So glad everyone posted here. Just received a call, and while they were talking, I pulled up this page. Same experience as people posted here. It didn't pass the smell test. Their explanations didn't make sense about how they were alerted, what the technical issue was, wanting to flushing the network, wanting to check my security. Thank y'all for posting. Saved me a lot of time.

888- 232-1509 no name we have caller ID and do not answer if
they cannot ID themselves. Sometimes we don't answer when
they do ID themselves. Scammers all over the place.
So sick of these calls.

Hope no one falls for this b.s. This is a well-known scam. They prey on people who are not too computer savvy and get them to share their personal info and eventually credit card info. Then they're ON THE HOOK...... I just got a call from this number and a man claiming to be a "Microsoft Tech" and that he just received an error msg from my computer. I'm like, "REALLY????? You're so fulla c**p" and promptly hung up. He's NOT from Microsoft and even if he were, there is no way they have ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFO on personal computers. What a load of s**t......

Caller name: some guy with a foreign accent

the callroom is in india. 20 agents pose as microsoft certified technicians but they are call center agents being pushed by the team leader to get their sale or lose their job. the agent convinces you to do pc-sharing to have access to your pc and download their automated software that will show up with diagnostics saying you have faulty softwares and you need to buy new softwares from best buy or walmart or staples.they will convince you that they have a business account with best buy and walmart and staples and they will do the purchase on your behalf, this is when they ask you for your credit card info or debit card details or checking account details. they ask you to wait as they talk to the supervisor to give you a discount. they come back and tell you that they have good news, that they can buy all softwares from best buy and that they will have their microsoft certified engineer do the servicing on your pc. while waiting for the engineer to get connected to your pc they lure you into getting the lifetime version of the softwares so you supposedly get a discount instead of buying softwares every year. this is all a hoax as they will put microsoft security essentials on your pc which is in reality a free software from microsoft, they will install the cc cleaner which is a free version that you can download yourself from the internet. they will put an icon on your desktop for 24/7 chat support. they have two so-called technicians who are online to provide support. chat only no calls as they only use skype and logmeinrescue.com. these so-called technicians do not have an idea of what a microsoft guy is as they are not really microsoft certified people.microsoft should put a stop to this callroom's operation. they rob americans with hard-earned money so they can live like king and queens at the expense of uncle sam's citizens. calling FBI people go after these crooks.

Caller name: Ann

Got a call from an unsolicited company claiming their name was Micro Tech Support from number 1-888-232-1509. Claimed I had a virus on my computer and that she could clean it up. When I asked her how did she know I have a virus on my computer she said she had just received a message telling her the computer has a virus on it. I told them my computer man had just been out a couple of days prior so I got off the phone with her and called him. He told be this is a common scam and that I did the right thing by not engaging her further and calling my trusted source for IT solutions. My computer man went ahead and came in remotely to my PC and verified that I have no issues on my PC. I would suggest to everyone to find a local computer guy who can provide service to you that you can trust because he/she is accountable to the BBB and local municipality like the sheriffs office and chamber of commerce.

David Lopez (very heavy accent) called at 4:16 pm PST today saying he was with Micro Tech Support (1-888-232-1509) and that they had received several messages advising them that my computer had been running very slow over the last 2 weeks ... that they work with Microsoft ... and that they "are here to help you with this problem". I asked what computer he was talking about, and he said multiple computers in the same house that run on the Windows operating system are all be linked together causing the problem to affect them all. I asked for his phone number, said I couldn't talk right now and could call him later. Then I checked for scam/fraud issues on the Internet and found multiple entries for this phone number (and several others with the same Micro Tech name) ... don't fall for this!

I told her I was aware of the scam and she still wanted to fix my computer. She said she would tell me how to get to the correct screens. I told her I was going to report this to the FTC and she still wouldn't stop. Finally I said I was not falling for this and she hung up. I really hope no one is falling for this SCAM!!

Caller name: Steve

I received a call today on my business phone which was obviously from a call center from this number. It was robo dialed as there was a long pause after I answered before the caller came on line. He said he was from Micro Tech and that my computer had sent the maximum amount of error messages. I stopped the guy right there and told him that we operate a secure system. I asked him if we had ever done business with his company. He just said he was with Micro Tech - then started to drift to saying he was with Micro Soft. I asked him where he was calling from...as I could hear the noise of a call center. He said "Texas". He had an odd accent - as if it were masked by practice. I told him that his call sounded like a scam and then he got pushy. My gut feeling is that he was calling from India and was on some kind of quota.....

Got a call from a woman who claimed that Microsoft had been receiving numerous error messages from my computer. I asked her "Which one?" She replied, " The one with the virus." I told her that I own five computers and that I would call my tech guy to take care of it. She was very upset and asked, " You have a tech guy?" "Of course, I have five computers." Then I hung up and called my tech guy and he said it was a common scam and that I did the right thing. to not let them into fix my computer remotely. The scary thing is that I didn't know if was a scam, I just wasn't going to let a stranger into my computer. Besides, I never gave Microsoft my phone number. I was lucky.

There is nothing wrong with my computer. They insisted on there being something wrong with my computer & said the have been trying to call me. I said both Microsoft & Dell have all my info - including my email & phone #. I knew was from another country because it took a long time for them to answer. I knew it was a scam because they didn't have any of my personal info- they didn't even know my name. I called back & again I got right though saying they were from "Microsoft tech".

Called and knew our names, asked if we were having problems with our computer. The person identified themself as Microsoft Tech Support. My husband asked which one and he said Windows 7. So this narrower down the list. When we said no problems, he let us off the call with a recommendations to loosen the security settings. I was wondering how they got our contact information and started checking the number after such an odd suggestion of less security!

Caller name: Charlie Atkins

They called me and said they were from Microsoft. They asked for (me) and knew my first and last name, and they told me I had malicious malware on my computer. The caller asked if I was in front of my computer, and wanted us to get on my computer together. The caller had a heavy foreign accent.

From experience I could tell it was a scam. If I had the time I would have got on the computer with him to see what he would do. But instead I asked if he had a call back number, and I asked who I should ask for when I called back.

He gave me a 888-232-1509 number and said his name was Charlie Atkins.

I wonder how they got my first and last name? I live at someone else's house and my name is not listed on the phone number.

Exactly same as Dave's report of Oct. 18, except that I very cautiously allowed caller to proceed as far as pulling up IE on my computer (where I already was at the time of the call, incidentally). Then he told me to follow his directions so that he could help me get rid of the malware. At that point, I hung up.

Caller claims to be from an authorized Microsoft support company and that Microsoft has received an error report from my computer. When I pressed him for details about what kind of error report it was, he could not give me any specifics, which made me suspicious, and he hung up. From looking at the previous posts it is clear that this is a scam. Gave his name as "Daniel Chang" from "Hitech Alerts" in N Loxatchee FL and his phone number as 888 232 1509.

Does anyone have any thoughts on what to do if you are scammed? My (elderly) mother who is not technologically savvy really thought someone was trying to help her. They remote accessed onto the computer for ~ 20 minutes. She did not give them her SSN, Credit Card info, etc, and we have already changed most passwords that were associated with that computer, and ended up hanging up on them after they started dodging questions. Any further assistance would be greatly appreciated!
