The Full Answer to What Is 844 386 8578Β Actually About – Robocall Scam?

This is going to be a very quick and short review on What Is 844 386 8578 (844-386-8578) review. The whole gambit of this number is to give you a poor quality automated call of a females voice telling you some nonsense. The hope is that some of you that receive this number may very well have paid some company for computer repairs. They are offering you a refund for repairs that you supposedly paid for. They also say that the reason they are offering you this refund is because they are being forced to close. All sounds very dubious and suspicious to me so far.


What Is 844 386 8578

Beware of 844 386 8578 (844-386-8578)!


However, we have a few questions of our own. The lady has no name, but of course, it is an automated voice – but still, calling your former customers without giving a name is very strange indeed. As well, they do not declare what company they are calling from or on behalf! So that is good enough to delete that message on your devices.

We must always know whom we are dealing with when it comes to our cash, and as well, look up for reviews regarding any phone numbers, new sites, unheard of businesses to find out if there are any negative reviews or scam reports. Where we find too many negative reports about any service online, then it is probably best we stay clear. Not everyone can be lying about the same thing.




The Scam Reports. Beware also of 184 438 6857 (184-438-6857) Extension Number ‘8’! Is ‘Microsoft Refund Department’ Really Closing Down?

We have found out some additional data and are able to now know what company this robocall is impersonating. So clearly, Microsoft is not closing down and no one from Microsoft’s Refund Department is issuing you a refund for repairs you paid for or not paid for.Β 

So also beware of of 184 438 6857 (184-438-6857) extension number ‘8‘as that is clearly a bogus number! So they are after your bank details information. That seems to be the whole gambit here. Did you know, that scammers, once they have some information surrounding your banking details like your name, home address etc, they can still hack your bank account.

But how?

4 Digit combination – you do the math! Or, I will πŸ™‚ . There are 10,000 possible combinations that a 4 digit code, for your bank account, from 0 to 9! Scammers, incredibly, will sit at a phone, their devices, and will go through all 10,000 possible combinations until they crack your account. That is a staggering feat of determination and also a staggering fact. Yahoo Finance (Yahoo.com) wrote about this.

Moving on, they are after your bank details. They are of course hoping that you believe, should you really have paid for repairs, that you will ring that supposed ‘toll-free’ number for your refund. Of course, they will try to get that banking info out of you so they can send you the refund. Then you will never hear from them again! Those that did indeed hand over their banking info need to call your banks now for their advice.

‘Toll-Free-Numbers’ via scams may not be so ‘free’. Given we are dealing with crooks here, once you call them, you could run up a huge bill! That is just one way they may monetize this scam for their own profits. This is pure conjecture and a guess but do watch out for that. Let us see if we can find any more scam reports about this scam.



Does ‘Cathy Jackson’ Really Work For Microsoft’s Refund Department?

It looks like we have found a name attached to this 844 386 8578 scam number and it is doing the rounds on Facebook! The WJHL NEWS CHANNEL IN YOUR CORNER has received a report about that number on Facebook. It is a warning and certainly has a name of ‘Cathy Jackson’ for this 800 service. So the plot is thickening and well done to those people for putting this information online to help warn others πŸ™‚ .

So there are many more reports online about this number then I initially believed at first. But also, even if you did not pay for any computer repairs a few months ago, scammers may also be relying on good old human greed. For some may think that ‘Microsoft’ somehow made a mistake and so could in for some free cash! Nope, that is pure greed and so do not fall into that trap.Β 


How Did They Get Your Number?!

Great Question! Who knows for sure. Perhaps your Facebook profile etc is set to ‘PUBLIC’ and scammers creamed-off all of your personal details including your number. Maybe your applied for a loan and it was a phishing site, or left your number somewhere online, where your number was then sold onto scammers. Fraudsters very patient people and are known to harvest such big data for many years.

The point of the time delay, I am guessing, is to help you forget where you may have left your number online and so then you may not suspect anything. Of course we have resources online that promise not to share you information, only to be caught out years later, for selling on that information for a profit! It truly is disgusting. Did you know that there are ‘Data Centres’ in our World who’ sole job is to process such personal information. I guess that is the ‘under belly’ of the Internet and not a so well-kept-secret anymore.



How Can I Secure My Online Personal Data?

Another Great Question!

Please apply some or all of the information below to help secure your online digital life if this recent experience has you a little ‘spooked’, so to speak.

  1. If you personal information is floating around online such as your personal number, and that is making you feel uncomfortable and you want it removed from Google, then keep on reading. Google has set up a new feature recently, because of the GDPR (General Data Protection Rules) set up by the EU. You may see that scamwitness.com is GDPR compliant by the GDPR form to your left. Anyone can now request that I remove their personal information from ‘scamwitness’ by filling out that form.
  2. Bloggers, and other sites, that do not comply then please just keep trying until they do. I have no doubt that there will be fines in the future for those sites not compliant, and as for the major platforms, they could be fined up to twenty million if they do not comply!
  3. So, if you want your phone numbers, names, addresses, anything images of you that you don’t want online, then simply click this article by Google called Remove Information From Google. I hope that works out well for you. This will remove all indexed information about your personal information from Googles Search Engine. However, it will not remove that information already stored on websites and you must ask the owner of that site to remove it for you. If they do not comply then you can complain to their hosting provider.
  4. That is the biggest and best tip I can give you surrounding your personal information.
  5. You can of course change all of your passwords to your accounts and change your number.Β 
  6. Update your browser as there are many nasty software’s floating around looking to download themselves onto your devices. They are programmed to monitor your keyword strokes for passwords, banking information in particular, home addresses and really anything personal that scammers can sell on. Old browsers are very easy to crack and so updating them makes the new browsers not so easy for scammers.
  7. Keep your passwords in an actual physical notepad instead of on your device or somewhere online. Secure that notepad out of reach of anyone else.

