I just received a call from this number, and they claimed to be from "the helpdesk with Windows". They apparently received some error messages from my computer.
then they wanted to trick me into believing them, so they had me look up my "unique ID". They had me open up the command prompt, type "assoc" and press enter. In there, the ID could be found.
Too bad that that is not a unique ID, but some file extension information. When I said that, they hung up immediately.
This number called me (internationally even) with some excuse that it was from windows helpdesk and that they recieved error messages from my computer regarding spyware. When Asked if I was aware of the issue I said "yes" and they asked me if I had done any steps to solve the issue.
I told them I already corrected the problem a few days ago and they immediately hung up without any answer. This is a fraud scam phone number, do not be tricked.
I also got a call on my landline in The Netherlands. These crooks claim to be Microsoft. I just registered an account with outlook.com and I believe they hacked this information and found my phonenumer over there. Because I know companies like Microsoft will never call people about security questions, I told them I would inform the FBI. Then they hung up!
Today had a phone from them claiming to be part of windows servicedesk and that they had been receiving error messages from my computer.
They requested me to run teamviewer, so that they could show me how to resolve these issues, which I did.
finally they explained that I should be buying something like windows security essentials. and they opened a western union website.
I never buy anything over the phone and never would record credit info when someone is watching me and not entirely sure if it is save.
The guy tried to run something like syskey, but cancelled that and closed the remote connection immediately. They then hang up.
My Dutch friends e mailed me to find out if I tried to call them 5 times one day. They recognized the area code 425- as being my area code, so they knew it was the State of WA.
I typed the number in thinking it was some fraudster, and sure! What is the deal here?!
We had several calls from this number today on our house phone. We live in the Netherlands also.
When we pick up, we hear nothing for about 10 seconds. Then we hear 'Thankyou' and they hang up. It's very annoying, I hope these calls will stop at night, or else we unplug our house phone.
I find it strange that we just had a silence and a 'Thankyou', all people here had some scammers on the phone claiming they are from Windows.
However, I hope these worthless calls stop.
live in the Netherlands and received 3 calls from this number. They pretend to be from the Microsoft Helpdesk and tell me that my IP is spreading spam , malware, viruses etc. They asked me to give them access to my computer so they can 'solve' the 'problem' for me.

Well, that was interesting...
A: Why would I be targeted from a US phone number in NL?
B: Why are the ycalling me at their ungodly hour of 6:15 in the morning (15:15: CET)
C: Why not identify me by my name but as "the owner of this phone number"?
D: And this is the goody bit: I never have my land-line registered anywhere, only my mobile. Therefore they could not have made a link between my PC an my land-line phone
They wanted to talk to me regarding "my computer"
This kind of scamming has been warned about in Dutch media
Working internationally myself, I would say his accent was from India.
Clearly some kind of scam to get you to let them install spyware/malware/hostageware on your PC.
If you have accepted anything from these guys. contact you own PC retailer and have them check your system thoroughly and immediately:
A quick check with Microsoft NL confirmed this is a fraud.
They actually know about the number and that is is being spoofed from India
She a laduy spoke engelish said she called me from microsoft that my computer is in danger I said I am gonna end the conversation and hang up I live in hollanfd so what is the use for this call?
I dont know maybe I should have asked more but I was not in the mood to answer
Last week they called me from the above number. They now call me through a different number, from Alabama: 001 256781425.
Why is Microsoft now prosecuting them? It would be in Msoft interest and they have the money to do that.
And I have an Apple iMac. Not windows.
Seems this is target to the Netherlands :
I think I have seen tis call before, typically it hung up before I could answer. Today upon the second try I picked it up. It was a guy with an Indian English accent. Who wanted to know if I were the owner of this phone number. 'Who wants to know" I answered.
He told me he has form the Central Computer Department (or something alike), and I laughed out loud. He seemed a little offended. He was "not a marketeer " he did not want to sell anything. They were just monitoring "all Windows computers".
He mumbled somethig that he was calling because of security messages coming from my computer ....
I wished him luck, but then he hung up :-)
What fun for me, what a job for him ....
After having read the other comments: I think he probably referred to Windows helpdesk as mentioned in other posts.
Background noise was clearly that of a call-center. DO they really make money ?
Several calls with caller ID 1 425 905 3074:
2012-nov-03 at 09h26, 10h12 and 12h00 local time (UTC+1)
2012-nov-06 at 11h08, 14h10 and 16h18 local time (UTC+1)
In all cases: no message on my answering machine or no voice whatsoever, when I answered the phone in Dutch.
Likely the same scammers as reported on this site.
Later strange calls show different (non-existing) numbers such as:
00 20 6397 1127 (2012-nov-16 15h05) and
00 42 5406 9022 (2012-nov-19 10h05)
