What It Is and How to Avoid It in 2023

The clever Geek Squad scam comes in eight different varieties. Here are the red flags everyone needs to know.

Internet scams are a booming business. In 2021, the United States saw the highest number of complaints—nearly 1 million—and the greatest amount of money lost—$6. 7 billion—according to the most current crime report from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Of these, tech support scams, including the Geek Squad scam, are some of the costliest, bilking Americans out of $350 million last year. (In fact, one elderly New Jersey woman lost an eye-popping $98,577 to scammers posing as members of the famous tech support team.)

Why is the Geek squad scam so popular? In short, because it’s one of the simplest scams to perpetrate, costs nearly nothing to run, has endless variations and has a very low chance of the criminal getting caught, explains Matt Hathaway, a cybersecurity expert and the chief marketing and strategy officer at TrueFort, a cybersecurity company. “It’s low risk, high reward,” he says. “It’s cheap and easy to send the slightly customized email to hundreds or thousands of people and wait until someone responds.”

What is the Geek Squad scam?

The Geek Squad scam is a type of impersonation scam in which the criminal impersonates a tech support professional from a large, recognized and trusted company (in this case, it’s Best Buy) to get money out of victims.

If you’ve ever shopped at Best Buy, you’ve probably come across the Geek Squad, a team of technology professionals who provide on-demand support for people who purchase an extra tech support subscription plan when buying electronics from Best Buy. Because the store and its tech team are so well known, the Geek Squad scam is a go-to con for tech support scammers.

“It works because Geek Squad is a widely used service across the country, so someone is sure to take the bait and fall for the scam,” says Oliver Noble, a cybersecurity expert at NordLocker, a company that secures information in the cloud.

How the Geek Squad scam works

There’s no single version of the Geek Squad email scam, which is one reason so many people fall for it. But the end goal is always the same: to get money and/or information out of you via trickery and deceit.

A scammer will contact you using a phony Geek Squad scam email, text or phone call. (Keep in mind, emails and phone numbers can be spoofed to look like they are from the Geek Squad when they are not.) The message will give you some reason to get back to them. Once you do, the scammers will ask you to make a payment, give them account information or provide access to your device, at which point they’ll install malware and siphon off personal information.

Protect yourself by familiarizing yourself with the following eight ways fraudsters employ Geek Squad scams.

Auto-renewal scams

The Geek Squad email renewal scam starts with a bogus email or text that says your Geek Squad subscription is being automatically renewed for some exorbitant amount of money, usually around $400, and charged to your credit card. If the renewal is a mistake, the message says, call the provided number—supplied by the scammer, naturally—within 24 hours, and Best Buy will cancel the subscription for a small fee.

Everyone is fair game for this scam. It doesn’t matter whether you currently have, used to have or have never had an account with the Geek Squad.

Security support scams

When surfing the internet, you see a flashing pop-up that tells you your computer has been infected with hacking software or a virus. You must call the Geek Squad at the number on the screen—provided by the scammer—to get it fixed. Once you do, they’ll charge you a lot of money to “fix” a problem you never had.

Malware scams

Here’s a surefire way to identify a scammer: Some security support scams will ask you to download special software that will allow the Geek Squad tech to see your computer, diagnose the problem and fix it remotely. What this software actually does is give the scammer access to your entire system, where they can steal any information you have stored.

Ransomware scams

To add insult to injury, once you’ve installed the scammer’s software and they’ve remotely taken over your device, they may ask you to pay them a fee to unlock your information. They usually ask for payment in untraceable gift cards.

Tech support scams

You get a bogus email offering free or discounted tech support services from the Geek Squad as a thank-you for being such a loyal customer. When you call to set up the appointment, the customer service rep will ask for your credit card—just to book the service. Except that’s not a customer service rep, you’re not talking to Best Buy and you don’t get support. Scammers, however, get your money.

Accidental overpayment scams

You get an urgent email saying you’ve overpaid for a service and are owed a refund. You don’t remember buying anything from the Geek Squad, but hey, who doesn’t want more money? Once you call the (fake) number, the Best Buy representative will offer to send you the money. The catch: You first have to pay a small fee, often with gift cards.

