User Complaints for 571-242-9987
They are known as "24/7 PC Care". They will either ask you to purchase their PC service care (whether they mention your computer having a virus, to clean your computer, or to check your computer for any issues). To do this, they will ask to access your computer via a downloaded application on your desktop or through a link that will grant them access to your computer. Don't allow this. This is an easy way for them to collect identity information, card information, phone numbers, etc. (anything linked to your computer)
On other occasions, they will ask if you would like a refund from their system/some sort of deal on their product. They will then ask for you to give them access to your computer, and/or to make some sort of deposit so they can verify your information. Do not do this either! This is a way for them to give them access to your bank account and to get your information + take money out of your account after the deposit is made.
They will sometimes say that they are affiliated with Dell or Microsoft, but this is untrue. If this were the case, you'd be called by them through an identified call rather than by an unlisted number. They are persistent, so be on your guard and keep away from the phone when you see the number/hear their name.
I was aware of this when picking up the phone, so I gave them a swift verbal thrashing.

I received a text message from this number that said: Apple needs iPhone5 testers:The first 1000 users who visit http://testmobilesnow.com and enter code 1000 will get to test & keep the new iPhone5. I am reporting this because it is a scam and they have no reason to call me. I have know idea where they got my cell number.
