  • Monetary Loss: $9,600
On Mon.7/27/2020 a fraud alert appeared on my computer screen from Microsoft with a loud siren and my computer was frozen. I called number on screen and was told a fraud was done in my name and they had all my personal info. Someone was was trying to buy child porn with my info and also about to transfer $13,000 from my bank account to buy it. I called Bank of America to confirm this and was told yes this was happening. I needed to take cash $13,000 from my account and purchase gift cards. I went to bank and could only get $10,000. So from Mon.7/27/2020 thru Wed. 7/29/2020 I'm purchasing gift cards from Target and some from CVS at $500, $300, $200, $100 all thru reguest of Sebastian Russell id#ms-**** Microsoft and Natalie Gibson from fraud dept. of Bank of America. My money was suppose to be put back into account today but hasn't. They also have card numbers. Bank of America cannot find a person of that name in fraud dept. and neither can Microsoft. I was scammed. Please investigate this problem for me as I am a senior on social security.

  • Monetary Loss: $200
Infotech technician jay dean locked up my computer by sending a waring message that my microsoft office 365. Was inoperable. I called the number given and was told that they were a third party company hired by microsoft to help them meet the increased needs during the covid 19 pandemic. The technician explained that my computer had been corrupted through trojan virus, lockouts and other technical problems. The technician said he would fix the problems and recommended signing up with either cisco ip or soniwall ip. We investigated and found that they were not affiliated with microsoft. Microsoft created a public statement on dec. 8, 2019 exposing infotech as an independent scam company. The original title of their article was, "infotech solution. This article and many others are readily available online (i.E. Usainfotech solutions is scam"
