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!

THIS NUMBER CALLED ME MIDDAY ON A SUNDAY. SOUNDED LIKE A MALE AFRO AMERICAN, I DID NOT PICKUP. THIS PERSON ADRESSED ME BY MY FULL NAME, HE HAD MY UNLISTED HOME NUMBER AND MY FULL HOME ADDRES - ALL OF WHICH HE VERABLIZED ON THE CALL. HIS BOGUS MESSAGE WAS THAT HE WAS CALLING TO CONFIRM 'OUR APPOINTMENT' ABOUT 'WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT AND I'LL GIVE YOU A GOOD PRICE, A GOOD PRICE". HE THEN SAID TO 'LOOK OUT FOR ME AS I WILL BE OVER TO MEET YOU IN ABOUT ONE HOUR." EXTREMELY SCARY AS I HAD MADE ABSOLUTELY NO APPOINTMENT FOR ANYBODY.

Caller type: Unknown

Go to the Office of Attorney General (to find the one in your home state do a google search) to file a complaint if you get ANY phone scam calls!!!

Also call the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-382-4357 and file a report with them over the phone.

Also, call your bank and freeze the account and open a new one. Also call ALL your credit card companies RIGHT AWAY!

Caller name: International Scammers from India

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

(326) 172-0000 Live call recorded 27 February 2014 ("We're Microsoft certified, your computer is broadcasting too many errors on the Internet..." ) SCAM "fix-it"

Caller ID: "Name Unavailabl[e]"

(aso called 1 October 2013 from the same number. I toyed with them, now they're giving me the opportunity to do so, again!)

Heavy India accent calling to inform me my computer is broadcasting many error reports over the Internet, but they can help me fix the problem. Their problem is to get me to turn on my computer.

I put them on hold telling them I have to go to my computer (I was actually speaking to them using my computer as a telephone thanks to Google Voice) then they described what to do after the screen icons appeared.

They had me start the Microsoft RUN box and I put them on HOLD to answer the door (the UPS man really did show up) and I tried to trip them up when they dictated what I was to type in the RUN box command line. They said "double u double u double u dot..." so I carefully spelled out "double you double you double you dee oh tee..." and they said "No, no!"

I continued the phonetic spelling when they told me "double you double you double dot P L U S S I G N ..." and generally annoyed them. After I put them on hold again, they chastised me and said "I know you're really a technician...don't you have anything to say for yourself...you've wasted 3 minutes of my time and your time..." (Ha ha, I wasted 15 minutes of their time, listen to the recording on my Spam Calls Web Page, link below).

Thanks to Google Voice ( www.google.com/voice ) you can hear this recorded call on my Spam Calls web page:

Claimed to be calling from Microsoft tech support, and that there were errors on my computer.
Microsoft does not make calls like that.

This person is preying on people and should not be allowed to use phone numbers in Canada.

Caller name: Microsoft Windows Fix-it Scam

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Here is a transcript of the complete 15 minute call (I love how he chastises me at the end):

[me:] Hello?
[they:] This is Angela calling you from the Certified Technical Department [unintelligible] in regards to your computer.

[me:] Uh, yes?
[they:] Sir [unintelligible] from your computer we are receiving lots of error reports and warning messages. That is the reason why we have called you, ok? So are you the main user of this computer?

[me:] Uh, yes I am.
[they:] So could you please turn it on because we need to check it. The complexities which we are talking about, ok? Because your computer can crash or it can get hacked at anytime. This is an urgent notification call from the certified technical department of Windows, ok?

[me:] Oh my gosh, this is, this is terrible. You want me to turn my computer on?
[they:] Yes sir, you need to do it. You need to check which errors you're sending to us.

[me:] Ok, it's in the other room, can I put you on HOLD for about 30 seconds?
[they:] Sure sir, you take your time.

[me:] And, uh, I have to switch phones, hold on for just a...I'll be right back, I have to go into the other room...[my HOLD music from X-Lite by Counterpath software telephone] Ok, I'm in the office and I'm turning on my computer.
[they:] [unintelligible]

[me:] Oops, it's not plugged in, just a second, I have to climb under the desk, it got unplugged because we were vacuuming last night
[they:] uh hum.

