A scam has emerged asking victims to download an app on their mobile phones or other devices; by doing so, they end up losing money.
According to the victims, they received text messages on their phones advising them that they would be charged for a purchase on Amazon. In the text, victims are provided with a free phone number to cancel the purchase. The victims, who never made the purchase on Amazon, called the toll-free number to cancel the charges. When they called the number to cancel the order, a subject posing as an Amazon employee connects them with someone posing as an Amazon fraud specialist. By speaking to the subject posing as the fraud specialist, victims are directed to download the Anydesk Remote app on their phones, so the fraud specialist can help cancel transactions. The Anydesk Remote app provides the impersonator with access to the victim’s mobile phone, including bank and other accounts stored on the device. Once access is granted through the Anydesk Remote app, the phishers have stolen various amounts of money from the victims.

Beware of these AnyDesk remote access scams
We may call these remote access scams of the AnyDesk app. But a scam can happen to a person through any app.
Scammers have many ways to convince you that they are a trusted source. They find ways to «look like» an app, making you click a link or return a phone call, text or email. Once a person does that, the scammer walks in, with remote control of your phone or computer, and is ready to access your bank account and steal money.
So, is AnyDesk safe? After reviewing the various types of AnyDesk scams, you may not be sure of the answer to that question. Can AnyDesk be used to hack into your devices and steal your data? Yes you can. Like many other software tools, it can expose you to fraud and malware if not used safely and correctly.
Much of the responsibility for staying secure online and establishing remote connectivity falls on you. By being an informed user and taking the necessary precautions, you can reduce the chances of falling victim to AnyDesk hackers. Always remember to be cautious when allowing someone access to your device, especially when you have not initiated the request.
AnyDesk reacts to RBI warning
