Re: Telephone SPAM ( and SCAMs )


This is an update to our previous post :http://www.securityitrust.com/comput...ver-the-phone/

The latest call we observer are from a group that claim to be from a company called "Online PC Care".
On the phone they claim that they are a not part of a scam and that another group is also calling people and pretending to be their company. When asked where they got the phone number for Irish people and details of the Irish people they are calling they were using the phone directory. When asked why they had called the same numbers more that 10 time and harassing people the Indian agent claims that this was not true. She said that the call must be from a company pretending to them.

So “Online PC Care” want us to believe that there is another identical group of people from India using the same sales pitch and pretending to be them. What else could you expect them to say. So I responded by making the agent aware of the Irish telephone regulation, and if here company was not harassing Irish home user could she explain why she was calling a number that was listed as not open to marketing call. I also pointed out to her about the sexual comment used to insult people who did not want to give out and info on their PC by some of the male callers.
From all the call we have listening in on, and also from people who were are aware of that received these call, they all report that the called had an accent that sounder Indian and that despite giving different company name all claimed they were from India.
Reports from US and UK about this scam are also saying that the caller had Indian accents.
