Caller name: Apple
Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster
An Indian speaking male claiming that my apple icloud account has had numerous log in attempts from overseas. They instructed me to go to a website "www.appleestablish support connection" then click on "Establish Support Connection - GoToAssist
" which would to allow them access my account. Then they told me to put my name in and use the following support key "202-754-725". Then he asked me to click on YES to allow them access to my PC.
I did not click anything but asked for credentials so I could verify this wasn't a scam. He told me to first click YES and then he would give me that info. He offered up the 800-27-52273 as a true apple number that I could google. I still wasn't buying it. He was impatient and gave me to his "Manager" who told me the same thing. All the while I was hearing a lot of other people in the back ground (as in a big office with lots of other phone support people). She (another Indian speaking person) gave me an apple case id number. I said, I will call 800-275-2273 and get to her via that case ID number.
I called from a land line and got to the real apple support person who informed me they don't make calls like that and confirmed that the case id number was bogus. While I was on that call, the scammers called my cell phone 6 times in 1 minute with the caller id "800-275-2273". Big Time SCAM
