Caller name: microsoft
I wrote the message above, but afterward called microsoft. They will NEVER call you without a call from you first. They sent me some links. This one is about what just happened http://www.microsoft.com/security/online-privacy/avoid-phone-scams.aspx
here is where to report it, go to the bottom for FTC phone numbers
Caller name: ASIAN
He keeps asking if my parents own a a computer and they DONT how ever I am an attorney and I will file law suit. Either this c**p stops or the law suit will be filed. The call is coming out of Lynwood Wa.
Caller name: Washington Call
Says he's from microsoft and he needs to fix the windows problem on my computer. I told him I'm not having computer problems and please not to call again. He has called 3 times in the past 45 minutes and several other times in the past two days. I'm on the DO NOT CALL list, which is a joke, because I get lots of scam calls and solicitation calls anyway. This is the most aggravating one recently though.
Caller name: Bryan Williams
(425) 668 9652 Caller said he was calling from Windows Operating System support help desk and that my computer was sending error notices. He had an Indian accent and I asked him his name. Bryan Williams . . . a very American name. I asked where he was calling from. He said India via Los Angeles. He told me to hold down a couple of keys that I could not find then the control key and R. It finally dawned on me that I have a Mac and do not have Windows Operating System. I hung up at that point.
Caller name: i forgot
in my opinion this was clearly a scam for 2 reasons. 1 he told me my computer was sending him a error message and he said he could fix it - my pc was off. 2 when i 'followed' his instructions, he wanted me to hit the start button + r to run a program or website. the website was www dot showmypc dot com. i told him i dont have a connection and he hung up without saying anything
Caller name: "ANNE", "PAUL", "JANE"
These people are driving me crazy! They call almost every day so decided to go along with "Anne" and pretended to follow her instructions to fix my computer 'problem'. When I told her I thought it was a scam she called me a liar and told me to "F*** myself"!! This needs to be stopped. Obviously being registered with do not call is not working.
Scam callers stating that they are from Microsoft, when I told them to remove my number he stated to pay him 50.00 to remove it. I stated I was going to report them and he whispered for me to call Obama. Then proceeded to tell me that I was going to Hel# and calling me a S###. I hung up on him and he called me right back. This is beyond a telemarketer scam these people are attacking with verbal threats.
received a call in the morning from this number and they tried to tell me my computer was infected. I hung up. They called back. I hung up again. Received a call in the evening once again telling me that I'm infected. I informed the caller that I was an IT professional. He started arguing with me... called me "sonny boy" about five different times as I continued to prove him wrong. He kept insisting he could see my computer and it was infected. I asked him to provide the IP address from my machine and the mac address if he could truly see into my system. Stated getting more "sonny boy's".... would love to meet this guy face to face.
Caller name: stupid
it was awesome, I got a phone call from this number. shortly after telling the guy with the accent he was an idiot, he started to use profanity. I work in the oil field and thought I could out-cuss anyone.it was a dead heat for a while, but I think he beat me. it was still fun. hope they call back, I have some new material.
Caller name: none given
Got the same call today from this same number, saying Microsoft had detected software on my computer that was maliciously installed, and they were calling to get it all fixed for me. When he started asking for personal information I just HUNG UP.
Caller name: NAME NOT FOUND
I GOT A CALL AT 3:58 PM, SINCE IT SHOWS AS NAME NOT FOUND, I DID NOT ANSWER. CALLER HUNG UP WHEN MACHINE CAME ON. I SUSPECT THIS IS A SCAM CALL AS I HAVE RECEIVED CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER BEFORE
Caller name: zsinfolosution
They call and tell me that my computer is sending them messages. What I'd like to know is how they got my phone number and how do they know I even have a computer. The name that comes up on my phone is zsinfosolution. My sister answered the call the last time and told them not to cal us again and hung up before he could say anything .
Got a call describing all of the above this evening. They had me press the "window's" button while holding "r" and had me type in this website which brought me to a page that I had to download something. That was when I stopped and asked who they were again and why they were calling and after arguing with them on the phone, I hung up on them and then they called back. We have 5 computers in our house and they could not tell me which computer had the virus, however, we just had 2 of them into Best Buy for check ups and had work done on them. So I know that there were no virus's. I called Geek Squad/Best Buy and they informed me that this sounded like a scam.
Called my business (work) phone number stating that my computer has been infected with malicious spyware/virus. Said they received signal from my computer thru Windows internet connection. I have never used my work # for registering any comupter, nor has the bank I work for...obviously fishing for information or access. I looked up number incoming call was from and brought me to this scamming website. Also, sounded as though there may have been dog barking in the background, very muffled and other voices were apparent.
Fellow called me and telling me my computer sent an error message, he said he is calling to fix it. I asked him are you a crook, he said he does cook at home, I again asked him are you a Crook.
Then he started using profanity and hung up on me. Please watch out and don't fall to this scam.
