The Full Answer to What Is 844 386 8578 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.
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.
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.
4 Digit combination – you do the math! Or, I will 🙂 . 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 🙂 .
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.
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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- That is the biggest and best tip I can give you surrounding your personal information.
- You can of course change all of your passwords to your accounts and change your number.
- 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.
- 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.
