User Complaints for 661-771-6568
Caller name: Steve
Steve said he was from the Windows Service Center, and gave me a web address of US-cert.gov. Stating that there were reports of viruses in my computer. I did not give him any information but he wanted me to press CTRL and enter other information.
Caller name: "Eric Watson"
Claimed he was from windows and was calling to help me solve a problem with virus that had infected my computer. Heavy Indian Accent. Tried to get me to RUN www.ammyy.com which made me very aletrt. Told him I would call him back and asked for the telephone number. He gave me this number readily. When I asked him where he was located he hesitated and then said Washington DC. I immediately hung up and searched for that URL and found a scam notice on the site. This call occured Today August 28, 2013.
Guy with thick indian accent calling from Windows support service center about viruses on my system, remote accessed, yes, I fell for it, directed me to a website for "Star Tech" at which point i refused to enter a credit card no, told him i would verify his info and get back.
Caller name: Several names
Received several calls from this number. Based on initial comments, I decided to 'play along' to see what they were after. Initial website they tried to get me to connect to was a desktop sharing software. I didn't connect, they then asked me to run a series of commands attempting to demonstrate how my computer is infected. Being somewhat computer literate, I recognized many of the commands we simply showing contents of logs and network connections and not indications of viruses/malware as they claimed. Eventually I was transferred to multiple 'senior' managers who tried different approaches to 'hook' me. Finally the last one started spewing profanity at me until I hung up. This scam has been going on for several months - why can't it be shut down? I've reported them to the FTC and FCC, not sure if anything will come of it
Caller name: Alisha
Recd a call from Alisha from this number 661 771-6568. She had a heavy Indian accent, and insisted she was trying to help us. She said she was calling from window support n our computer would crash in 3 hours. Told her we would call back as we were not at our omputer. Googled the number n found these comments. Definitely a hoax and scammer.
Don't fall for these dummies
Caller name: Jacky Jones
Said he was from Windows support Center and my computer was about to crash and if I would log on to my computer he would talk me through it. He said his name was Jacky Jones and gave me this number (661) 771-6568 and said his licence number was J.139 and said I could call it to verify. I asked him why he was calling from India. He denied it. I told him I did not believe him and hung up.
Caller name: Jackie Jones
Received a call from this guy. He told me I had a virus on my computer. I asked him how he knew I had a virus. He said he received information from a report called the international loading system. I asked him for a return phone number in case we got disconnected. He gave me this phone number as his supervisor's number, Alisa Johnson. My husband called the number and I heard the phone ringing in the background. An Alisa answered the phone and he hung up. She called him back, but did not leave a message. I asked him how he got my phone number and he said he got it from a public database from the state. He was getting very frustrated with me and I finally told him I knew the call was a scam and I was going to call the police. He didn't say anything and I hung up. I called the police and they told me to report it to the federal website of ic3.gov. I had also received the same phone call from a different guy last week.
Caller name: SAM PARKER
Definite scam of some sort. I just got a call from a guy calling himself Sam Parker with a thick Indian accent. Amost 10:00 at night when they called. He told me my Windows operating PC had been hacked or had malware or a nasty virus that was sending out bad messages to others and they were doing me a favor and calling from the Windows Operating System support center and were going to help me fix my computer before it caused my hard drive to crash. He wanted me to urgently turn on my computer so he could "show me before my eyes" what wrong with my computer. I asked for a phone number and he gave me 661-771-6568 and when I pressed him for a Microsoft trouble ticket number for me to reference he told me I could go F--- myself and hung up.
I hope someone shuts them down before their scam gains any ground.

Mr K Smith mentioned that I had downloaded material containing potential viruses and other stuff potentially harmful to my pc. He mentioned he had my phone number, name, and address from my warranty paperwork when i purchased the computer. He mentioned also that he was from the LA office of Microsoft Windows and that often they advice the public of these potential threats. i told him i would call him back, and btw his heavy indian/pakistany accent made me wonder about his last name.
Caller name: 859-817-1277
I had just clicked the upgrade to Windows 10 option on my pc. A few minutes later I get a call that still has me livid. A guy said he was calling from Windows, told me what everyone else was told- malware and spyware, then wanted me to pay $200, then $111, then $10. My gut said don't even talk to them, but I had just done the Windows upgrade... I entered a bunch of stuff they told me to, then they were remote controlling my computer. I hung up on them and powered off the pc. I'm afraid to use it now
Rec'd a call from this phone #, comes up only as Tehachapi, CA, no other name. I didn't answer it, went to v/m and hung up. I see it is a pretty popular computer scam phone call. I don't understand how anyone can fall for this type of call, either to go to their computer, when they haven't reported problems to their cable company, and/or pay money to these idiots. Before I block, I may see if I get another one in day or two and play with them.
