How do I report a tech support scam?


Recommended Posts

Hello, this is my first post here.  I would like to know how to report company names and phone numbers used by some hackers recently so they appear on the lists on the tech support page?

It was unlike anything I'd heard of.  I called a company I'd done business with for months to get some info about a suspicious call I'd gotten, and in mid call I got transferred to hackers in England than transferred back to a hacker in California.  The company I called had no record of our 15 min conversation and my phone didn't register the 4 hours of talking to the hacker.  it was as if the company was being hacked in real time and I was transferred from them to the hackers, thus making me think I was still talking to the company I called.

I already filed a report with the FTC with all company names & phone numbers.  

Thank you
