Caller name: Sam

Caller type: Debt Collector

They are debt collectors who leave very threatening messages stating that you need to call them immediately or God Bless You. They get your number off of the internet and call 10-15 times per day. Do not answer the phone when you see their number. They are calling from outside of the US as well. It is illegal to make these kinds of calls.

Caller name: skype

Caller type: Unknown

This number called my moms house and asked for her telling my aunt that he was John Miller and her boyfriend. He was very vulgar and started speaking sexually to my aunt. He did not act like a telemarketer at all. Later when I called the number to see who it was a man answered with what sounded like a fake accent. I am concerned that one of my children will answer the phone and he will speak like this to them. Every time I call the number a man answers.. I have read that it is a common number with many complaints of harassing calls and that the number is from Florida.

Called numerous times today, when answered they claimed to be Windows Tech Support and stated that hackers were attempting to access my computer and that they needed computer access to fix it!!! Total bull...be careful! I just got off the phone with the REAL Microsoft and have filed a complaint with them and they said they would investigate it. They weren't happy at all that this caller was using their name!

The person called from the number 786-664-7971 (seven times just today), and left a name of Paul, ID# 245, Support Center PC Help, and also left a number of 1-800-624-1952.

Use caution with these numbers and don't give them any information at all, or your complaint here will be a very different one, for sure!

Caller name: John

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

I received a call from John who claimed to be a Tech at Microsoft. He said that Microsoft had reports that my computer had threats for over one month. I said it sounded like a scam and I was going to report him. He begged me not to do so. I started messing with him by asking him what my name was? He gave me someone elses name. Where are you calling from. He said Walnut Hill, Ca. Sounded like he was from India. What number can I call him back on? He gave me the number 855-832-4110. Another scam phone number. I then told him there was no way he had reports that my computer had been reported to microsoft because I only had an iMac, iPad and iPhone. .I told him to remove my number from his list. He told me to go to h**l and hung up.

I wish there were a way to report these scamsters. There are some vulnerable people out there and that's why they keep doing it. There should be a law against using a US number but I can't find a means for reporting them.

This exact thing happened to me 2 days ago, The caller "support tech" with his heavy Indian accent , stating he was from Microsoft and my computer was being hacked, after me arguing with this guy for 4 minutes. I questioned him about getting my number. He said thru my IP address. Which I know is not true. I don't have a home phone. I am not stupid enough to give these folks anything, I knew it was a scam right from the start. I just wanted to see if I could get them to choke. I'm pretty tech savy myself and knew this was all bullcrap. But I feel sorry for the folks out there that don't know any better, He kept telling me to get in front of my computer, NOW. Then I told him that I don't have a computer. He then said, Oh so you are lying now. I went off on him. Who's the liar, your company. We should all take this company down. SCAMMERS. Please people don't give these folk any of your information.

Caller name: GAry

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

SKYPE 1-786-664-7971 said his name was Gary ( had a accent like India) and calling because I was a registered windows user and my IP address showed I had malicious virus on the computer. Said my Norton 360 would not detect it when I asked him on that. Had me go to the RUN Box and type in eventvwr and said see the flags and errors. Then we went to the RUN Box again and he had me type in MSCONFIG and click on the Services tab and see the stopped status and these were the ones infected. Next a MS Engineer would come on and help me after I typed into the RUN Box www.supremofree.com and download the software - its free. I asked where they are and he said Grand something New York 11375. Told him I am 30 miles from MS at Redmond WA and why not a MS web site to which he had no answer. This is the third time they have tried this scam with me - last two times the calls were from California.

Caller name: Steven and Peter Cooper with strong indian accent

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Very bold scammers could convince non-tech savvy people and will stay on the phone even after asking to remove from their call list, notifying them I was on the DNC list and expressing my anger over it in a calm manner. However he kept trying to stay on point and get me to install some trojan software to remotely take control of my computer but at first just said it's not installing anything if you "just hit run, it is not asking you to install anything".

Call from Steven at Support Plaza in NY 1-786-664-7971 (Skype number used for calls) @ 3:15pm on saturday 8/10/13
new call from steven again from same number 8/12/13 caller ID said SKYPE 786-664-7971 @ 7:12 PM

These guys call regularly for well over a year.

