This number called about viruses on my computer. They referred to themselves as '35 Technical Department of Windows'. I asked if they were affiliated with Microsoft and got sent to a new representative. I asked how they got my phone number, they said from my computers IP address. I said that the two were not affiliated, they gave me to a third representative. I asked where they were located, they said London, UK. When I requested a street address so I could verify their company, they hung up on me.
I got the same number calling me with an indian accent. About the new laptop I just bought. I got defensive and rude as I usually am when I get a call out of the blue for my information. I hadn't bought a new laptop didn't even have one. The only thing different I have been doing is paypal and ebay. So they could be getting information somewhere through them. Anybody else using ebay and paypal too?
A woman with an Indian accent called and said she was with a computer protection company and our computer had shown to be "infected" with some harmful software. She asked me to turn my computer on and asked me to press certain keys. I played along as the gullible old woman, and when she asked me to press the "four flag key" as on a Windows computer, I informed her that I did not have that on my keyboard, and my computer was a Mac. She then muttered to someone in the background and hung up on me. I know about this scam as I work for a business center where I answer phone for multiple businesses and we are always being targeted. If you check further, I think they get into your hard drive to steal passwords or information, and you give them all the info yourself!
This number called me yesterday. I wasn't home, and they didn't leave a message, so I just saw it on the caller id. I googled the area code, and it said it is an area code from the Jharkhand area of India. No clue how they got my number, as I'm unlisted and am on the 'do not call registry.'
A woman with an Indian accent called and said she was with a computer protection company and our computer had shown to be "infected" with some harmful software.When I asked her where this was coming from, she said the Global Internet Service that manages the internet. I informed her that I worked in IT and that there was no such service and she promptly hung up.
8 AM GOT THE FIRST CALL....HEAVY ACCENT INDIAN VOICE..TOLD HER I WASN'T INTERESTED AND MY COMPUTER WAS FINE. I HUNG UP ON HER 30 SECONDS LATER SHE CALLED BACK TOLD HER I WAS ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST AND NOT TO CALL ME BACK. YES THESE CALLS CAME TO MY HOME PHONE/LANDLINE.....HATE THIS SORT OF c**p. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD BE BANNED.
Got the call a few hours ago 03/24/13 claimed to be with Microsoft/Windows 35 from India. I followed the instructions till my fiancÚ told me to hang up. She called back angry asking why I hung up. I told her never to call again. She also asked to speak the owner of the computer and told me about all the viruses my computer had contracted and how the other two computers in the house were also infected....she also threatened to disconnect my service for a year. Can people do that? Also who the heck calls on a SUNDAY Night and the confirms it's Sunday night over where I am at? Erm....changed all my info just incase and running my virus scanner now.
First call from 326-172-0000 was treated to my voice mail (aka, Three Stooges) and left a rambling, incoherent message. Five minutes later the same number called, so I answered with my very bad redneck accent. The accented Indian-sounding lady (she kind of reminded me of the Fisher Stevens character in Short Circuit) passed me to another rep(tile) who was equally nonplussed with my own accented responses. They hung up on me and no more calls so far ;-)
I received a call from 326-172-0000 on April 12, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. Central time. It was a man with a heavy accent like from India speaking really fast that I couldn't make out what he was saying. So I asked him to speak slower because I don't know what he saying. Then he starting raising his voice saying something, but the only thing I did hear him say my life is in danger and I will be killed. When I repeated that my life is in danger I will be kill he went on again talking loud and said I don't understand. I will be killed. I asked him who he was and who does he wish to speak to but never answered. Then I told him never to call this number again or I will take further action and hung up. The number came on my ID before but I was not home to answer. I don't take threats lightly.
Same deal; Indian accent; downloaded viruses; yada-yada-yada. Never got beyond that before hanging up. This is probably an India-based phishing/scam group routed thru NC (Area code 326). Thankfully we have Cox's digital phone with call blocking. Wont be hearing from them again!
10:45 PM Friday , May 11, 2013, man with Asian Indian accent called to warn me that my computer was sending back messages all night, and possibly for days, and my computer was going to crash. Noise in the background suggested a busy office environment. He said he got my husband's name from agreements with Microsoft. His message was urgent. Something bad was going to happen so I should go to the computer. When told we had Apple product, he said, "We'll discontinue your license to the Windows" and hung up. ID left on the phone: U50107104700061.
Called saying my computer has a virus. Challenged him "which computer" as I have several, continued without answer, oriental accent. Told him he was a scammer, I have Norton 360, and Microsoft never calls unsolicited to fix anything. He continued with trying to legitimize himself and I hung up.
This number has called me repeatedly about my "windows computer problem"-I do not have windows. The man speaks with an Indian accent and he became threatening when I stated I am going to report this number as a scam call.
How can this be stopped??
Call received 7/12/13 at 11:08 am (pst). Caller sounds like calling from off shore and he stated "I'm calling from Microsoft and I am calling about your computer". I told him "No", he said, "No", I said, "I dont have a computer", he said "You dont have a computer", I said " No, I dont have one". He then hung up on me. This is not the first time I have received this type of call. They usually call about 1 every 2 months.
An Indian woman called 07/28/2013 with extremely heavy accent called from this number. Told me that she was with "technical dept of Windows" and that they were getting reports that my computer is sending out viruses. Kept insisting she was with "windows" and was speaking very poor English. She wanted me to go into my computer so she could show me the viruses.....I stopped her at that point and told her No I wasn't going to do ANYTHING with her on my computer and to add me to her DO NOT CALL list, but then she hung up on me. I have no idea how these people got my number as I am non-listed. I read above that someone mentioned Ebay and Paypal which I am an active member of for business purposes...Hummm is that what the link is?
Just got a call from an Indian accented lady. She told me they were calling from the Windows computer department. We had ours serviced a few months ago and thought it was not related to that due to the phone # and accent. She said "they" were receiving issues from my computer. I told her it was BS. She wanted me to go the computer and type in some commands. I knew it was a scam and played along, I asked who she was calling for again and she had the last name correct, but the first name is my mother-in-laws first name and we get junk mail all of the time with her first name and our last name, so that was another red flag. I put her on hold and eventually hung up on her.
