supportonclick.com scamming you by telephone!

Postby MysteryFCM » Thu Mar 26, 2009 10:02 pm

I am posting this as a warning concerning a scam currently doing the rounds, that unfortunately, risks tarnishing the good name of Malwarebytes.

The scam, documented here, warns of scammers phoning you up, claiming to be calling from or on behalf of, Malwarebytes and telling you your computer is running slow etc, in an effort to get you to purchase "malware protection".

The user that reported this, mentioned the numbers they gave two contact numbers;

781-452-0714 (Massachusetts)
347-289-3770 (New York)

Whether these were the numbers they called from, is not known. Reports on 800notes.com show this dating as far back as December for the 347 number, and February for the 781 number.

I'll take this opportunity to state this site is in no way associated with Malwarebytes. They continue to use my material with out permission and won't delete my account and posts. Seems karma has struck. :whp:

A blog posting about Supportonclick by website developer Steven Burn reports that scammers occasionally pose as representing legitimate anti-malware publisher Malwarebytes. He list a rang of telephone number associated with the scam in locations including the US, UK, Canada and Australia. The Supportonclick.com domain is registered to Pecon Software Ltd in India.
