I got a call from Crypton Technologies.They tell me I paid them $449.00 for a "service contract".They want to "fix" my 2 computers remotely.Then they want me to buy a lifetime service for $499.00 I tell them to get lost, I never paid anything.They keep calling,always from different U.S. phone numbers. I emailed them and told them to get lost.

Now I get Teccure LLC calling with the same spiel. All these guys are from India.

Does anyone have any information on these guys?

They're just scammers mate. Tell them you really need their help, you are so glad they called, just hang on a second and put the phone down still connected. After a few lengthy waits like this they will get the message. (and the time they are waiting for you to pick up they're not scamming someone else)

 

Teccure is a legit registered company, but they won't be cold calling you and hassling you.

Unsolicited phone calls advising your computer is infected or has problems are scams. In a majority of these cases the caller claims to be affiliated with Microsoft Support. Typically, the scammers tell their victims to type "eventvwr" in the Run box after pressing CTRL+R and then scare them by pointing out all the warnings and errors listed under the various categories. The caller then attempts to talk their victims into giving them remote access to the computer in order to fix the computer and/or remove malware. Not answering any questions and hanging up the telephone is the best way to deal with phone scammers..
