A man with a very thick accent (Indian/Middle Eastern) called several times, said he was from Microsoft, and that my computer was infected. He said he was part of the government to catch "phishers." He sent me to the AMMYY web site, then gave me a six digit number to give him access to my computer. I hung up. Is there some way to stop these people ?
A woman with a thick accent said my computer had a problem this is the third time this number has called and it call three time at my parents also and my mother went through to see what they would say to being a scam and they went through their talk and didn't understand that we were asking them how they can scam people. I talked to the phone company and they know about this scam but it is hard to stop them. Always be aware of these scams visa and bank do not phone and ask for prersonal info and some scammers have your info and tell you but I always say give me name and number and I will call back or come in for an appointment. Do not give your personal info over the phone.sioneLa
Got the same call as others - someone calling to say they were from Microsoft and there was something urgently wrong with my computer. I said 'I don' believe you' and hung up. Then I felt bad thinking there was a possibility it was legit, looked up the number, and confirmed that I was right to have hung up. On the upside, it wasn't 'HHHHOOOONK' This is your captain speaking!'
A man with an East Indian accent called, asking if I was the Windows user in the house, and saying they had been receiving many error messages from my computer. He dropped the name Microsoft, and since caller ID said the call was from Seattle, it made me think this might be legitimate. He went on about how there was malware on my computer and it could crash at any time. He offered to show me on my computer what he was talking about. He had me access Event Viewer on my computer and asked me to count the error and warning messages. He got me to go as far as logging on to his company's service technician, before I balked at allowing him access to my computer. When I told him I was suspicious of his company, he told me he is with Nexus PC Solutions and directed me to their web site. When I googled that name I saw that they had been reported as scammers so told the man I did not trust him and would not allow him access. I asked him how much money he was going to ask me for, and he brushed that aside with some excuse. I finally told him I would seek help with my computer from some other source and ended the call. I later saw on the nexuspcsolutions website that they're selling some kind of computer protection/technical support package, with a one-year plan going for $109.99. This may not be a total ripoff, but their sales tactics are questionable. I suspect that they're cold calling households and asking for the Windows user (a good bet most households have a computer with Windows), then scaring that person by saying they've been receiving error messages and that their computer may crash at any time. I assume that most computers have some error or warning messages in their Event Viewer, so that corroborates the caller's claims. By the way, last week someone from perhaps the same company, purportedly calling from Bellevue, WA, called with the same kind of pitch. I could barely understand the guy and told him that I was not at my computer and not interested, but I probably got put on the list to call back later.
Wanted informatiom about our computer. Have had 4 calls from this number, some female. some male. When my wife asked for his supervisor because she could not understand what he wanted. He then said she was a fool and hung up. Based on all the coplaints, nthis is a scam..
A person from this number called us again, EXACTLY like those calls reported here and at whocallsme.com/Phone-Number.aspx/2064560661 , whocallsmefromthisnumber.com/phone-number/2064560661 , 800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-206-456-0661 , mrnumber.com/1-206-456-0661 , www.callferret.com/206-456-0661.html , www.callercomplaints.com/SearchResult.aspx?Phone=206-456-0661 , www.getpayback.com/phone-calls/206/206-456-0661/ , cidlookup.com/lookup/2064560661 ...etcetera, etcetera. Caller ID'd as "UNASSIGNED", the number maps to Seattle,WA (U.S.), and this caller is presumably located less than 50km (30mi) from Microsoft Corp's Redmond,WA headquarters. It's HILARIOUS that the Indo-Pakistani persons mention Microsoft/Windows computer problems 'cause we PREDOMINANTLY use Linux on all our computers (e.g. Red Hat, Fedora) and Android on our smartphones! Gotta ask yourselves this: Is it time to REMIND Seattle's FBI office abt this areacode-206 caller again, via www.fbi.gov/seattle ????
Yeah, I'm also on the West Coast of the U.S. and getting several of these calls. That advice to contact the Seattle FBI nearest Microsoft could help if it's a crime that's committed by someone actually on U.S. soil, though I think that the devious perps making these fraudulent calls are clever enough to be foreign-based. Besides, all our domestic agencies are understaffed and are too busy with problems under their own jurisdictions to pay more attention to the potential foreign cybercriminals trying to pick off we computer users one-at-a-time here. Too bad really. Maybe using Linux instead of Windows and then catching these foreign perps in the acts of doing criminal activities will finally stop these calls, leastways, I'm hoping that this'll be true.
Got a call yesterday around lunchtime and didn't answer it. Caller id said "unassigned number". Read the posts here and when they called back about 5 pm, I answered and yup, it was Damien the Indian sounding guy saying he was with some tech support or security or something calling about my "MIcrosoft Windows computer". Told him I didn't have a computer and he told me to have a good day and hung up. Also my husband got this same call about a year ago.
We live on the East Coast of the US and this number has called us multiple times a day every day for the past few weeks. Many times, it is after 11pm. An Indian says he is getting error messages from our computer and goes on and on about it. If we ask to speak to a supervisor, he says hold on then gets right back on the phone with us pretending to be another person. Such a scam and a nuisance.