Caller name: NAME UNAVAILABLE
I don't ever answer unknown callers and no message was left. From my basic research this number is IMHO a VOIP spoof. Surprisingly and thankfully, at least they didn't spoof a recognizable CID name such as Micro$oft or IBM or FCC or some such. I still wouldn't answer but fear many would. I suspect they are calling from overseas in that many in the US are reporting very early morning calls. Also, from several reports, this sounds very similar to last summer's FCC recommendation for prosecution of these culprits. Have they relocated and resumed criminal activity? I urge everyone to write the FCC, FTC and their congresspersons, demanding legislation to criminalize Caller ID name and/or number spoofing, and to remove privileged status of toll-free callers. Ask them to do something useful.. for a change.
Caller name: Some Asshole
Got a call from some mook with an Indian accent stating he was with a Windows Server company stating that my CPU had viruses. After a few unsuccessful attempts in trying to validate his credentials, I heard a voice in the background stating "Shut the F*** up" before the call ended on his term. Sounds like a pathetic, low-life scammer if you ask me. Called the number back (425-668-9652) and the line had been terminated... That was quick.
Caller name: HIN-DU
East Indian dude called with the computer virus thing, played dumb and had a bit of fun and then was passed off to the senior technician. 425 668 9652
JEJ - That woman who called you was a guy, Latter called me a Mother F*cker , - Call Over_ I think he was upset that when he passed me back to the junior tech who asked and I told him I had been speaking to a woman. Enough fun for the day, Back to work.
I am very happy with this surprise.
Ben, they don't actually have access to your computer. That's what they are trying to get (along with access to your credit card) by saying they are getting error messages. They are lying, and do not have the same abilities as the NSA unless you give them the ability by falling for this scam.
Next time they call just have a little fun with them - insult their mother or whatever...
Caller name: calling from Microsoft
I have received many calls from a person claiming to be working for Microsoft and asking me a bunch of questions. Before it would call from a 604 area code number and today I got a call from a 425 area code. And from reading others comments I can tell that they are trying to get you to install a program on your computer that would allow them to hack your computer and remotely control it.
As for people speculating about the call being from India. I can tell from the accent it is from Pakistan. They have a certain lyspe when they talk. It is the ISI doing such operations making the appearance of a call centre from India so they can create negative publicity and inevetively hurt the Indian economy.
I know it sounds very conspiracy theorist of me but there have been many incidence like this before.
Caller name: Name Unavailable
After the upteenth telemarketing call I turned off the ringer on both phones, did some research and ordered a Digitone Call Blocker 10 from Amazon. Installed it over the weekend. Turned the ringer back on of the phone hooked up to the call blocker. Set it up to global blocking and programmed it to only accept calls from our VIP list and Invited List. Now we can answer our phone knowing it's from family/friends/people we allow to call us. According to the Caller ID history, that 425-668-9652 tried to call us on 9/19/2013 at 10:06 a.m. Our call blocker stopped it from getting through. It has first ring suppression, so telemarketers can't even disturb us with a ring. Peace at last!
Caller name: Not Sure (Had Indian Accent)
He called the business I work for stating that he worked for Microsoft and my computer sent him a message. He said that he was going to help guide me on fixing it and asked me to turn my computer on. After asking him what company he worked for he told me it was Instant (something) Support. He had a thick Indian accent and ignored most questioned asked by me. I told him I wasn't by my computer and to call back later. If he actually calls back I might just have to mess with him until he hangs up on me lol.
I got a call on Saturday Morning. What sorts think it is acceptable to call someome after hours ans on weekends. This is my personal time when I'm not working. It belongs to me and my family. I said I wasn't interested and when he didn't get the point I said goodbye. He did said 'Go to h**l' before he hung up. I consider this harrassment and I believe there should be some legal action available to stop harasszment in your own home.
Caller name: Richard
Recieved this call from one person who said that my computer was sending error messages and they could fix it. Sounded like a scam so I unplugged my network and followed along for the time being. Told that I was going to be transferred to another person, I noticed a couple people talking in the background. Hitting the windows button + R and typing in eventviewer, explaining to me that the warnings and errors are viruses. So I asked how they got my number? They said it was in the Windows Tech Support database. That is highly unlikely since this is a new phone number, 6 months old, on the do not call list and unlisted at that. I use my cel phone for my primary. So they were cold calling numbers. I proceeded to go on with this scam and they pointed me to Teamviewer and were going to connect me to the service department to repair my errors. That is where I stopped this conversation!! I use Teamviewer and know what it does. There is no way anyone should let someone else connect to their computer from someone who is not answering questions without knowing you or your name without giving it to them! If a person does this, they deserve to get scammed!!
Don't do it!!
Caller name: Scam Artist
Called my line at work twice. First time, I ignore the call. Second time (about 3 hours later), I picked up the line and put the phone on mute while I continued to work -- without saying a word. The person at the other end did not say a word and waited for about 2 minutes before eventually hanging up. Another trick that I sometimes use with these annoying scam artists is ask transfer them to a fax machine. That is only way I know how to return the favor.
