Got a pop-up on my father's iPhone stating that there was Spyware on it and a number to call Apple Care for support. The number was 1-888-294-4213 . I stupidly called it and was talking to the guy name is David for a few minutes before call get disconnected and the Guy David Call me back in this number 1-888-572-7957 I realized I only called the number because it I was listed in a pop-up and wasn't really sure if it was really Apple Care. I looked up the number on my other phone and discovered it was a scam. I hung up and cleared my Safari history and cookies.

How can I report this company Opticom Solutions INC is sending the popup alert for all the apple device and charge the $49.99 for clearing the history and cookies. Apple to follow up on it as these alerts are saying they are with Apple?
guys complaint about this company is scam all apple customer in usa please report about this company

    Hi Corla, unfortunately tech support scams are a very common threat these days. Here's what Apple recommends - "Scammers spoof phone numbers and use flattery and threats to pressure you into giving them information, money, and even iTunes gift cards. Always verify the caller's identify before you provide any personal information. If you get an unsolicited call from someone claiming to be from Apple, hang up and contact us directly." To contact Apple follow this link -
