Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Man with thick accent didn't like my telling him he was a liar since I did not believe he was from Microsoft. He told me to F*** off and F*** you... He even threatened to rape me. What an jackass he was. Sometimes I wonder if these idiots are little petty thieves, part of a bigger mobster, or part of a terrorist group. I think he is one stupid, lying, pathetic little boy who brings shame to his family, his self, etc... May he be arrested and forgotten.

Hey- they just called me! I told them I was in Bangalore and sold delicious curries made with fermented Upanishad juice.
But gee- my Windowsare broken! And flies are coming in!
Do you sell glass panes that I can fix my windows with, or must I cover them with cardboard?
Oh,and where is this Control Windows key you asked me to press? Near the windowsill?
The caller got a bit confused at this point. ;-)
I then told her "MY NAME IS JOHN KIMBALL! I'M A COP, YOU IDIOT!"

Sadly her boss never came on the phone to swear expletives at me. Well, maybe next time...!

Picked up the phone. Male with strong accent asking if he was speaking to a warped version of my name. I said NO, and hung up because this was obviously a scam call.

Picked up to someone with an strong accent, telling me he was calling from Microsoft. I replied in fake fascination: "Really? Microsoft? Interesting!" and they hung up immediately.

It's a scam- they will tell you how your computer has been infetcted with a virus and how they need access to your computer to help you - this is a fraud, do not listen to them.... You see, the moment they gain control of your computer, you will loose everything and they will hack the living daylights out of you.

He said I needed to go to my computer immediately and something was wrong with my motherboard. He said he worked for Microsoft . I did not believe him. I told him I was getting ready for work and to call me later. Thank goodness I checked this number on line. Hopefully he will not call again. It was a scam.

Tell them that you work for Microsoft as a VP Corporate Internal Security, and need to know their name, department, location, superior's name and title, employee ID.

That should end the conversation with these cockroaches.

They have corrupted our communications system without being held accountable!
Wish there was a way to put these idiots behind bars for a few years!!

Just received a call from 212-777-8457 , this guy with a strong Indian accent was telling me he was calling for Microsoft and that my computer was sending them a bad virus. I said ohhhh and you want to sell me an antivirus? the guy did not reply, I told him that I already had an antivirus, he said this is very offensive and we will call the cops and send them to your place I said really? he then proceeded to ask me if I knew the RCMP? (canadian Mounted Police) I said well yes of course my bro is a RCMP wait a minute I'll call him , and made beleive that I had called my brother , while I'm on the phone with my bro and talking to him the guy said I have someone else here beside me that wants to speak to you and proceeded to put him on the phone, he tried to scare me by saying that the cops would show up at my place , and I said ok send them , I'm speaking with my RCMP brother now and he told me this would be the best thing , and he then said can I have the name of your brother? I said wait i'll ask him if he wants to give it to you , and they hung up.

The caller said he was from Microsoft and wanted to gain access to our computers because they were "sending out bad messages", Can't anyone shut down these people and deport them as they are immigrants and committing serious fraud being that it is between different states and countries which should open them up to a laundry list of State and Federal prosecutions.
