Yesterday, 7/20/2013 I got a SCAM call, where the caller said my PC was "sending error messages that showed it had bad virus causing damage" that they needed to remove. My caller ID showed his phone number to be "asterisk", so I knew it was a scam. I tried to act like I believed them, and when I pressed for his name he said David Ellis - heavy Asian accent (LOL unbelievable). Pressing for the company name he said it was 99EastTech(something or other) in Florida. I let him start leading me through different steps at my PC (knowing when it would become dangerous). Static on my portable phone (land line) made us hang up (part of my ploy to see how far I could get him). He called back again! So.... we continued... During the whole procedure, I was pressing him for more info as we got to each next step he wanted me to follow. He gave a phone number of 918-615-4972. I let him lead me to the "View events" function, after which he would have gotten to the function for allowing my PC to be controlled remotely, so I pressed again and got an address for them at 4140 Jason Rd, Springhill, FL. I guess he was so close he could taste it? LOL! As he continued, my "static problem" grew so bad I couldn't hear him and had to hang up.
Using Whitepages.com I was able to track the address to Eric Smith, Diane J Smith, Allison A Smith, and Jason A Smith, and a company name of "online pc care help" (not even capitalized) but the number showed up as 818-827-1313. I don't have the energy to pursue this legally, but if anyone here can use this info, by all means go after them, maybe report it to the police or online at www.USA.gov or submit it by form directly to the Internet Crime Unit at www.IC3.gov . Good luck!
