This is so strange! Yahoo verification codes coming from SAME number as a known scammer calling me for 3 months!! On 10-5-16 I began to get calls from scammers saying they were working for tech support at a company called TechLiveConnect.com, which was just changed to PremiumTechSupport.com and I had a refund coming. I called the company I had done business with for info at 877-958-7560, but was transferred to the scammers IN MID CALL. Later, I got 4 calls from 408-610-4900, some seconds apart, from different live techs wanting to work on my computer all supposedly from Avangate (the parent company to PremiumTechSupport and TechLiveConnect) but they were all telling me to call them back at the number I called in the first place which started the scam: 877-958-7560 (PremiumTechSupport.com & TechLiveConnect.com.) I've gotten 15 calls from 408-610-4900 between 10-5-16 and 12- 15-16 when they may have changed numbers. Now the really strange part. On 12-31-16, and again on 1-12-17, I was logging into my email and had to get a verification code from Yahoo so I had Yahoo call my phone. The verification code came from 408-610-4900, the EXACT SAME NUMBER THE SCAMMERS HAD USED for the past 3 months. That's quite a coincidence!!! The 4 calls mentioned above could not have come from Yahoo because my computer was turned off. I was not using my email. It was not a recorded voice reading numbers, those were real people wanting me to log into my bank account. When I looked up the number months ago, it was registered to a known spammer, not Yahoo. I would like to hear from Yahoo what the actual number is which the verification code call is supposed to come from but there is nobody to talk to there. Does anyone remember what number Yahoo's verification calls came from before 12-15-16? Had Yahoo also just changed this number and just happened to get assigned the scammer's old number? Any guesses as to what's happening??? Thank you.
Today I went on my PC and went on Google chrome to check my xbox, on the website I got a popup saying you must have verification, then I realised tumbler opened. Is this a virus? (It has happened on a few websites)
