below asking to me call 972-924-5296 to cancel my membership. The fake email was sent from an outlook.com email, which makes it suspicious because a legitimate technical support website like USTech Support doesn't use free email service.

    I just received an email from the supposed company, and felt it was a scam right away, because I don't haven't signed up for technical support with anyone, and if I needed technical support, I would contact the people I have my actual email account with.

    Do not call these people back! I am going to alert my bank though of this supposed company trying to get money out of my account that they aren't authorized to do so.

    I called the number and someone answered after hours and you could hear people in the back telling them to hang up. Scam averted. Then they blocked my number.

    Received same email on April 8, 2019. Did not call or click on the email.


  • Apr 6, 2019 at 11:04 AM by an anonymous user from Washington D.C., District of Columbia, United States

    Received the same message on April 6, 2019. Number looked suspicious so did not call.

    Received same exact email today, 4 April 2019.

    What can I do if I fell for the scam?
