A call via Skype at this time to me is nothing but emergency! Before this call, the # was shown for sevral times, when my friend called. Plus, her mother is in a hospital right now... Should i say more?
PEOPLE, THIS IS A HUGE SCAM via SKYPE !!!
I just finished my research and found out the following:
These scammers will call you if you left your contact # on FB.
I found at least three locations connected with this # - CA, Bermuda, and China.
They usually speak with strong foreign accent.
They might introduce themselves as "Microsoft support team for your computer virus"
They will ask you:
- to confirm your cell phone #
- to provide your personal info "because you entered into contests", or to tell you about " special IRS offer of $ 5,000 for a lucky one to spend"
- to visit a website
- to enter into a new business
And I forgot about the old scam of "Grandma/ pa, it`s me..." Those bastards still use it...
