called 3 times today, when I answered he (with broken english) said that my computer was sending error messages and if I didn't let them fix it then the FBI would lock my computer. I told him I did not believe a word he said and that my computer was fine. He tried again to intimidate me with the FBI will shut down my computer (I have done nothing illegal). I specifically asked him who he works for and he said Windows service center. I told him I did not believe a word he was saying and hung up

Called from 205-280-0212. Said he's from

Help Support for Windows Computer.

He said he's calling from 302-261-9242

I said I'm on the National Do Not Call List and I would make a complaint but the government is shut down and I cannot file a complaint right now. (I tried yesterday and it was shut down. There was a call from the same number in Alabama.)

The man said, with an Indian accent, I believe, "But you're not on the International Call List." He then proceeded to tell me that it would cost a lot of money to be on "that" list. I kept saying. I want to be off your list. Take me off your list. He finally mumbled something like ok, and then the call ended. I'm not sure I believe this guy.

Too many of these calls! Unnecessary. This guy should find a better job.

A caller from this number called at approximately 11pm EST insisting that he was from the Windows Service Center and that our home computer had issues. He was incredibly belligerent to the point of intimidation. I asked him directly if he worked for Microsoft, and he answered "yes". Please be aware that Microsoft will NEVER call you directly to resolve computer issues and anyone who claims that they work for Microsoft and are calling you to fix your computer are making fraudulent claims. I am an IT professional, so I was aware that this was a fraud - I just hope others do not fall for this.

Same story as many other complaints. They claim to be from Microsoft and need access to computer to "fix " it. Totally not possible, yet they know how to sound convincing. I still get calls and either ignore or hang up. I would block it if I knew how. These are vultures preying on people who do not understand computers. How can stop them?

When I asked how he got this phone number he refuses to answer my question and continues on with his your computer has windows blah blah blah. I then asked to speak to his manager and he says he is the manager. He speaks very broken English.

I have received two calls from this number today. I have caller ID and since I DID NOT recognize the number I DID NOT ANSWER the phone. No message was left either time. I have read all of the above posts about this number and am astounded that there are folks out there that have caller ID and do not use it to their advantage. Caller ID actually let's you see the number of whomever is calling you. This allows you to IGNORE THE CALL IF YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER. You may then go on about your business without interruption and aggravation. Thanks to those tiny-brained and needy folks who feel the need to answer EVERY d**n CALL that comes in I was able to see that this number belongs to a scammer when I googled it after receiving the second call. Thanks also to those of you who say you have no computer but yet were able to post info about this scam...

On the last call I advised them I was recording the call to give to the police. The gentleman quickly hung up the phone. Let's see if they call back.

Gave me the same line as the rest of the reporters and swore he was not trying to sell me anything after I told him I am on the Do Not Call list. I asked him where he got my phone number and he told me there is a separate department at Windows that gathers that information. I asked to speak to someone in that department, or a supervisor and he asked "why". I finally told him I was calling the Attorney General's office and he said "OK" and hung up.

These pathetic idiots are actually quite entertaining. I have received several calls from them in the last couple of days. I go on the offensive. I ask them to identify the company they work for (is it Microsoft ????????????) and they cannot give me a straight answer. I tell them that I have a local IT guy who services my computer and the nimrod talking to me wants to have my IT guy call him (on a # that cannot receive calls). I asked him if he was aware of the "do not call" list ? Again, no answer. I must've been getting under his skin because he actually told me to "shut up". I then took my phone and put it in front of my TV so that he could listened to the Oakland/Mets game on MLB network. He finally hung up after 9 minutes. Next time I get a call from these losers, I will not be on the phone with them that long.

Caller name: Clanton AL per caller ID;

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

I've received numerous calls from 205-280-0212 which shows up as Clanton AL on our caller ID. It's always a man with an Indian accent eager to get me to believe he's from Microsoft calling to fix my computer. I usually don't answer now or I chew them out on the phone and hang up. When they first started calling, I pretended to go along to see what they wanted. They wanted me to run an EXE file on my computer. Another time I told them I had a mac and they hung up. When I am in need of a laugh and can spare some time, I string the jerks along by phone and tell them that I'm doing everything they say. Then I tell them I'm using only an ipad. They won't stop calling, so my advice is to not answer the phone at all. They might keep calling me because I had played along initially....I wish there was a way to shut them down because they are probably making money duping people somewhere.

My computer is a Mac, not Windows, so when he called, saying he was "Windows Service". I thought I'd have a laugh. I asked if he wanted to wash my windows. No, he didn't repair windows, he was "Windows Service". I said my windows were leaking cold air. It went on like that for a while, until I told him the call was total nonsense, and he replied, "I want to f____ you!". Whereupon I hung up. That number called back immediately.

I got a call from this number, a guy with an Indian accent saying he was from Microsoft Service Center and my computer was infected with a bad virus and he would show me how to remove it. I said I don't know he is who he says he is, so he walked me through a command prompt (I don't remember it now) which spit out a bunch of lines and he read one of them off to me to prove he had my computer id number. I said that's no enough, can he give me my Dell service code? He said, yes, he could, he could do that. It's......then he read me two letters (wrong of course) and hung up.

When I told him I had neither one he hung up. Called back at 9:45 p.m. saying the reports were about my Ipad. I told him I didn't have one of those either. He hung up. Woman calls at 10 p.m. I told her that my husband was a cop and that he was looking into these calls. She called me a bad name and hung up.

Caller name: "Windows Support Center"

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Called stating that he was from the "Windows Support Center", and stated that my computer was sending messages to their database and was infected. I asked if it was doing it right now, and he said yes. Strange, I was in my truck driving at the time, and the computer was turned off...

Broken english, possibly Indian. Informed him that I used an Android device, and it would be very strange that it would be sending error messages to Windows (a blatent lie, of course). This confused him and he started his spiel again, and finally gave up after I told him I'd call Google and ask them why Jellybeen was sending error messages...he finally hung up.

Ran a full scan on the computer with multiple security systems (Trend, Malware antimalware and Spybot...nothing to be found.

Caller name: windows technical

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Man with heavy Indian accent calls every day in the afternoon saying there is something wrong with my windows software. Says it is sending them a code and that I need to sit down at the computer and follow their instructions to correct this issue. I told them that I don't have a windows computer I have an Apple and he hung up on me the first day, but then he continues to call back every day even after I tell him not to. It is a total scam because if there was actually an issue Microsoft would issue a press statement and then a patch for the problem. There are many people who would easily fall for this, however, and that is why I am going to great lengths to report this here, the do not call registry, as well as directly with the FCC.
