SCAM, SCAM, SCAM!

Got call from a woman saying she was from Windows Support, and that they are receiving errors from my computer. Immediately sounded like a crock, so I thought I would s***w around with her a bit and waste some of her time. It was kinda fun, actually! Interestingly she couldn't seem to tell me WHICH computer was reporting these "errors" to them. Wow, that's kinda lame. Also, when I thought about it, there is no way that my home phone number is associated with this computer ... it is a computer from work, and the copy of windows is registered to my employer, not me. Bingo! Now for some fun! I wasted about 20 minutes of her time, and then finally just asked how many people she actually gets to fall for this. She hemmed and hawed, and reiterated that she was from Windows Support. I finally just told her to get an honest job, and hung up.

The web address she asked me to go to was from the "windowscare.us" domain, NOT from "microsoft.com", although they do add a "/microsoft.com" to the URL to fool the non-savvy user into believing they are, indeed, affiliated with Microsoft. NOT!

Details: She had me go look at my event log, and see that there were errors "that are harming my computer" ... and that by going to their site and (presumably) clicking on an .exe or something and letting it run, it would magically fix up things for me. Nice ... Not gonna happen, lady!

I have been speaking to people who have been contacted by the scam for Microsoft windows support scam .

Some people don't have a clue about their computers and they fallen victim to this scam and other people like myself who really do know about their computers didn't fall for the scam at all .

Its about a 50% have and 50% haven't fallen for it at all .

Treat your computer like its your life's work and protect yourselves from this scam based on Microsoft windows support .

Be proud of yourselves you haven't fallen for their scams .

Everyone one very important tip write down the numbers if they show up if they keep on harassing you and calling you day and night trying to scam you and if you have to report it to your local police for the fraud department since they are defrauding people with this scam as well .

No one can know what is on your computer from another country far away over seas in India or anywhere else . That is what makes it a total scam .

Computer errors and warnings aren't considered to be viruses on your computer its a common thing to get errors within a computers system after so many years of usage put on a computer .

Your computer could never be connected to their server all the way over seas in India at all or put out errors to any ones server anywhere within the world its self or be detected by other peoples computers .

Study up on this scam and look up online windows support scam or Microsoft windows support scam . It will give you tons of sites look at based on this scam .

Just be aware of them trying to scam you . Trap them while being on the phone and at the last minute set the trap by telling them the info you found out online by studying up on this scam and they won't harass you ever again .

Had a call from this number claiming he was from Windows Support and that there were problems with my computer. I Immediately asked him for his name (he replied "Owen") and his ID # (said it was 8003) and his supervisor's name (said it was Robert), where he worked (Windows Support).. yes, he stayed on the phone all this time answering my questions! Then I asked for his direct phone number (845-241-1234), and I told him, "Good. Now I can report you to the fraud department, because I know this is a scam!" That's when he finally hung up!! These guys with the very heavy accents must be making some money to stay on the phone that long with someone who knows immediately that it is a scam and tries to turn the tables on them!

Called stated they were from Microsoft Support and had info that my computer was hacked. Stupid me, gave them access. They remotely uploaded Windows 8 at the cost of $200.00. It crashed 9 days later. I have not been able to get anyone to speak to me since. Now, I see it is a scam. Guess I 've llearned from this.

Initially called from 845-579-0004. First said his name was "Troy" then tried to get me to run Event VIewer to remove a dangerous virus from my computer. Then he got flustered when I said I was going to get my IT guy. He then asked me to call him back at 845-241-1234 and when I asked his name he hesitated and said "My name?" Then someone in the background said "Troy." When I asked him if he forgot his name, he said he was the manager "Justin Fox" and "Troy" worked for him.

"Allen Murrey" called me asking to help with my windows computer but then told me that I had a Mac and that it needed something done to it. I don't have a Mac so I'm not sure how he needed to help me with my nonexistent Mac. I kept him on the line and looked up the phone number and found this page via google. He then told me how google "lies." Hahaha you can't make this stuff up! Then told me that my IP address was a specific address well my IP address is nowhere close to what he said... I asked him where he was located, he said New Jersey so I asked what time it was there, he told me the wrong time. Classic. These guys are trash, not even good at scamming people.

This shows up on Caller ID: Mahopac, NY with the phone number 845-600-3439. As the man with the accent was talking, I was Googling Mahopac, Windows, etc.... I was told the same as others here; yet, of course, I did not go to the computer either as he instructed. I said for him to give me his phone number, and I would call him back (not going to happen). He said his name was Alan, phone number (not the same as Caller ID see): 845-341-1234

The man had an arabic accent, advising that he was from computer support. He said that my computer had been sending out reports due to a problem. I questioned him further regarding which operating system (Microsoft),which type? (unable to determine from the report being sent), He mentioned the reports have been happening over the last several days. I told him that my computer had not been used in the last week, with the power off. He mentioned that the reports did not have a specific date of when the problem was occuring. He gave me an IP Address of the reporting computer as: 856.945.32 (not enough numbers) and a call back of 845 241-1234. I recieved this call last week as well. Seems like the same individual, whom hung up when I inquired which Windows operating system was my computer using. Very suspicious, as I don't use my landline phone for a contact on my registration of my computer.

Caller name: Something Tech ... then Windows Support

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Caller claimed my computer was sending harmful error messages and these problems are the reason for the call. They would help cure the problems, so I should get on my computer and follow blah, blah, blah. I have had some balkiness on Explore browsing lately ... so I wasn't sure of scam or not.

I certainly didn't go fire up the 'puter, but searched for assurances from his end.
Gave name of Justin and 845-241-1234 number when asked , said I would see the website and his job number and job ticket to verify authenticity when I pushed for some sort of verification. Whole thing seemed suspicious to me. Looked up this number on Google after Calling Best Buy Geek Squad.

My first inclination of this being a scam should have been enough. This was second, or third call in last few months.

They're pretty persistent, this is the 2nd call I've received from this caller. They insist they are from Microsoft Support and that my pc running Windows is reporting an error. Not true of course, I asked him to provide a company name, he could not, and what address was reporting an error (provided bogus IP address). Do not give these people any information, they are looking to gain control of your machine.

Caller name: Jason Fox

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Person claiming to be Jason Fox from Microsoft Windows Support said that the computer was sending out error messages and that he wanted to help fix them. I told him I was leaving the house for a while and would call back when I had time. Did a search on the number and came up with these responses. I called back and hung up on the man who answered. Within a minute Jason Fox called back on a different number. This time the number was 347-574-7822. When I called back a second time I asked for his extension number which amazingly was the same as my number the person who answered the phone said that they need the persons name. I asked who was at extension number xxxx and amazingly Jason was back on line. I told him what I had found in my search and he told me that you could not believe everything that you read on Google and I told him that I had read enough from several sites and asked him to remove my mother's number and he protested by saying that she would have problems with her computer because of the error messages and I told him we would deal with that when it happened. Again asked the number be removed from their system and finally asked a third time. We will see what happens

This thick accent guy called last week claiming he was from Windows technical support and my computer was giving an error message. I asked him for his name "John" and phone number. I knew right off it was a scam because Windows support won't answer the phone when I call them! So, I knew it was no way they would call me! This guy needs to be stopped!