I have been getting phone calls from a "tech support" company identifying themselves, giving a call back number yet calling me using a skype number, they direct me to their website www.supportplaza.com and tried to get me to install software that would give them remote access to my computer and claiming they are microsoft certified technicians hired by microsoft to make these calls to windows genuine users who have computers that are sending messages to their computers that mine has been compromised with viruses and malware. I tell them I have antivirus software and they said it is disabled and not working, they tell me to look at processes running on my computer and act out a roll saying "oh my gosh, that is bad your computer is infected with a trojan now go click on this link" which will install their remote software. The file is a core windows file csrss.exe however he says don't believe me do a google search and click on this link http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/csrss/ which if I didn't know any better could be convinced because it says this file "can be" used by trojans but also that it is a core file. I asked how they got my number he said they traced my ip address and their special software which told them my phone number and that my computer was sending theirs infected messages and contacted me as a certified microsoft technician contracted by microsoft to repair my computer. AND this was the supervisor I was transferred (1-866-856-4811 peter cooper) after speaking with another guy (Steven - all with strong indian accents) who passed me on after informing them I was on the Do Not Call list and asked several times over the last year or two to be removed from their call list and asked for their company internal company DNC policy to be sent to me, I even provided my address.

I notified him I am the do not call list peter cooper senior microsoft certified technitial with a free routine checkup call.
my anti-virus is corrupt and cannot detect malware or remove spyware. he wants to install a totally secure file designed by microsoft.

He wanted me to install this software to give him control of my computer to see what other malware was running on my computer.
http://www.supportplaza.com/images/softwares/AA_v3.exe

I gave him my address to send company internal do not call policy, he said he understood and would comply when asked.

Caller name: Steven from Support Plaza

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

We get calls from these people all the time using several different numbers and they usually hang up when questioned a lot. I remained on the line and didn't act too confrontational this time and was able to get the following info out of this scam artist. They also usually call asking for my mother by name, guess they're using the phone book.

Calls are always from people with heavy indian accent stating my computer has virus and sending out information to their routers indicating I have viruses which will prevent my computer from starting in a few days unless I get their support because my anti-virus software
I'm using is disabled and not working and he could show me the viruses on my computer and walk me through fixing it. I humored these guys once before, if allowed they will want you to download some off the wall no name software which is theirs, then it has a thing built in which will allow them remote access to your computer so they can "fix the problem" after you give them your credit card info.

I've been in arguments with these people many times, I AM on the do not call list, guess they don't care or bother to even check.

My last call was from Steven from Support Plaza in NY
1-786-664-7971 @ 3:15pm on saturday 8/10/13 and he said their address, company name and toll free number was as follows. I found this website related to such a company online which is also provided below. Reporting this to the FTC or FBI never seems to have any result as years later they are still in operation.

Caller type: Unknown

786-664-7971 Is LISTED as a Skype number. This site says it's a Land Line in Florida. Are they trying to get ppl to pick up using a false ID name? If a telemarketer or collector I might believe this. As a person wishing to speak w/ me : no ID listed I'm not wasting my time answering. Too many callers w/out IDs. No listing, info, no communications. Their choice.

RE these and other stupid calls. Here is what I do: I know by memory 5 to 8 tel numbers of your family, work, school. THAT IS ALL. I f I do not recognize the number I will NOT answer. If the caller leaves no message it no skin off my back. I am getting 5 to 6 calls like that every day from all over the place. Everyone is trying to sell you something or to get some info from me. You WILL NOT win Millions of dollars and noone will ever surpise you with a win that is unheard of!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyone that is of any importance like the utilies, mortgage co's, government or the police, these folks will leave the message AND the tel # to call them back or better yet they will send you a letter stating what they need from you!!!
I set my cel for 2 rings only after that the recording kicks in which is very short so noone will leave a long message!!!!
There is always another sale tomorow or a year from now, and if they go out of business there is always someone who will step in and fill the void!!!
So do not lose any sleep of the calls from whoever is calling!!!!
Read books, eat well, go to church, take a class or two per year, do not go to illigal sites on the net so you wont get the viruses, always do good, take a good night rest of 8 hours every day, be kind to other people, have a few cans of food in your car for homeless, be kild to animals, do not keep grudge agains others just let it go in one ear and out of the other for if someone made a stinky f**t are you going to stay and smell it or go away from it??? Listen to the classics like Bach, Mozart and Verdi, etc. Take care of yourself physically and mentally, take care of other people and provide reasonable help to others in need. Report any terrorist activities to your local law enforcement! Pick a charity and give what you can for this will make you a better homo sapiens!!!! Be friendly,
Be happy, respect yourself and others, resonably appreciate accomplishments of others! Do onto others as you wish them to do onto you!
LIVE AND LEAVE OTHERS TO THEIR BUSINESS unless they threaten a child, a woman or old folks with harm, obuse!
Protect and defend the Constitution of his country!!