Phishing scams

An official-looking email from Best Buy pops up in your inbox, saying the Geek Squad system has been hacked. The company is asking all of its customers to log in to their accounts and verify that their information is still correct. Another version of the Geek Squad phishing email asks you to reset your Best Buy password for security purposes.

These may sound legit, but everything about these emails is a scam, from the so-called hack to the supposedly legitimate links. In fact, the links included in these emails take you to a fake site that then steals your personal information when you enter it.

Recovery scams

Once the scam is completed and you realize you’ve lost your money and/or your personal data, you may feel desperate to get it back. Scammers know this, so the person who defrauded you (or a close associate) may reach out to you again. They’ll pretend to be someone from the real Geek Squad who can fix it or reclaim your lost items, money and other details—for a fee.

Don’t fall for the ruse! These recovery scammers will just take more of your money and disappear.

Red flags of the Geek Squad scam

kupritz/getty images

First, it’s important to know and learn to recognize the hallmarks of nearly all scams, including romance scams, Amazon scams and bank scams, says Hathaway. Those include the following characteristics.

Provoking a strong emotion

It’s easier to manipulate you if you’re very excited, scared, angry or greedy. In such heightened states of emotion, you’ll be less suspicious and more willing to overlook other red flags.

Creating urgency

If you feel like you have to act fast to avoid getting charged or losing your information, you’ll be more likely to ignore your instincts.

Offering a deal that’s too good to be true

Scammers prey on greed, and they know that offering you something like free money or services is a great way to get you to do things you otherwise wouldn’t. That’s true for crypto scams, OfferUp scams and, yes, the Geek Squad scam.

Including confusing or inaccurate details

Scammers often don’t take the time to make sure that all the details line up and will use bogus information, banking on the hope that you won’t verify it. And you may not—phone numbers and emails can be spoofed to look like they’re from legitimate companies, after all.

Geek Squad scams are relatively easy to spot, once you know what to look for, says Noble. These red flags are clear tip-offs that you’re dealing with a scammer:

  • The message has a generic greeting and doesn’t use your name.

  • The return email address uses a Gmail, Yahoo Mail or other nonofficial account.

  • Logos, phone numbers, email addresses and other information doesn’t match the company’s official site.

  • You haven’t purchased anything from Best Buy recently and/or you don’t have a Geek Squad subscription.

  • The person threatens you. Suffice to say, no company (including Best Buy) will issue threats.

  • The message is filled with bad grammar and spelling. Such mistakes are uncommon in information from large corporations, which double-check all their communications.

  • The message uses the word “kindly” often. For whatever reason, scammers love to use the word “kindly,” even though professional English communications almost never use it.

  • You’ve received unsolicited communication. You may get ads from the Geek Squad, but it won’t reach out to you unsolicited to ask for your personal or payment information.

  • The Geek Squad reaches out to you via social media, WhatsApp, text or other nonofficial communication channels. Official Geek Squad business always goes through official Geek Squad email accounts and phone numbers.

  • The message asks for payment in gift cards. Best Buy and the Geek Squad will never do this.

How to avoid getting scammed

The experts say there are smart steps you can take to avoid falling victim to the Geek Squad scam, including the following:

  • Do not give anyone any passwords, usernames, phone numbers, social security numbers, verification codes (a key element of Google Voice scams, by the way) or credit card numbers via text or email.

  • Always go to the website yourself rather than clicking a link in an email or text.

  • Never call the number in a web page’s pop-up window.
  • If you’re unsure of the legitimacy of an email, text or phone call, go to the Geek Squad or Best Buy website, look up the customer service number and call it yourself. Never respond with questions for the scammer.

  • Don’t download any unknown software onto your computer or phone.

  • Never make a payment with gift cards.

As a rule of thumb, stay skeptical and make people earn your trust, says Hathaway.

“The best way to avoid scammers is to treat everyone that is asking for personal information online as a scammer, even if they are a person you know well, because it is extremely easy to create fake emails, phone numbers, social media profiles and even websites that look identical to real ones,” says Noble. “Always be on guard.”

