Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

A man with a heavy Indian accent called and said his name was "Stewart Martin" and that he was calling to help me with problems on my computer. I've received dozens of these calls in the past, so I know the routine. I told him I was getting out my pen and notebook to write down some information about his company, location, and phone number. He said he was from ISecureVAP in Austin, Texas, and that he was calling from 888-577-4002.. And I said "you want me to type in a code so you can take over my computer, right?" He said yes, that my computer has "viruses" and he could fix them. I told him I knew this was a scam and that I'd be reporting it to the federal authorities. He hung up.

Just an update about AustinPCTech. It would appear that beginning on 3/6/14, Vikas and his criminals stopped faking our phone number. We pray it stays that way. Unfortunately this likely means that there is a new victim such as us now being bombarded with victim complaints. I suspect the phone number just got too hot as we tried our best to put the heat on these criminals. I suggest you do the same.

The best place we have found to file your complaints would be with the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center found at http://www.ic3.gov/

Vikas Parasrampuria from Kolkata India appears to own several global businesses. Another of which is VAP Tech Designs ( vaptechdesigns.com ), a website design company. The funny thing is that we learned days ago, this same criminal operates VAP Tech Designs in our own Austin Texas. All I can say is buyer beware. VAP Tech Designs appears to be a part of VAP Global, LLC.

Everyone please be safe out there on the net. Don't ever give out your credit card, remote access to your computer, or any personal information to anyone that contacts you over the phone like this. If your computer is in need of repair, take it to a reputable local repair shop.

If you have been ripped off by these thieves and allowed them remote access to your computer, change any relevant account passwords immediately. Do so by phone or from a different computer. Contact your bank immediately to cancel your card and obtain a replacement. Also dispute the charges and hopefully you can get a refund. Take your computer to a local repair shop and have it checked out.

It's sad to say that the Internet is full of liars and thieves. Be smart and be safe.

Over the past few weeks, we have found there is an Indian company that is scamming people, primarily in the NorthEast coast. 512-345-8957 is for our small computer repair company in Austin, TX. The fraudulent company that is FAKING OUR PHONE NUMBER is ISECUREVAP and we have opened a case with the FBI against this company.

LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR. 512-345-8957 IS NOT CONTACTING YOU. THE INDIAN SCAMMERS ARE **FAKING** OUR PHONE NUMBER IN ORDER TO APPEAR LEGITIMATE. I REPEAT, THEY ARE FAKING OUR PHONE NUMBER, MUCH LIKE AS IF YOU WROTE SOMEBODY ELSE'S RETURN ADDRESS IF YOU MAILED OUT A LETTER. YES, IT IS POSSIBLE. GOOGLE THE WORD "SPOOFING."

IF YOU CALL US AND LEAVE A VOICEMAIL, WE WILL NOT RESPOND, AS WE DO NOT HAVE THE MANPOWER TO DEAL WITH THIS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO FILE A COMPLAINT, PLEASE REPORT ISECUREVAP IN INDIA WITH THE FBI'S INTERNET CRIMES DEPARTMENT IC3.GOV

If you receive an unsolicited call from a company that claims your computer is infected, hang up and do not communicate with them. Again, we are NOT in ANY WAY associated with these Indian scammers and have already filed a complaint with the FBI regarding this issue. If you have given money to these crooks, open a transaction dispute with your financial institution.
We hope to God this is resolved soon because we are sick of the 30+ calls an hour of people who think we are the scammers and the drain on already limited phone lines and manpower here, not to mention the lost business because our phone line is tied up. God bless.
