Heavy accent saying they were alerted to viruses on my computer. They said that my Windows program was sending alerts to them.
I asked if they were from Microsoft.
They said, no that they were the technical support division with Windows.
I said I would need to call them back. He gave me 415-830-8699 to call back, although call came from 971-217-9514

Accented individual phoned 10:30AM this morning claiming my computer was sending error messages to Windows support. The background (callcenter) noise would indicate he called from some boiler room. When asking specifics about his location was told Manchester, UK. When I started asking more probing questions (where did he get my name, mailing address, etc) from he got verbally abusive and I hung up.

Beware of any stranger or "company" who call you unsolicited and ask for private information or access to your computer!

Same as others, East Indian supposedly calling from Microsoft or Windows. I asked where he was calling from, he said Ontario, I said that's odd because it says Oregon on my call display. Same spiel as the others who posted, apparently my computer is sending them error messages. I said that Microsoft had never called me before, he said the messages were new. Definitely not legit.

I also got a call from a man with an Indian accent who said he was calling because there was a problem with Microsoft. I said I wasn't on line and I didn't intend to go on line and he after some double talk, hung up. I also he had no credentials and I would not check anything unless I knew exactly what it was and I wanted it in writing.

Male caller with an Indian Accent called indicating that he was calling from Windows Technical Dept from Microsoft. He mentioned something about receiving an error report from my computer. I told him that I did not have any problems with my computer and no error reports were sent. He wanted me to log into my computer so that he could check something. I asked him for his phone number and he gave me the following number indicating that it is their USA Helpline: 239-676-6474 I asked that he not contact me again.

had an accent, said my computer was having problems which it has
and he was from windows. They tttok over my computer and ran a scan and if it turned red something was wrong. He tried to sell me a product for 190 dollars told him I didn't have it at this time. I am taking my computer in for a check tomorrow. I wouldn't give him the money/payment and he seemed irritated and and if something was wrong with my computer its my fault because I didn't pay to fix it. he wanted to know if I had another computer. I took off what ever they put on. I don't save anything of importance on my computer. I will get it checked to tomorrow.

I live in Canada. Tonight on My ID caller: 971-217-9514 from Oregon, I got a call from a supposed Windows technician named Kevin. He had an East Indian accent. He told me he was from Windows support and he was phoning about my computer. He knew my name. I told him I did not have a computer, whereupon he ended the call. I have had this same type of call from the same scammers using a different number. They have often called me daily for 2 months. It's certainly a swindle. Sometimes they call me to tell me I have a virus on my computer.

If they call you, just say you do not have a computer. My main concern is that they have my name. I am wondering if they got my details by hacking into something.

Tried to convince me there were errors on my PC. I played along to see what he was up to. I unplugged my router because he knew my name and address. We continued, I was skeptical. We looked through
Computermanagementsystem and saw errors....Duh
Then he suggested since there were more tha 10 "RED" errors that Technical Dept. needed to connect to my PC. I laughed and said "That's NOT gonna happen." then he hung up.
That is when I googled the telephone # 971-217-9514 with TOP GOOGLEPAGES on the Caller ID Screen.

He and another lady with a heavy accent called my elderly mother. Of course she wanted to be helpful. I don't know how sophisticated they are or whether they can hack an account merely by a computer being turned on or not, but my poor helpful mother was the perfect patsy. Suddenly they changed their story and hung up. We will be watching her accounts.

These people have called my home phone several times over the past three days. First the number was 971-217-9508. Yesterday, I put that number on my "block number" list, which is a service I have available through my home phone provider. This morning I got a similar call, this time the number was 971-217-9514 (obviously same callers, just different extension. Like others, I really don't like that these people even know my name. In this day and age you have to be so careful. I will now block this new extension # the 9514 from being able to call my phone. p.s. Most cell phone providers have the same service - you can block the numbers of unwanted callers from being able to call you on your cell phone.

The person identified herself as "Jennifer". She had an East Indian accent and said she was with Windows operating system technical division. She said they were connected with the "main router" and that they could see messages that indicated that the computer had viruses. They wanted me to go on my computer so they could do something. At that point I hung up. The call came in on my cell phone.

This same Dickhead called me a couple days ago.
It came up came up "Telemarketer" with this number 206-397-1127.
He gave me the same spill and asked me if I was at my computer.
I told him I was,so he asked me to push "Ctrl" the windows button and "R" at the same time. I told him ther's no way and hung up on him. I called the FBI and talked to them and made sure they had his number.I was told they have gotten a few calls like mine.
Tonight he called again,it came up "Top Googlepages" with the number 971-217-9514. With his broken English,he told me he was calling about Errors on my Windows computer. I told him Windows does not make a computer and he hung up.

I just got off the phone with these scammers. The first call was from 971-217-9414. A fellow with a bad accent told me that they were getting lots of error messages from my computer (PC) and it was slowing my emails and internet activity down. Apparently, some 'hackers' were trying to use my ip address in some nefarious way. I listened to him babble on for a couple of minutes-- click here, do this,blah blah blah. I hung up. A minute later he calls back from 425-406-9022 saying sorry we were cut off. I listened to him for minute, told him I was too busy for this now, and hung up. Immediately after this, a private # appeared-- him again. I loudly told him I knew this was a scam and I would report him to the police. Of course, he denied that he was a scammer. I hung up. No more calls back.

Idiot!! So, yes, these two #s are connected-- 971-217-9514 and 425-406-9022. And by the way, I have an apple computer.

He gave his name and explained that he represented Windows, and there were a number of errors coming from my computer. If I would log on to my computer, he would help me, etc... I asked for his number and he hung up. Of course, I HAVE his number----"not in service, Pacific Telecom Group".

East Indian accent with American first name. Claims to be with technical department of Windows. I have received this call before a couple of times and know this is just a scam to try to get you to give them a credit card number so they can clean your computer. Just a phoney, do not respond to them. If you call the number back it will be out of service. I tried to block it, but the recorded message from the phone company says that number can not be blocked.

The caller from this number identified himself as a technician working for a company that was fully integrated with Windows. He said my computer had been sending error messages to Windows that indicated some sort of malware on my computer and that he would help me remove the "problem" He asked me if my computer was turned on now. I questioned his strong accent (he conceded he was Indian but assured me he was calling from Columbus Ohio!) and voiced skepticism about his call. He hung up on me. I notice in my call display that this number called me last week (no message left) as well.

So this idiot calls me and says that my computer is sending viruses over the net and I need to get in front of my computer right away so he can fix it. I let him give me as much detail as he could.

I then said that I do not have a computer ... he then says "why are you wasting my time then idiot?". I then responded with "I needed enough time to trace your call you low life moron ... good bye!".

Just spent 10 min yelling at them to take me off their call list and telling them I did NOT want them to explain why they are calling and asking to speak to a manager. I know this is a scam. I just wish they would stop calling all the time.
