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.

AnyDesk Scams Using Fraud and Social Engineering
The practice of social engineering is tricking a victim into making a bad decision about sharing information or taking an action. Hackers have a knack for eliciting an emotional response from potential victims so they can steal data or install some form of dangerous malware.
AnyDesk scams that rely on social engineering can take many forms. They all share the common goal of getting you to divulge information, provide access to your device, or download malicious software. The following scenarios describe some of the ways that AnyDesk hackers try to trick their victims.
RBI warning against AnyDesk
Last month, in an unprecedented move, RBI issued a warning against the AnyDesk app, warning users that this app can wipe out their bank account.
Users are strongly recommended to uninstall any version of the AnyDesk application and never download or use it.
Limited Support – You only receive email support for AnyDesk. The support team is responsive. However, it would be nice to get live support via phone and chat.
Limited Enterprise Features: AnyDesk works well for personal use cases and small support teams. But it lacks strong business features for large IT teams. Some missing features include diagnostic tools, mass deployment for unattended access, session scheduling, and session confirmation.
