****ALERT****ATTENTION**** TomTom staff**** there's a SPAM TomTom website scamming people!!
Then I clicked the update map and got this link https://tomtomupdate.online/update.php after entering in my details which I thought was odd since I already had my autosave on the browser and suddenly I wasn't able to log on to TomTom.. That alone should had been my red flag.
They asked me to enter my details which I did then said someone would call me back and this counter clock was ticking down from 10 mins.
A man called me who sounded Indian in accent and proceeded to ask questions that were rather personal, like my marriage status, age etc.. I then noticed that as I perused the website further there were links that didn't work and things that just didn't feel right with my gut.
He said that I have ordered the latest 2019 map and that it would be $250 I said that's almost what I paid for the device! He said that it would reset the whole device and update it so it's got everything compatible with the latest version... hmm I was almost about to get my credit card when I said 'I'm a little concerned' He said 'what for madam?' I said 'Your website looks a little dodgy to me' with that he hung up.. I feel I was lucky to avoid handing over my credit card information but he has my email and my mobile which still troubles me.
I know there are a lot of scam sites out there but I tried to find a phone number to alert TomTom about this but couldn't find anything anywhere. I wish you would have a contact number where people can call, that Robot pop up thing is useless.
