Yet another scam!

Posted on February 16, 2018 at 2:03 PM
Well here we go again...although this is not a new scam it is new to me. I received a call from "Windows Technical support" telling me I was to receive a refund in the amount of $299.00 from a fraudulent technical support company, iYogi, which I have known they were bogus all along. I have never spent any money with iYogi but this guy (Indian) says I am due a refund. So I bait him aling just to see how it plays out. He asks me to write down my "unique" license ID and he will show me how to verify that number. The number is 888DCA608F0F-11CF, which is "unique" to each computer and I should never share this number with anyone lest they could compromise my computer. Then he asks me pull up a WIndows  CMD prompt and has me type "assoc" and press enter. Which brings up a list of file associations...and a "unique" "Consumer License ID" which is a CLSID registry key and is on EVERY computer running Windows and the same CLSID number will be displayed. Once we verify the CLSID is the correct number, he then transfers me to his supervisor so we can process the refund. Once this guy(another Indian) comes on the line he starts going through his spiel about how I should NEVER share this "unique" ID with anyone, blah, blah, blah. So he asks what is up on my screen and I tell him I have Internet Explorer open with information about the CLSID scams and then I say which is what you are doing right now. SO he says ok well is going to have to lock down my pc. I said DO IT! Lets see how good you are! Well then he hung up, dammit! I tried to call back but the number was fake as well! People I CANNOT stress this enough, NEVER BELIEVE ANYONE THAT CALLS YOU UNTIL YOU PERSONALLY VERIFY THE VERACITY OF THE CALLER. 99 out of 100 of these calls are bogus, fake and fraudulent! Please be aware and always vigilant! They are out there everywhere! And they are trying to steal your money! Please contact me or someone that can help keep you safe out there before you go handing out any information to these scammers! 912-399-5409 Thank you for your time!
