A man with a heavy accent called me from this number claiming he is representing "Microsoft corp." and I have urgent issues with my computer. The whole scenario sounded very doubtful, thus I hung up without further discussions

Caller name: Microsoft

I have been receiving calls from this number for months. Finally a few weeks ago I answered. When they tried to tell me they were from Microsoft and something was wrong with my computer, I told them I didn't have a computer and to remove me from their list. Weeks have past and they are still calling.

Caller name: gave a false name

Like the other people commenting on here, it is someone with a middle eastern accent. Again they are saying asking how many computers are in the house, that they are from Microsoft and to set it to remote client to fix the computer! I may have been born at night but it wasn't last night!! I told him to take us off the list and he again called to talk and ask the same questions. I think I will track him down to where he is at....

Man with heavy indian accent called claiiming to be from Microsoft. Told me that my computer has been kicking out error codes to Microsoft's Windows Software Server and that he was going to help me resolove the issue. I knew right away it was a phishing expedition. I asked him what my IP address was and he got really irate, to the point that he had just completely given himself away (Microsoft would not have struck that tone). The man is an idiot. Just in case he finds amusement in checking this webpage,I'd like to tell him "get a life you dumb sh*t".

Caller name: days dell

He has been calling for weeks, says he is from dell, hard to understand accent, and warns that they have been notified of of mailicious things on my computer ans wants me to run eventvwr on my computer so he can show me what is wrong and how to fix it. I googled his number while he continued to try and convince me and found this site, I also called Dell and reported it. Dell confirmed that no one had called me from dell. All calls are logged into the computer system. SCAM

This guy is too funny - had a few calls from him now - I asked him if he thought I was stupid - he said yes - so I asked him if he understood what 'Go F**k yourself' meant and then he called me an a**h*le - he then called back a little later like he had never called before. Pray for this fella.......he needs it.

Caller name: Sean

A person identifying himself as Sean from Megabyte Solutions called and informed me that my computer had malware and other infections. He asked me to type the following commands and so I could see some output that would look suspicious to a novice computer user.
eventvwr
inf
cmd
assoc
.ZFSendToTarget=CLSID{888DCA60-FC0A-11CF-8F0F-00C04FD7D062}

He then told me to visit this site
http://www.ammyy.com/en/

It was obvious to me that he wanted remote access to my computer. I just told him that I wasn't going to do that and I hung up. I pressed *57 immediately after.
The caller ID I got on the call was 253-802-0308.

I got a call from this number from a man with a heavy Indian accent claiming he was from Microsoft and they had been receiving error messages from my computer from quite some time. I kept asking him how long (knowing that my computer had been completely wiped clean two months ago), but he kept telling me to go to my computer and he would show me, finally he said one year and I told him bullshit and said good bye.angyRep RELEASE

My story is the same as all of the others that appear below: Last night 09/01/2011 a man with a heavy Indian or Pakistani accent called via a bargain basement cell phone service (sounded like he was in outer space or under water).

He told me that he was from the Microsoft help desk, that I have WIndows 7, that my computer has been sending out multiple "report error" messages, that I had probably dowloaded malware or "malicious script errors" from a website, and he was here to solve my problems. He told me to go to my computer and follow his instructions.

When I informed him that my computer is in a repair shop he abruptly hung up. I reported his phone number online to the Federal Trade Comission website:

https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/

I strongly encourage all of you to report him to the FTC. Each person who does so is assigned a reference number. The more complaints, the more likely the FTC is to take action.

Meanwhile, when you have this character on the phone, I think the best response (per other comments below) is to string him along, have him try to guess your IP address, wait until until he loses his cool, and then tell him to go f--k himself.
