Intuit Geek Squad Scam Auto Renewal Email 2022

The "Geek Squad Renewal" email below, which appears to have been sent from an Intuit address, is a scam. The fake email is being sent by online scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into calling them at the fake Geek Squad helpline number - 1-808-515-3770. Therefore, recipients are asked not to call the fake telephone number. The legit Geek Squad telephone number is 1-888-880-5019.

    Looked official and I called. Wasn't near a pc so rep insisted that I call HIM back so we would not have to start over (even though he had done nothing). That's when I knew it was a scam. Thanks for confirming.

    I received the Intuit Geek Squad auto renewal email message yesterday. My charge was going to be $199.99. The “contact us immediately” number was 1-860-579-9888. I called and a male with a foreign accent wanted me to logon to my computer to begin the refund process. I told him I didn’t have a computer and he repeated his first statement. I realized it was a scam and told him I would take care of it myself and then hung up.

  • June 22, 2022 at 3:17 PM by an anonymous user from: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

    Got the email called the number. They answered.. "Geek Squad". I listened to background and you can tell it is quite active. I reverse searched the given number and saw the scam alert. The dude had foreign accent and told me they were in Texas.

    Here's email:

    I received the email and called. They had me to to Google and to anydesk.com

    When it would not come up they hung up. Do I need to do something to my computer and phone

  • June 17, 2022 at 9:19 PM by an anonymous user from: New York, New York, United States

    These are very skilled talkers and they insist that they are helping you get a refund. They try to get on your homepage and then use the icons to suggest ways for you to get a phony refund. There really has been no charge at all. They also tell you to download a pay service and wire them $500.00. At this point the scam becomes evident. Then they say you will be sued unless you let them try to issue you a refund. They are very convincing and all have accents and have no idea what geek squad is.

  • June 17, 2022 at 5:07 PM by an anonymous user from: New York, New York, United States

    They try to get checking account numbers and pins and any info that they can. They say they will sue you if you do not use their method of getting a refund. Their method is clearly just a way to get any type of information that you give. They also try to get into your screen and when challenged they say you will be sued. This is an outrage.

    I received the same bogus e-mail with pdf attachment (which I did not open). Phone number given was 808 215 3947. I understand Intuit E-Commerce is a legitimate company, as is Geek Squad. I wonder if either of those companies knows of the scam using their names.

  • June 14, 2022 at 5:24 PM by an anonymous user from: Henniker, Weare, New Hampshire, United States

    Same scam new number 1 802 200-3738 .

    Called number could only hear people in the background.

    GeekSquad bill.

  • June 14, 2022 at 12:43 PM by an anonymous user from: Fort Morgan, Colorado, United States

    I got one that had a pdf invoice attached. I opened the invoice but it was on my phone, not my computer. I am not very tech savvy. Do I need to worry about malware being downloaded when I downloaded the file? If so, what do I do about it?

  • June 14, 2022 at 10:18 AM by an anonymous user from: Henniker, Weare, New Hampshire, United States

    Just got the same fake email today - June 13, 2022 - that others have been receiving. Same basic wording, and yes, the amount was $329.99. Don't click on anything, or bother to call. It's a scam!

  • June 13, 2022 at 1:57 PM by an anonymous user from: Hicksville, New York, United States

    Still happening but they've upped the amount to $349 and changed the phone number.

  • June 10, 2022 at 8:23 PM by an anonymous user from: Penn Hills Township, Penn Hills, Pennsylvania, United States

    I got that email today. What should I do

    • June 10, 2022 at 9:14 PM by info

      Ignore and delete it.

  • June 10, 2022 at 3:02 PM by an anonymous user from: Downtown Redmond, Redmond, Washington, United States

    I called the number from my land line and they kept trying to send me a text. When I asked what number they were texting, they provided me with the land line number I was calling from then asked for my mobile number and to click on the link to start the cancelation process. I did NOT give him my mobile number. He said he had to text me the link or the payment would be processed. So I told him I would call my bank and tell them to block it. He tried to tell me I could not block the charge because either I or someone had already authorized the charge. NOT TRUE and I checked my bank account before calling.

    He kept insisting that I had to click on the link they provide so I could cancel the transaction and then get my refund for the amount charged to my account. So I told him I would not be providing my financial information to him. He said they would NEVER ask for that because they already had that information. Hahah... Right! How would you get a refund if you don't provide a way of getting it. So I told him to cancel the subscription. He said he couldn't unless I clicked on the link in the text message.

    Only sharing so the next person knows some of the tactics used to try to get you to comply. Don't ever click on the text link. Good Luck!

  • June 10, 2022 at 11:21 AM by an anonymous user from: Fulton, Atlanta, Georgia, United States

    How do I report this! I got the same message today.

  • June 9, 2022 at 9:32 AM by an anonymous user from: Newfield-Westover-Turn of River, Stamford, Connecticut, United States

    I got one today too. $329.99 and I called 802.209.9698. Once they told me I had to accept their new invoice on my computer. Told them this was fraud and was going to report them.

  • June 7, 2022 at 4:50 PM by an anonymous user from: Sunbury Township, Budd, Illinois, United States

    I got one today too. $329.99 and I called 802.209.9698. Once they told me I had to accept their new invoice on my computer, I hung up. This is the closest I have come to being scammed. Feeling foolish, but grateful.

  • June 7, 2022 at 9:43 AM by an anonymous user from: Turner, Ashburn, Georgia, United States

    I figured it was a scam, but yes, I just got one of these emails today...it's in my really, really old AOL email. Usually when I get things in there, I know right off the bat they're just scammers and phishermen. So annoying though. I would hope that people know better than to panic and follow the advice of the email by now. Thanks for flagging this though!