I was contacted yesterday by people claiming that they had "received reports that MY computer had viruses and malware on it". It seemed very unlikely to me that they would contact me about this, but I played along to see what they would do. I asked if they were connected with Microsoft and they said, "Microsoft does not contact its customers directly by phone". They tried to verify their legitimacy by making me open an msdos-prompt and typing in various commands. Then a code appeared on my screen and they read the code aloud to me as if it were some kind of serial number that they knew specifically belonged to my computer. Then they made me open a window for system error events and asked me to check how many there were. (None of these errors seemed to be of any real concern anyway.) However, I became very alarmed when they asked me to enter a website and wanted me to open a link that would give access to my computer. I told them I was uncomfortable with this and that I wanted their phone number and I would call Microsoft to verify them first before I did anything. They wouldn't give it! Also, they told me that Microsoft would not answer and that there was no number for customer service. (ALL LIES.) At this point I told them the conversation was over. I called Microsoft and they told me this company had no affiliation with them.
They claimed to be a "Windows support" company. They claimed they were calling out of Albany, NY, but that seems unlikely. The website they told me to use to make the connection was www.infosis.net
Caller name: Who knows
Played them hard. asking for some 8 digit number. lead them on that I installed the program. Lots of background noise, it's a recording. Made up a plethora of numbers. They were persistant.
Spoke to the supervisor. Said some words in Greek - they had no idea what I was saying, it was a hoot!
Caller name: NOT AVAILABLE
A person with a very strong East Indian accent called from the above number saying he was from "Windows" and was here to help me with my computer. He calimed my computer had a virus. This is obviously a pfishing attack. I hope you can put a stop to these calls. I've gotten these calls many times before.
Caller name: Fahied
Someone from this number has called me 4 or 5 times in the past two weeks. Each time they want access to my computer to fix problems that my computer is supposed to have. I asked them how the h**l they knew anything about my computer and told them not to call again. The guy sounded like he was from India!
Caller name: john
calls once a week for the last 8 months saying he is from Microsoft and my windows based computer is sending error messages and is loaded with viruses. He keeps wanting me to give him access to my computer so they can fix it and when I tell them I have a MAC they usually hang up but the last time he tried to say he could fix the mac and when I said he worked for the competition(Microsoft) he hung up.
Caller name: Peter Hammer
Caller with heavy indian accent said he was from the support center and they were getting messages that my computer was sending stuff worldwide and tehy need me to sit at the computer and help them fix the problem so the computer would stop sending these messages. I gave him a hard time and a normal tech support person would have given more info to validate who they are but he kept insisting that I just look at the files on the computer and it would prove that he was trying to help. I insisted on a company name and he said etechpro and etechpro.net. He wanted my to push CTRL+R on the keyboard. I insisted on a phone number which he refused to give and kept saying he was with Windows support. Finally when I asked him his real name and not the one they use to talk to Americans he started cussing me out and hung up.
I also told him my computer was not registered so there was no way they would have my phone number. Asked him which computer and he kept saying your windows computer. I said I have several, which one and all he would say is your personal computer.
Caller name: The Idiot I'm tired off
Just called here - they called several months ago and it sounded really weird. This time just let him get through his initial "I'm calling from the windows" before replying with "Don't call this number again"
He then responded with "Who the h**l are you all" in some accent
I got the same call. I followed his instructions..or pretend to follow his instructions because I don't own a Window computer. I kept him waiting on the phone for 30 minutes, while I 'start" the computer, 'find the password" etc. It was until he realized that I was playing with him.
Caller name: V102904223300170
425-668-9652 My Panasonic system will not block this number because it is an unrecognized number - it doesn't exist.
These are bottom-feeding scumbags who hope to sucker you into giving them access to your computer(s). Don't be a fool.
Caller name: George Smith
They knew my name and said they were calling from Microsoft. They said they were getting error messages from my computer. The caller had a heavy foreign accent and sounded like someone from India. When I asked his name, he paused for quite a while and then said George Smith. When I asked a few more questions, he hung up. I could hear many others in the background talking to others, so this is a large operation scamming many people
Caller name: Asian Woman
The Asian woman asked my parents to turn on their computer so she could remove a virus. When my mother declined, the Asian woman called her a stupid, stupid, Amercian b***h. My parents were very upset by this call. They are older and this behavor is not acceptable.
Caller name: Could not understand
Got a call from this number 425-668-9652 saying they are getting error messages from my computer and want me to turn it on so they can fix it. When I refused, the man put another man on the phone with the same message and when I refused to turn computer on, he said he was going to shut Microsoft down and I would not be able to use my computer. I told him to go ahead and hung up.
Caller name: unavailable
This is an unavailable name...I do not answer this type of call but when I researched it was someone wanting me to turn on my computer because I had a virus. I did not answer the phone. I had a call from this company some time back and DID answer and they told me to turn on my computer right away. I told them they were scammers (I do know about computers ) and I told them I was reporting them.
