Fraud Alert – Avoid Tech Support Phone Scams & False Publicity

Techvedic Fraud Alert! Wondering what caused us to come with this piece of information?

Yes, it’s wanted – considering the rising level of tech support phone scams in the name of Techvedic. And also in the backdrop of false propaganda fueled by some unknown culprits through online portals to smear the image of Techvedic as a trusted tech support vendor. We don’t know the culprits behind, and what their objectives are, but one thing is evident their intention is neither in the interest of Techvedic, nor of its customers.

Cybercriminals don’t just send fraudulent email messages and set up fake websites. They might also call you on the telephone and claim to be from Techvedic. They might offer to help solve your computer problems or sell you a software license.

Once they had the access to your computer, they could do the following:

  1. Trick you into installing malicious software that could capture sensitive data, such as online banking user names and passwords. They might also then charge you to remove this software.
  2. Take control of your computer remotely and adjust settings to leave your computer vulnerable.
  3. Request credit card information so they can bill you for unnecessary services.
  4. Direct you to fraudulent websites and ask you to enter credit card and other personal or financial information there.

Way back in December 2012, we unveiled the tech support phone scams which were prevalent in the name of Microsoft Support, Microsoft Tech Support, Windows Tech Support, and so more. However, we were not in the impression that the bug would make its way to Techvedic soon. But unfortunately, it happened. However, thanks to the smart Techvedic customers – who not only answered the perpetrators in their own coins but also traversed the extra mile to inform us – so that we can keep our practices sharp and safeguard the interest of our customers in future.

If you too happened to receive any call or email from a company or individual pretending itself as Techvedic or Techvedic agent, it amounts to the tech support scams, as we never practice outbound calling to offer any tech support plans to consumers. We use it only to survey on the existing customers about their level of satisfaction with respect to our services.

Hence, as a safety practice, discard such communication attempts, don’t share any personal information with strangers. And take initiative to protect your peers by dropping a mail at support@techvedic.com. Or call us on the toll-free number +1-855-859-0057.

Remember the TRUTH prevails!
