Two more “Windows” scam calls…

As a follow on from the chain of “Your computer has a virus” scam callers claiming to be from Microsoft, Windows or your ISP..  Here are some more to add to the list.

Scammer 1:

Some malware on a computer was popping up JavaScript messages (on any website) from www.a2ztech.us (IP 162.222.227.105 RDNS “bh-35.webhostbox.net”) claiming the system was at risk.. which actually in this case was true – the machine had crap on it.. crap offering their own services!

Offering / asking the infected user to call them on 0800-610-1013 (08006101013 / +448006101013) along with a “code” S1L457 (possibly an affiliate / referral code?)

I’ve come across this again a few weeks later and have written a longer article about it, the a2ztech scam, here.

Scammer 2:

Somehow one of my customers got hold of this phone number while browsing Yahoo and wanting to ask them for help with a problem on the Yahoo Mail system.. She somehow got hold of and called 0-800-051-3726 (0800 051 3726 / +448000513726 / 08000513726).

The company name is supposedly “Trove IT Solution” (Website / Facebook Page) and she spoke to “Agent 313”, “Ravi Shankar”. During the call he somehow asked her to change her Yahoo mail password and told her the account was compromised and then tried to sell her around 90 minutes of computer services / time. She declined and hung up.

The TeamViewer connection was made from the IP range
