Type of a scam Online Purchase
Upon doing a search to renew my Intuit payroll services (ie Quickbooks, Quicken) and a number popped up very frequently. I did not notice that these website url’s were (dell.com, fitbit, giffgaff.com and many others).. It is against my norm to not look at these url’s first before proceeding. Since the number popped up so often, I assumed it was legit.
Calling the number, the person posed as an Intuit representative and was trying to collect billing information and a credit card number to continue my payroll subscription. When I told him I had a cash card instead he told me I needed a credit card. I told him I used a cash card because of future problems with intuit renewal and will not give him a credit card. We spoke about some other things that he was going to look into and call me back.
After hanging up, I researched this number again as some of the answers I was given did not jive with me. I then found that this number was also associated with representation of other accounting softwares. Then after noticing the URL’s, I realized that this was not legit. I pulled all the money off the cash card to protect myself, and am now reporting to you.
They never called me back. I did call again and the person said the "information’ was still being processed. Please help these people get prosecuted. He represented himself as Jason Cooperfce x103.

A foreign man who called himself Steve called from an out of area number, saying he was with Intuit billing, and was going to refund a $199. charge. He was wanting to access our computer, but thankfully, I didn’t let him. I called Intuit billing, and they had me send the information to [email protected] He is calling a lot of people and he is not legitimate.