Main Geek Gathering: 130k attend San Diego Comic-Con

The annual Comic-Con pop culture festival has started in San Diego, USA. Spread over several days, the event attracted fans from all over the planet who will be the first to see the premiere trailers of the most anticipated films, series, games and comics of the year. “Gazeta.Ru” tells about all the most interesting things that have already happened and will happen at the festival.

This year’s largest annual event in the world of comics, pop culture and entertainment will bring together more than 130,000 visitors from around the world. For four days, fans of films, TV series, computer games and comics will be the first to see the main world premieres and meet idols.

At Anniversary Comic-Con, fans will say goodbye to long-running series like Supernatural, Game of Thrones and Arrow, and welcome new seasons of cult favorites Veronica Mars, Riverdale and more.

One of the most anticipated events of the festival was the extended presentation of the new Terminator . The sixth feature film of the franchise will be released to the general public on October 31 this year. The film was written by James Cameron, the author of the first film about the Terminator, which was released in 1984. Many years later, the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger (cyborg T-800) and Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor) returned to their famous roles. The film also stars Diego Boneta, Gabriela Luna, Mackenzie Davis and Natalia Reyes. It is known that the picture will ignore everything that happened in the universe after “Judgment Day”, and will be a direct continuation of the film by James Cameron.

The CW series Batwoman, starring Ruby Rose, premiered on Thursday, July 19th. In December last year, the first official trailer appeared, which showed famous characters in comic stories, but it was Rose in the image of Kate Kane – she is Batwoman, that aroused increased interest among fans. The statement of Rose, known from the TV series Orange Is the New Black, for the role of the first gay girl in the DC Universe became known in the summer of 2018.

The CW also presents a new detective series Nancy Drew at the festival, which will premiere worldwide on 9October 2019. Larry Teng’s new show is about a girl who just graduated from high school and is about to move to another city after her holidays to attend college. But Nancy’s peace plans are not destined to come true, because she becomes the main suspect in a serious crime.

At the end of the festival at Comic-Con, one of the main returns of the year will take place – director Kevin Smith will meet with fans and talk about the continuation of his comedy Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back , released in 2001. In the first part of the film, the characters from the fictional universe View Askewniverse, one of which was played by Smith himself, tried to conquer Hollywood. The last time Jay and Silent Bob appeared on the screens in 2006 in the second “Clerks” (except for the cartoon, which was released already in this decade). It is curious that even in the middle of the 2000s, the same Smith announced the departure of characters from the cinema, because he himself was “old and weak” for this. And 13 years later, he broke his word and published on his YouTube channel the video “The Road to Reboot: Chapter One”, which was followed by several more releases.

Warner Bros. Studio presented at the festival horror “It 2” , which is a continuation of the film , released in 2017. The film, starring James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and Bill Skarsgård, takes place 27 years after the defeat of the clown Pennywise. Writer Stephen King, whose book is based on the film, promised that fans would “soar” from the trailer alone, not to mention the picture as a whole.

The program of the festival also included a new series “The Boys” from Amazon, the plot of which is centered around a CIA squad that controls non-standard superheroes – “problem” young people. The film stars Karl Urban, Jesse Asher and Jack Quaid.

Another show from Amazon – “Carnival Row” – is dedicated to a separate panel of the festival. The world premiere of the project with actor Orlando Bloom and supermodel Cara Delevingne in the lead roles will take place on August 30. The fantasy series is set in a neo-Victorian metropolis where mythical creatures escape from their war-ravaged lands take refuge.

Director Clark Gregg, along with Ming-Na Wen, Jed Whedon and other cast members, will present a panel of ABC’s The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is scheduled for its seventh season next spring. They will chat with fans about the show, which tells the story of the famous organization of the Marvel Universe after the events of Movie 9.0017 The Avengers .

Comic-Con was also full of cartoons – guests will be able to visit stands dedicated to The Simpsons, DuckTales, and also celebrate the 20th anniversary of SpongeBob.