[me:] Now are there any special boot options I have to do when I start this up?
[they:] No you just normally turn on your computer. Where you see all the desktop icons, and that's it, ok? Then I'll guide you and I'll show you the complexities from my end, ok? Like which errors and which warnings your computer is generating.

[me:] Ok. Did you go to college for computers?
[they:] Yes sir, so we are Microsoft certified technicians and we have to study a lot, ok? To get the certification.

[me:] When does your certification expire?
[they:] "Expired" means?

[me:] Uh, expire means ends, terminates, and then you have to renew.
[they:] No, no, no, it will not expire [unintelligible]

[me:] Ok, it looks like we are up and running.
[they:] Ah hum and you can see all the desktop icons there, right?

[me:] Uh, they're filling in now, it should only be a few more seconds.
[they:] Ah hum, and this is your home computer, right?

[me:] Right.
[they:] And only one computer you have?

[me:] Uh, we have three, we have two laptops and a desktop computer.
[they:] Ok and for all the tree [sic] you are the main, like, decision maker, right?

[me:] Correct.
[they:] Not a problem, so, can you see the icons now?

[me:] Yes.
[they:] Ok, now so you concentrate on your keyboard now, ok? Uh, on the keyboard, on the extreme bottom left hand corner, can you see a CONTROL key, a CTRL key?

[me:] Uh, yes I do.
[they:] And beside it can you see a sign of uh four flags, a Windows logo key.

[me:] Uh yes.
[they:] Just put one finger on the Windows key and with another finger at the same time, you press the letter R, ok? R as in Roger. Press it at the same time and then you release it.

[me:] All right, uh the Control, the flag and R for Roger...
[they:] No, no, no, only the Windows logo key and the letter R. You press it simultaneously and then you leave it.

[me:] Ok, that opened up a RUN box.
[they:] Absolutely correct, and beside OPEN, anything else original is blank.

[me:] It's blank.
[they:] Ok, so what data you need to type in, it's EVENT, it's EVENT VWR, the word that you have to type in and it will be all together.

[me:] Ok, I have EVENT, and what?
[they:] Then VWR, Victor, Whiskey, Romeo.

[me:] Ok, EVENT, Victor, Whiskey, Romeo.
[they:] Yeah, now you can click on OK now.

[me:] Ohhhh kay, now it's opening up another box.
[they:] Uh hmm.

[me:] Yes, ok, I have "Event Viewer Local". Overview and Summary...
[they:] Absolutely correct. As it indicates Event Viewer. That means now you're going to view all the events of your computer now. Ok. Now I'll be showing you which errors your computer is generating because this is a log book of your computer, like whatever activities you do, it is getting recorded over here. Now on the left hand side can you see an option called WINDOWS LOGS.

[me:] Yes, I do.
[they:] So double click on WINDOWS LOGS.

[me:] Ok, it's opened up something in the middle.
[they:] Yeah, when you double click on WINDOWS LOGS and in it you have five options, Applications, Security, Setup, System, Recording Events, right?

[me:] Right.
[they:] And then you have Windows Logs on the left hand side.

[me:] Ah, what I just double clicked?
[they:] Yeah, no, you just double click on Windows Logs.

[me:] Yeah, I did and it opened up Windows Logs with five, Applilcations, Security, Setup...
[they:] Yeah, five options, right, System, Recording Events, right. Now you double click on the first one, that is Application.

[me:] Double click Application.
[they:] Yes.

[me:] Ohhh kay, it's doing something, it's uh, oh yeah, it's opened Information, Error, Information...and it's a long, scrolling list.
[they:] RIght, right. Sir, this errors and this warnings you, which is generating in your computer sir, the side you can see. The Date is there, the Time is there, and the Source is there. Can you see?

