Scammer’s Number: (805) 316-1757
Extra Info: Interesting session this morning
This is a variation on the Amazon scam. They take you to www.Amazon74.ulcraft.com where they have all sorts of links to remote access software and eventually the cancellation form.
This time they got me to fill out the form (I’m Ulysses S Grant - they never get it) and I put in 1499. They insisted I add the .00 at the end. Having a guess at what might be coming I took a screen shot of the form before clicking on submit. After submit it comes up with a refund of $14990.00. I get very excited and refuse to give them any money bank. They, of course, want me to log into my bank to check the balance. I pretend to connect on my tablet, insisting my bank will only let people log in via a tablet which they give us. I tell them I got the refund, yippee. (That should have been their first clue they were being messed with - they didn’t get it). They continued to insist I had to log into my bank with the computer but I insist I don’t know the username. The VM I’m using is a Linux distro that closely resembles Windows 10 and it’s always fun to watch them try to do things that just won’t work. They had loaded up more than 20 instances of Anydesk causing my VM to crash so in desperation they called me back and I let them get connected again with TeamViewer. They tried repeatedly to get me to connect to my bank and finally it devolved into the usual MF this MF that. I asked the guy why he didn’t catch on immediately when I said I had gotten the money in my account since they knew they had sent nothing and the original charge was fraudulent, too. But they just hung up at that point. Fun was had by me.
