Caller told me I had malicious files on my computer. Told me he was from "Windows Service Station"! Asked how he got my tel. #. Says from my computer ID. His English was so poor, I couldn't understand his answer when I asked him what computer # he was referring to. all dispay showed Private number. Told him monitoring my computer was illegal and I didn't believe him. He kept trying to convince me I had a problem so I told him that he'd have to give me a # to call him back if he wanted my co-operation. He gave me 209-753-4552. When I called back to see if it was a real number/company, he answered but stumbled on his words as if he forgot what company name to use. Definitely a scammer. Beware!!
Received a call about malware infecting the computer. User was scammed into buying software with visa card. Asked to give a number to call back. This was the number they used. The website they were affiliated with was fullpcsupport.com
I just got a call from 253-802-0308, yesterday the number was 209 753-4552 they Said from Vancouver, and the day before from 613-905- 6811.
I told them i called Microsoft about "the issues", and that they are a scam. They told me to "shut up and listen", i told them to shut the He!! up and i could do whatever i wanted and hung up.
I talked to Samantha and Clement, Clement is the head person. They were Eastern from the accent, or southern Asian whatever you want to call them.
I received a call from "Rick", stating he was calling from Microsoft. Said my computer was sending a notification to Microsoft that my backup files were malfunctioning.
I told him I didn't run Window's software and that I didn't own a PC ( even though I do). I asked him for a return phone number and was give 209-753-4552. [the call was from (253-802-0308)] I asked for his extension and he said his name was RICK. When I asked if there is only one Rick that works for Microsoft, he responded yes. I told him to kiss my a*s and hung up.
The same story: it was a call from “Rick”, “Windows Tech Department”, located “in California”. He offered me to access my PC (I use four computers simultaneously, by the way) remotely to remove some malicious soft... He informed me that his Department can see “a yellow message: your computer is under attack of an intruder” 8-(… Holly #$%^&!!! He provided me the same phone #: 2097-534-552. This Rick has a verrry strong Chinese accent and barely speaks English. Many calls go to Canada.
Called my home telling me that our Microsoft backup software licence had expired. I needed to pay to have it updated and then they would go into my computer and upgrade the SW.
When I asked him the name of the SW he told me the microsoft backup SW. I asked hm the name once again because I wanted to have a look at is myself. He said I wouldn't be able to do it myself.
I told him that he was a scammer and that I was going to report him to the police and he hung up.
He had a Jamaican accent.
i know how that feels! those people never tire being nuisance! got a call like yours and said i have viruses on my PC and it's gonna blow if not fixed right away! ha ha ha! that dOrk! i slammed the phone down with a loud bang! hope it broke his eardrums...that should make him put me on DNC list!
He said he is a software engineer with Windows and that my software license had expired. He said he had my computer IP number and I needed to turn on my computer right away and that he would tell me what to do to correct this.
I told him I don't know him and that I would have to look into this matter. He left me his number to call him back: 2097534552. I do hope something can be done to get rid of these scammers.!
"Windows Center" called and told me about my malicous software virus's and to buy their product for $229.00 US or my computer would shut down in 35 minutes and won't turn back on. Immediatly after i hung up someone started controlling my mouse and i was like WTF.
I too was told rick was from microsoft and have infected files by the hundreds on my computer. He had a very strong Indian accent.almost had me fooled as he said my computer will shut down in 35 minutes but not quite Rick!!! hopefully we can get rid of these people
This guy called me and told me that I had a problem with my backup software and he was calling from Microsoft.
I played along for a while and he told me to go to a web site www.logmein123.com, I didnt go to the site as I am sure it would have downloaded some malicious software. When he told me his name was Dumbledore and he was the manager of Microsoft software department, I asked him if he was going to use his wand to fix my computer, eventually I told him to take his wand and stick it up his but sideways, at that point he called me a M*!@$R F*!@#R I told him that was good customer service from Microsoft then put the phone down
Same story. Windows Service Centre. They can take control of your computer through logmein. I am not sure what they would do, but likely know how to access banking info or other info to use for a bad purpose. I have had this call twice, my husband once, my mother once. I know not to do it, but someone like my aging mother who is very unfamiliar with computers could be taken in.
Stop these people! I will report to http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm
Same story. Windows Service Centre. Poor English. My husband, the one who actually took the call is a Software Developer...he decided to have some fun with them. He pretended to go along with what they wanted him to do and that we seem to have lots of viruses on our computer. When our computer, running OSX is not even on. He wanted us to go to www.logmeon123.com! Which would have given him accessed to our computer. Eventually, my husband got tired of playing with them and told him that he got a Blue Screen of Death, and blaming the caller along the way. This guy being totally ballsy, try to get The Husband to reboot the computer and try again! The Husband had had enough and told him that it has been fun and hung up. Not 5 mins later, same guy call back and asked what happened? what happened? I pretended not to understand him and said that he had the wrong number.
BTW, the caller ID show some garbage number, The Husband, asked for a call back number to the 209-753-4552 number. BEWARE!!
Same story. Windows Service Dept. told me I had errors and warnings and needed to go through some things to fix my moms computer. I asked him his name and asked for comfirmation number and the one he gave me there was no answer. he had me run cmd and logmein in the end took me to website to pay for upgrade for backup systm for motherboard. told him no i dont think so have never heard of windows technical dept calling to tell you your computer is going to crash if these errors dont get fixed .. so i hung up on him ... but after running those 2 commands has no idea what they are able to get ahold of ...
A friend of mine sent me an email about someone calling from this number tonight (she lives in Montreal, Canada). This is the 3rd time I have heard about this happening in the Montreal area, so these criminals are getting more organized or simply more numerous and searching for more territory to scam.
This is what she had to say:
"I got this call today from someone who claimed they were from Windows telling me that my Windows hardware security has expired and that they are getting messages from my computer every day that is telling them my computer is in trouble and that it is about to crash. He had me go on my computer and the page that came up was called "LogMeIn Rescue" and it said "Your desktop is being remotely conrolled by windows service". He put me through umpteen pages on my computer and finally wanted me to connect with www.pc2support.com where I had the choice of 3 or 4 versions of a windows security hardware for the price of $369.00 or so, U.S. probably and he wanted me to give him my visa and purchase right away. I refused, of course. Told him I was not prepared to do that and asked him for a phone number where I could call back, once I was ready to do so. He gave me a number for the Windows service department which he said was in California as 1-209-753-4552."
I hope that this helps someone avoid an unpleasant experience like hers.
Please be very aware that this scam is being perpetrated on even the elderly. I just happened to be visiting a dear friend 93 years young that received this type of call and after a few frustrating moments of trying to understand what was clearly an East Indian accent, passed it over to me. Early in the conversation I knew it was a scam. Being in the business for many years, I was curious where this would lead. I played along asking technical questions which tripped him up several times. At this point I felt I had heard enough. When I asked how to reach him, I got the same bogus callback # 209 753-4552.
My main concern is these Weasels are calling innocent elderly naive computers users , even at "Care Centers"
To make it appear more legitimate they use a relative or friend as referring them. They probably got this info from web sites like "Facebook" So pass the word along to either hang up or tell them they need to talk to someone else and they're not available.
I hope this is of some help.
It looks like India can join Countries like Nigeria topping the list as the worst for portraying scams
