    Here is how the scam works as far as I can tell. They want you to let them into your bank to "supposedly" give you a refund. They then move some money in your account around to your checking account, three to four thousand and then claim that due to a server error they deposited too much money. Now they would like you to run to a money transfer point and return their money over the wire. They caution you not to look at your bank information or it will crash your entire system. Took me a bit to figure this out but this is what I came up with.

    • September 30, 2021 at 10:42 AM by info

      Just delete the message and ignore. The trick is to have you call them so they can attempt to deceive you into disclosing your personal and financial information.

    It's a scam. And a very insidious one. If you provide IT support for others, be sure and warn your customers about this one. Especially your older, less street-wise customers.

    I had a customer who got scammed by these people. He is an elderly person, and very naïve about these sorts of scams. It's a sad story. Not sure about all the details, because the victim was pretty distraught in telling me the story.

    You call the number and a very heavily accented Indian guy asks to install some software on your computer. They claim it is "to get your money refunded". It blanks out your computer screen. The scammer asked for the customer's bank account number (I know). He got onto the customers account "to transfer the refund back". Apparently, the scammer did transfer some money, but claimed he made a mistake and transferred $2000 extra. And did a sob story "he would lose his job if he couldn't get the money back". Asked the customer to go out and buy some BestBuy gift cards and give him the card number(s). Which the good-hearted customer did. You know the rest of the story.

    I know-pretty pathetic. However remember this was an elderly person. And they can easily be hoodwinked by these criminals.

    I received an email that Geek Squad membership was being renewed and to call a number to cancel.

    The charge indicated was $199 for renewal.

    I call the number and it was obviously a person that English was not his native language answered. HI English was average to say the

    Least!

    The alarm bell rang when he asked me to down load software. Why would I download load software to cancel my subscription?

    I declined and said I would not download. He became a little persist and about when I would call again.

    Then I was sure it was a SCAM! I

    I then put the name of the company on my search engine and low and behold there was theScam warning!
