Scammer uses various scams such as the popular "car warranty expiring" scam. I got another call a couple days ago from an identical scam; they claim that your car warranty is expiring to try to get you to shell out money to them for a "renewed car warranty". Also, they sometimes run a computer virus scam. These don't make much sense honestly because they say that they're aware that your computer has a virus and they'll kindly help you fix it. They don't know anything about your computer, chances are, but if they succeed in their scam, then they'll know quite a bit!
Computer virus scam I think? I kind of heard what they had to say a couple hours ago then hung up and I'm just now getting around to commenting. Don't need you!
Be careful! This is a scam! Trying to get your money from you and your familiy. So tired of these garbage calls. Blocked and blacklisted and all. Bye.
Scam! They called me about a "virus on my computer". Scumbags. Don't answer.
Ugh...they've called me twice with different scams. Once saying I have a virus on my computer and another time saying that my computer purchase is owed a refund and they need my credit card to credit it bank to me. Scammers.
I think when it is the cable company it may actually be a real caller but the other instances all seem like total scams. They may be spoofing the cable company's number. I would be very careful if you're going to pick up the call. They say your computer has a virus and they need to fix it, and also that your car's warranty is expiring and they'll renew that for you if you just pay them (of course).
