2:30pm, 3/12/2014. Foreigner who could hardly be understood asked if I was the owner of the computer running Windows 7! I asked him what computer. He said "your computer!" He then informed me that my computer was radiating dangerous radio signals. After a few more stupid foreigner words amounting to wanting to offer a fix for the condition, I indicated I was tracing this call and he hung up. How stupid do these foreigners think we are. Since this was a live call and not a robo call, a referees whistle would have been effective.
Same thing- someone with a strong Indian accent called claiming to be from some type of type of security outfit. As I have heard of this scam, I responded with obviously mock alarm (e.g. "Oh my! That sounds serious!"). When he asked if I was the owner of the computer I answered "I am indeed the owner of the computer", to which he then asked, "So you are the owner of the computer?". ""What's the matter, don't you speak English?" I asked? "I just told you". "No, I speak Hindi" he responded petulantly, "Can you?". I then told him (in Hindi) that I could, and cursed at him in his native language. He then hung up the phone.
Told him I was on do not call list. Said he was not trying to sell me anything but my computer was sending out international error messages. Incoming caller id led you to believe call was from a govt agency in Texas. I just hungv up on the guy. This appears to be another phishing type attempt and people need to be careful not to give out any information but simply hang up.
Called me on my cell. Told me that my computer has been spamming the 'Network security department' and that I needed to help them change settings.
I told them he called the Cable Headend for the US Pentagon in Alexandria VA. The call is monitored and will be traced back and that he is using VOIP is irrelevant. .....Never heard from him after that.
I have received several calls at home from this number over the past few weeks but have never answered and they never leave a message. Always comes up as "TX ST OF GSVC". Just discovered that my phone has number blocking. Hopefully no more calls.
caller ID said State of Texas Governor's Office of Tourism...They said my computer was sending out error messages and asked me if I was aware of it...I said Yes, I am aware...they asked if I was worried...I said No I am not...They asked if I was a computer tech...I said, Yes I work for Microsoft...They got indignant and said that Microsoft would never hire someone like me...I asked like what...they asked if I was married...I said That is irrelevant...they got angry and said they were going to connect me with a Microsoft tech...I said Really? You are going to connect me with someone I work with? Who? I might know them...they got very angry and hung up on me...It was FUN!!
Called my home phone and spoke to my 80 yr old father. The indian voice told my dad his computer was broke and did he want them to fix it. He said no my daughter will and hung up the phone. This is the 2nd call today. Called the # back, got a busy the first time. Called again and got fax tone.
Called my house more than once, after I said not to call again to gain access to my computer. Yes, it is definitely someone from another country routing their calls through whatever city they are calling. Someone actually told my husband this information.
I have received three calls from this number in the last couple of days on my answering machine. I have no idea who this is and as always screen all of my calls before I answer them. They never leave a message as requested, they just say " Hello", and hang up. The caller sounded like an Afro-American female.