[me:] Uh, yes, it's kind of condensed, but it's there, yes, the columns are narrow.
[they:] Right, so this errors and warnings are getting generated which is coming to the main server of Windows. That is the reason, it is an urgent notification call. Ok. The call so you're adjusting errors and warnings, later when I filter it out for you, exactly the numbers will come in, ok? And now this was Application, the software part, now on the left hand side you double click on System.

[me:] Uh, double click on, ok, I see it. It's down near the bottom. Ok, when I do that, the Applications have gone away, and, uh, yes, ok, now I see a similar list.
[they:] Ah hum, so you can see, errors and warnings are getting generated, in your System also, right?

[me:] Right.
[they:] Now sir, this was the hardware part of your computer, like uh Application and Systems, when they both work together, then only any operating system works efficiently and you can understand errors and warnings isn't good for anything, right, so... And now what I'll be doing sir, without wasting any more time, I will just get you connected to the Rescue Panel of Windows and then I'll be showing you the other complexities and I'll tell you what needs to be done, ok, like why anti-virus was not protecting you, what is the condition of the firewall and everything, ok? So just exit out from this window.

[me:] Uh, exit out, how?
[they:] So you just see on the extreme right hand top there's a minimize option, a small dot, then small two boxes, and a red X box. Can you see that?

[me:] Uh, yes.
[they:] Red X mark.

[me:] Uh, could you hold on for just a second. Just a second please. [you can hear me put the headset down, then pick it up after a few seconds] The UPS man just pulled up in front of our house. Ok, uh, I'm sitting here, I double clicked System, I have a list of...Information list for System, and I lost my place, what are we doing now?
[they:] Ok sir, then you do [unintelligible] ...

[me:] Hello?
[they:] You just press the Windows key and the letter R, the same thing.

[me:] Yes.
[they:] Right, and the site open anything that is written other is blank

[me:] Uh, just a moment, the UPS, I have to sign for something. I'll be right back. [HOLD music 48 seconds, on my end from X-Lite software phone from Counterpath Corp.] Ok, I'm sorry, I had to sign for that, the UPS man just delivered my new backup, my new external backup drive for my computer.
[they:] I understand sir, not a problem. Ok, so you just press the Windows key and the letter R one more time, ok.

[me:] Uh, the Windows, and the letter R.
[they:] Yeah, press them at the same time and release it, ok.

[me:] Ok, it's opened up that RUN box.
[they:] Yes, and beside it, I think uh Event Viewer must already be there, delete it, remove it.

[me:] Yes.
[they:] This time so you need to type in www dot

[me:] Double you, double you, double you, dee oh tee...
[they:] No, no, no, it's double you double you double you then you put a point, like next to the SHIFT key, the dot sign...

[me:] Double you, double you, double you, ess aich eye eff tee, ess eye gee en...
[they:] No, I couldn't get you, what did you type in sir?

[me:] Uh, what you just said, double you, double you, double you, ess aich eye eff tee, ess eye gee en...
[they:] No, no, no, I was just trying to say you that beside the SHIFT key there's a dot, ok, remove it, delete it.

[me:] Beside the SHIFT key is the letter Z as in zebra...
[they:] No, no, no, you, the side open, what ever you have written, erase it, delete it. Ok?

[me:] Ok.
[they:] And now, what you'll type in, I'll just, I'll be very slow, and you need to understand. It's double you, double you, double you, then a dot, sign of a dot...

[me:] Double you, double you, double you, ess eye gee en, oh ef A, dee oh tee.
[they:] No sir, you don't have to write that, you have to do it...

[me:] I'm, I'm not writing, I'm typing. I'm doing this on my keyboard.
[they:] You have to type this in that RUN window. Beside OPEN, ok? What...you delete, make it blank again.

[me:] Ok, bee el A en kay...what comes up next? [11 seconds pause] I am ready...
[they:] So you delete whatever you have written, ok? Make it blank.

[me:] Yes, ok.
[they:] Now...sir, you have to type in, it's double you, double you, double you, dot...

[me:] Oh, double you, dee oh you bee el E, you.
[they:] Yes. Type it.

