Caller name: Couldn't understand

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Just received similar call. Couldn't understand the man easily even his name. I questioned who he is and why I would let him access my computer. He threatened my computer would crash and gave me a website to look up. I googled .com first and immediately found scamming alerts but he told me no, .net and there is an appearance that this is a legitimate website. I said fine but this is a MAC...and he muttered something and hung up. I guess my computer's not that sick.

A man with a thick accent called and said my computer was going to crash in 2 days unless I had him FIX IT! I told him no because I already went through this same c**p twice before and I wasn't giving anyone access to my computer again because it cost me about $800.00 for the last two times. I'll get a new computer before I do this again. The man was very rude to me called me a Grandmother who didn't know what I was talking about. I hung up and he called me back on a different number with No Caller ID listed on my phone. I said I was notifying the BB and he said go ahead they don't know anything.

I went through all the same as in the complaints listed above, i.e. "your computer is going to crash", etc. and stupidly paid $150.00 !!
All foreign accents hard to understand.

Now I am receiving emails which may be fake from some services I have like
Microsoft, Netflix, LinkedIn all with a message of similar wording -
"We detected something unusual about a recent sign-in".
They even put the above phone number on bottom of my screen so I could call whenever I needed service - BS!!!

Caller name: Adam ID 6124

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

After receiving a call from Adam & not returning it, I received several more calls. I was skeptical about being scammed, but finally decided to hear him out. While on the call with him, he gave me a website to look up. I did this on another computer while he was on my computer. Because it looked like it was a legitimate website, I let them in my computer. Unfortunately I wish I had read the comments before I let them in my computer. I tried to close my computer, but they had control of it. I wish I had listened to my first instincts, because now I don't know if I will be able to access my computer. They wanted $250.00 to fix the errors & install security. I accused them of putting the errors in my computer & told them I didn't have that kind of money & was going to report them as a scam. The man Adam had transferred me to hung up. They both had an Indian accent. Thank God my 2 in 1 only cost $125.00 & I use it mostly to play games & check FB & emails!

Jonathan told me I had a bunch of warning messages as well. Initially I pulled them up on my own computer. He asked me to try deleting them and they would not. He then asked to have access to my computer which after explaining his relationship with Microsoft I thought he was legit. Then after escalating to a higher technician., this technician went through the same problems and then told me that I can have a Windows PC services fix it for me for $99.99 and another tech fee of $79.99 and asked me to enter in my check account number. I refused and then I saw him deleting my entire desktop personal files. I shut my computer off. Turned it on 30 minutes later and now I cannot access my computer it's been totally wiped. Total scam .

Scammer once again with thick Indian accent, told me her name was Kate. Told me she was with Windows PC Support and tried to gain access to my computer. I always keep them on long enough to tell them about their sin (lying, stealing) and their need to repent (turn away) from their sin and confess it to the Lord Jesus Christ for their salvation. They usually get irate and eventually hang up. Kate kept lying and hung up the phone.

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

I doubt that Microsoft will have a service support calling me out of the blue and I do not use Microsoft Windows 8. And the service call is in heavy Indian accent that I replied the voice mail 5 times and I could not understand but only the call-back number.

They gave 727-498-0505 and my phone indicates that the call is from 727-498-0504.

These people are scammers. Why would my computer that is not running Windows 8 needs service for Windows 8?

Caller type: Unknown

Gilbert Johnson told me we have ___ as our phone service and that we have ____ as our security software that he can see.

He called my cell number. I sent my cell number to all my clients via email when our ____ phone Modem went down last Wednesday evening.

This heavy accented person wanted me to go onto my Computer and allow him to show me all of my errors. [I figure so he can take over my computer & phones].
I told him that our security software was not allowing me to do what he wanted.

He kept telling me to hold down the Windows button and he will take care of the rest.

On the caller ID the # +61-423-437-865
Not from Florida like he said!

He gave me his name as Gilbert Johnson, with company Windows PC Service out of Florida.
With phone number 1-727-498-0505.

Caller name: Brian/Microsoft Windows PC Services

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Said my computer shows critical errors and will crash. Ask to to access my computer remotely. Once he was in showed me errors that would eventually crash my computer. Then he said this could all be fixed by purchasing a 6month-1yr warranty and it would be less than what it would cost for a technician. I was pretty upset that he showed me all this stuff then tried to charge me at the end. I felt like I had been taken advantage of and now I am afraid to turn on my computer again after giving him access. It's my business computer. No telling how much damage he could do with my info.

I received a call from 727-798-0504 in which the caller said they are calling from windows due to problem with my computer. I asked for a number to call back and the person said to call 727-798-0505. This is without a doubt fraud/scam and potentially illegal.

This caller. He called me out of the blue saying my computer is having problems. Most repair people do NOT call people at random. Second he wanted me to open Run and started saying EV. I stopped. I was leary he be trying to do something to take over my computer. He gave little information to support that he is a tech support.
Do not believe him. He is a scammer

A "Windows" service call and wanted me by my computer. While I had him on the phone, I looked up the number and read off some of the many complaints against him. I regret that although he finally hung up, he will just move on to call someone else- praying on the more gullible.

Caller type: Telemarketer

Cold called to say that my computer had many "hidden errors" and was "about to crash." Asked me to go on line. I refused and asked for a call back number. This is the number I got. Hung up. Researched that Microsoft does not cold call people. Called back to share this info with "Mike." He started saying something. I told him not to call me again. Hung up. He called back! Said "I need to get your name..." I hung up. (When he initially called he asked for me by name). I called him back and my fire alarm went off! Talk about serendipity. I held the line so he could go through the ear blasting h**l that I was going through. He disconnected. I called back and held as the fire alarm throbbed. He called back 10 minutes later when it was resolved (no real fire, they think kids pulled the alarm in the lobby). I called him back and...guess what, after a couple of rings I get a busy signal.

Called identifying firm as WIndows PC Services. He agreed to give me a call back number & a name ... false as it might be. When I told him I knew this was a scam he challenged me as to how I knew it was a scam & why I believe the garbage on the internet. I hung up knowing this is a scam.

A man phoned me this morning who said his name was Thomas and spoke with an Indian accent. He claimed that my computer was infected. He said he worked with Windows PC technical support and that if I didn't do as he said, my computer would crash. This is a scam wherein they ask for money to "fix" your computer remotely. I immediately called Microsoft and they told me that this was, indeed, a scam.
My caller ID displayed the following information regarding this call:
San Antonio, TX 1-210-807-4079
The callback number that Thomas provided is 727-498-0505

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

This is a scam!!!!!! The company calling itself Windows PC Services is actually scammers using threats to convince you to allow them to access your computer before errors due to corrupted files crash your computer. Do not believe them. All they did was clear the error log. All of the other things they showed me as problems with my computer are still there and errors are still occurring - at least 63 since they supposedly fixed my computer. Now I have to make sure my financial information is safe and dispute the charges, not to mention being worried they can somehow steal my identity.
