Holy shit, one of my customers got an email from Jose Carrillo. When she opened it up it was The Geek Squad "you owe us $400 please call this number" scam.
So naturally having never heard of The Geek squad, she calls the number. And installs the remote control software. They launched a batch file where they tell her to input $400 for her refund and after they do that they punch in another zero real fast and hit return. Then they cry that they're going to get in trouble for $1600 and that she has she needs to send it back to them.
Luckily she send any money.
I'm amazed how far people will go down these scam roads before alarm bells start going off.
My biggest fear was that they had put a password on her computer and done other nefarious things but they hadn't.
It's very depressing when they prey on old people that have no idea what's going on.
Yep, British trump is done-zo.This comment was edited on Jul 6, 2022, 22:47.