    Hi Philip,

    Thanks for writing a very well thought out and extensive review on this scam number. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of such a call, and I have been getting so many automated calls that are scams lately, I wouldn’t know where to start. Its even easier to notice its a scam when you never had a computer repaired to begin with. I’m going to go through the “remove information from google” link, and see what I can do. Thanks again!

    1. Scam Witness

    Hi Philip and thanks so much for the heads up.

    It’s crazy how many phone scams are out right now. I haven’t received this one yet, but I’ve gotten many others. I report them in hopes of their getting found, but I’m not sure how many are getting away with this stuff.

    I really appreciate you keeping people informed.


  3. Mira

    Hey Phil!

    Thanks for the warnings!

    I had calls from London few times, but I don’t know how they have got my number, because I don’t have my phone number on Facebook, at least available to others. Once I answered but then I blocked the number πŸ˜€

    Thank you so much for these great information! πŸ™‚

    1. Scam Witness

      Hi Mira,

      My mother once received a call from a scammer saying he was from London but he would not give me his address and his name was ‘Charlie’. The man had a thick accent and so I was very suspicious when he would not answer basic question. He was trying to get us to pay for some microsoft update. His a liar.

      I let him have it! Thank you kindly for commenting here and you are welcome back anytime πŸ™‚ .

  4. Donny

    Not that I have received any calls from this number or any calls that may be an attempt to get some bank information from me but i think I’m better of forewarned. I guess scams have gone way past HYIP sites now and thanks for this review i think I may need to hold on a little tighter to my bank credentials and avoid leaving my details on every site I happen to come across.

    1. Scam Witness Post author

      Hi Donny,

      Yes, especially personal emails as well in the comments on sites. If you have a biz email that is fine. Only saves you from being spammed forever. Thanks Donny for your comment here today and you are welcome back anytime to keep abreast of all the scam numbers circulating online.

    Thanks for the review of this scam number. There are some of these that are extremely annoying and people are losing either their identity or money in falling for them. I worked in Fraud Detection and you wouldn’t believe the scams and tactics people use to get at your resources which includes your personal info.

    Thanks for this Phil.

    These robocalls are seemingly on the increase and are posing a nuisance to the informed and uninformed alike.

    I actually got an Indian call center call the other day telling me that my computer was about to break down, lol. Even funnier is that I have been an IT Engineer for the past 15 years.

    Thanks again Phil.

    Wow, there is literally no end to the lengths scammers will go to to make a quick buck out of innocent people! It makes me annoyed! I’m constantly having scammy pop ups on my computer telling me I need to pay yo have a virus removed. Makes me realize I probably should get some actual paid anti virus protection.

    Thanks for exposing these despicable fraudsters; we need people like you to carry on your good work of reporting them.

  10. Kenechi

    I always tell people not to disclose their personal information and banking details to people unknown to them. If you have issues with your bank account simply go to the bank branch office and trash it out instead of revealing your details to fraudsters. I have once received a text message from one nasty number telling me that my ATM card has issues and I should reveal my ATM code so they could assist me solve the problem. The number was coded with my Bank’s name but Thank God I can’t fall for things like that.

    1. Scam Witness

      That was excellent scam detecting sense of you Kenechi and well done for noticing the flaw in their scam. Thank you kindly for your comment and our opinion and experience with such scam numbers.

  12. Eran Bucai

    Really great you did this article. I ocassionally have something similar, not this specific number, but I type it to google and something you have to fish around to find out if you got scam-called so it’s good you’re putting up this type of content. You might just save someone’s life savings and identity!

    1. Scam Witness

      Hi Eran,

      Thank you kindly Eran and I really wanted to get this information out there online for others to save them cash and stress. Too many times reports come in of retirees getting ripped off and it boils my blood. Thanks again and appreciate your comment and your kind support Eran πŸ™‚ .

  13. Jay

    This is a scam that I am just hearing about for the first time. These scammers strangely always know how to come up with different ways to rid people of their hard earned money. This is one of the risks of using the internet as some sites ask for our details and we fill them in and like you said some of these sites years later can actually sell these informations to third parties making our details exposed to others. 

    This is really terrifying and this post would definitely make me stop inputting my details easily into any site I see. This was really helpful and I got a lot of information that would be really helpful to me. Thanks for this great post.

    1. Scam Witness

      Hi Jay,

      You are most welcome Jay. Where I live 5G is only coming to us now. There is concern that there is going to be a blanket of WiFi hunting through peoples devices all the time to listen out for sensitive data. I would be buying into all the high tech gadgetry to come in the future for that very reason. Thanks again Jay for stopping by and your support is very much appreciated πŸ™‚ .

  14. Louis

    I never knew hackers had the time to type 10000 combinations, must really be a lot of hard work especially if the account is in red. It’s a good thing you’ve taken your time to expose this fraud. I’m always skeptical of picking calls o dp not know. With advancement in technology, advancement in grand is also on the increase.

    Thanks for writing.

    1. Scam Witness

      Hi Louis,

      I KNOW – RIGHT!!! 10K COMBINATIONS and they won’t stop and they have cracked your account. You see, it is worth the effot because some one could have millions in their account and so that is the huge payoff for the effort.

      Thank you kindly Jay for your comment and I am glad you found this article informative.

  15. Chris

    These types of calls are getting more and more intelligent by the day in my book – the scammers behind them do their research and they know the age of the people they are ringing. 

    My parents actually get at least one of these calls a week, and it really worries me, as one day they may get caught out (they’re in their 70’s and my dad is not exactly tech savvy). 

    Thanks for the article and the warning about this number. 

    1. Scam Witness

      Hi Chris,
