SCAM: Windows pop up calls - the best way to end up in jail
by Rudolf Faix Tuesday, April 7, 2015 4:43 AM

Not one company will call, email, or pop up on a web page saying you are infected with a virus

If software detects a virus or a malware or a virus then it will remove the suspicious files or put them in quarantine and block the access to it. That is the way virus and maleware scanners are working. There is no need to call someone and pay some extra money.

If you are buying such calls, then you are supporting the malware programmers with your payment. You are in this case the accomplice of the fraudster. As computer fraud is a crime, you’ll get prosecuted and can end up in jail.

Don’t forget that VoIP calls can get the same way traced like the money flow. Even if you are booking a “high risk payment gateway” you’ll get prosecuted, because before someone will go into jail instead of you he will tell to whom he has forwarded the money and give all his documentation to the investigating officers.

THERE IS NO WAY TO HIDE YOURSELF IN FRONT OF THE LAW!!!

For you are only this “Tech support calls” secure, where you get paid from your client and not where you get paid directly from the caller!!!

Apple kicks anti-virus apps from the app store
by Rudolf Faix Tuesday, March 24, 2015 5:45 AM

The reason given for sacking from the App Store called the producers is that users may believe that there are viruses on iOS.

Apple has removed over the past few days, several anti-virus apps from the App Store. Among them was VirusBarrier for iOS by the manufacturer Intego. The app was located since 2011 in the App Store.

Once the app has been removed, Jeff Erwin, the CEO from Intego, has asked Apple for their reasons. According to Apple, the description of his app was misleading, since users might think there would be viruses on iOS. After he had changed the description of the app to make it clear that the app scans emails and downloads, Erwin has taken the case to the executive suite of Apple - without success.

Apple has not only thrown VirusBarrier, several apps and also the corresponding category from the App Store. Some apps are still online, such as Avira Mobile Security, Lookout Antivirus & Security and McAfee Security. These apps are free, VirusBarrier cost $ 0.99. What criteria exactly Apple classifies an antivirus app misleading, is not known.

Apple has been always arrogant. Arrogance comes sooner or later to a fall off.

Apple with Worm 

Thank god, we don't need that crap on iOS or on Macs. Plain and simple, you don't need antivirus on Apple platforms. Period. I've used Macs since 1990 and not once have I ever conceived of the notion of installing antivirus on my Macs.

You are doing yourself and all Mac users here a disservice by saying stuff like this. It is widely known in the industry, especially with companies like Sophos and Kaspersky, that there are definitely Mac viruses in the wild that can infect Mac computers that do not have antivirus installed.

Just because you have a Mac does NOT mean you are immune to viruses. It is a very dangerous misconception that you are 100% protected because you use a Mac.

Be safe out there, everyone. Don't believe the hype that you're protected just because you use Mac. With Apple's growing marketshare comes the greater possibility that Macs will be targeted. Especially when its a common belief among Mac users that they're invincible.

How is the scam working? Let us take a closer look:
  • The center has to provide a payment gateway. That means the center is billing to the customer directly. Each credit card payment can get rejected after the credit card holder receives his monthly statement. So the center has the risk for the transaction.

  • The center has to provide Toll Free numbers for US and/or Canada. That means the call center is paying for the incoming calls and the phone number is registered to the centers. A hidden registration is not possible for phone numbers. In the case of a fraud the owner of the phone number is responsible.

  • How the Toll Free number, which is previous not known, arrives in the Pop Up that the customer can call it?
    The legal way is to show a number on a website or in advertisements. In all other cases it will come from only from a malware. Remember, the number is not known previous.
    It need to be only a toll free number because the customer shall call it instead of consulting a friend or a computer repair center located near to his place.
    For all other purposes like a call by using a software on a computer, tablet or smartphone you even don't need a phone number. Such calls can get routed directly over the Internet.

  • The center has to pay for the Pop Up calls, This is the way how the scammer is making his money.

  • The owner of the domain euroanswerllc.com are hiding themselves behind a proxy service at the domain registry

If we put now the facts together, then we see that the center is not working for a client. In this case the center acts as a reseller because the center need to buy the calls and makes the billing with the caller directly. The center is responsible in front of law for the product. The center cannot hide themselves in anonymity like the SCAMMER do, because the center is taking the money and the phone number is registered to the center. If one customer goes in front of the law court than the center owner will end up in jail. He has make the fraud and not the real scammer

In any case the center owner has a high risk to end up in front of the court, because Ignorance is no protection against prosecution.
