Geek Squad email scam was created by crooks to trick people into calling the provided number. Geek Squad is a subsidiary of Best Buy and scammers try to convince people that they have been charged $499.99 for a subscription. The main purpose of this phishing attempt is to generate revenue.
When people contact fraudsters, they may try to lure out personal information, such as name, credit card details, social security number, etc. This can lead to monetary losses or even identity theft. However, crooks may also try to gain remote access to the computer by promising to “fix” their mistake.