[me:] Ok, double you, dee oh you bee el E, why oh you...ok.
[they:] Sir, I'll just ask you, only one question. Ok?

[me:] Yes.
[they:] And you have to give me only one answer. Straight away, ok?

[me:] Ok.
[they:] And are you ready for the question...[my Hold music 10 seconds, from X-Lite software telephone from Counterpath Corp.]

[me:] Hello?
[they:] Yeah, so, I think I spoke to your for around uh tree [sic] to four minutes. You wasted my time, you wasted your time. Ok, and I know you are a technical person because the moment you started talking to me, I understood, ok. Bye sir. [pause] You have to say anything?

[me:] Um...
[they:] I know you don't have any explanations to give me, bye sir.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Caller name: Alias Scott Jones the Indian

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Called claiming to be from Microsoft and claiming there was a problem with my Windows PC (I own a Mac). A friend has had the same scam call from another Indian man claiming the same thing. I asked for his name and after pushing him for a last name , the Indian gentleman came up with the name "Scott Jones". They point blank refused giving a number to call them back, a friend who asked was given a number that was bogus. If you carry on with the call they will direct you to a web site that will attempt to load a "trojan" program to take control of your pc. They may ask you to give credit card details. If that doesn't work (My friends virus checker stopped their trojan) they will then talk you through loading remote control software onto your PC (Team Viewer in this particular case) so that they can take over your PC and no doubt clean out your bank account, or commit other fraud. I've heard of two other people facing this exact same scam. Sadly many people will lose their life savings to these crooks. Take the time to get the web site they try to direct you too, don't necessarily visit it, but write it down, and lay a formal complaint with whoever hosts the site. You can find out that information by running a "Whois" on the domain name. Its a hassle, but if everyone does that, then its a hassle for them to keep generating a new fraud site too. These guys must be causing untold misery to so many people.

I hung up. This is the second call from this operation. The first time he called, he said that he wanted to talk to me about something to do with my computer, I asked which one? He didn't specify. I told him DO NOT CALL BACK. Apparently he didn't understand English any better than he could speak it.

Call at around 6:30 pm, Jan 22. Indian fellow claimed to be from Microsoft and wanted to know if I was the primary user of my computer. When I pressed him for who he was he got angry, then said "I want to f**k your a*s."

Caller name: Said he's from Microsoft Windows Corporation

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Got a call from this number at 8:30 p.m. last night. Foreign accented guy said he's from Microsoft Windows Corporation and that my Microsoft Windows program was sending them messages that my computer is trying to download malicious files and that my computer is at risk. I asked him to give me the name & address associated with my account and it's scary, but he actually knew my name and complete address! Knowing that I have a very expensive and up to date virus program running on my computer that scans several times a day, I knew this guys wasn't for real! He had such a heavy accent that I could hardly understand him. I asked him for a number where I could call him back and he said there's no phone number because he's calling me from online. I told him to call me back tomorrow night..........well, he called again TODAY with the same scam, but he gave me a different name this time. So.....

HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE NEED TO DO WHEN YOU GET THESE TYPE OF PHONE CALLS:

(1) Go to the Office of Attorney General (in your home state--do a google search for the phone number/website address) to file a complaint if you get ANY phone scam calls!!!

(2) Also call the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-382-4357 and file a report with them over the phone.

People MUST report these calls in order for something to be done about them....... they cannot bust these scums unless we report them!

This number calls my office all the time asking to speak with the owner. As soon as I say the Owner does not take solicitation calls I get hung up on. How RUDE!!!!

Received a phone call from this number with a person demanding I follow certain steps to give them access to the computer. Said Windows had detected an error on their worldwide servers coming from my computer. When I asked for his name and supervisor he just repeated claim that he was calling from Windows. When I asked for an email he argued that I was wasting time and to give him access immediately.

Call me any time of the day or night! I have had calls as early as 4:30 am and as late as midnight!! I'm so sick of these jerks. WHY should we have to pay to block these unwanted calls??? I'm tired of paying more & more for less & less service. Some how we have to put an end to this kind of idiocy!!

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??
