    I just received the same call from 320-348-1140. He became belligerent saying I did subscribe to this. The phone consisted of this language.

    Your US Tech Support Protection Plan membership is set to renew today and $399 dollars will be deducted from your account

    Because your account is set to auto-renew, we will automatically process your next payment on today. We will process the payment tonight.

    I informed him I didn't sign up for anything and he started yelling stated yes I did. He told me I needed to be in front of my computer and go to the website to cancel. I again said I didn't sign up for anything and he again started yelling yes I did. He sounded like a foreign person.

    I said then cancel it then and the voice message, in the beginning, told me to press one to cancel. I pressed one. He kept telling me I needed to log onto my computer to cancel. I told him I didn't have a computer and he insisted I log on to my computer to cancel.

    THIS IS DEFINITELY A SCAM!

    Again the phone number is: 320-348-1140.

    They sent me an email. I called the number to say I don’t know who you are. They too wanted to get into my laptop. I told them no and I was reporting them to the fcc and my bank.

    These people need to be stopped.

    I received two emails from these guys this morning. It sounded fishy, so they went into the spam folder. I don't answer calls from numbers that aren't on my phone, so I don't know if they tried to call me. I hope no one else gets scammed.

    I received a call this morning from this company indicating my credit card would be charged a renewal fee of $399. After several calls I was told they could see I did not have a computer listed. The phone number was 818-651-7871

  • February 15, 2020 at 1:40 PM by an anonymous user from: Bedminster, New Jersey, United States

    I received this exact email this morning! They wanted my email address so they could get into my computer and cancel! If they couldn’t get into my computer to cancel they we’re going to catch me! I told them to have a nice day and hung up!

    My wife has just fallen for this very scam. She was contacted via e-mail that she would be renewed on a certain date. She called the number in the e-mail to cancel and was told they needed to check her computer to insure all was ok and that she would be entitled to a partial refund for services not used. She let them into her computer remotely and they stole $500.00 from her account. Her trusting heart paid the price, People BEWARE!
