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.
