Window technical support scammer. They will tell you a lie abut yoru computer sending them signals to warn you about a virus, hoping you are naive about using a computer. They will try to offer to fix this problem through remote controlling access which you need to help them get by changing setting to allow them in. They are stupid and will get quite angry if you pretend to do what they say and then at the end tell them you must not have done it right.

Fake window Microsoft scam. They are actually trying to mislead you about having helped you fix a fake virus infection so you will trust them and buy extended technical support from with a 1 to 9 year contract often for hundreds of dollars to "stop this from happening again." All fake and the FTC and US government are looking o stop this.

Indian scammers faking to be located at Microsoft and that warnings are showing up on their computers about a virus infection. When you ask them what your ip address is then and even what phone number they just called or your name (all should be on a record if they are calling with warnings on a computer) then they hang up. Obviously all a scripted organized criminal scam operation.

I am continually getting calls from 'Unknown" numbers or from this 987 area code regarding a virus on my computer. The call center person states my address and says I have virus they would like to help me get rid of. They claim to be with Microsoft. They get very angry and scream and yell threats before hanging up if I do not go along with scam.

Yes, this is scam to gain control of your computer (ransomware). I have gotten at least 30 of these calls from an Indian boiler room, from various numbers. The latest iteration is one where they want you to visit a site called stopcontrol.com (presumably on which runs a Java app to take over your system). When you do a whois search of that url, you find that the identity of the owner is buried under at least two layers protection. This screams SCAM, SCAM, SCAM.

They called again today after not calling for about a year. They say the computer sending them messages and I should go to my computer to fix it. 1st time I told them my husband is a computer geek and he can fix it and I live in Microsoftville where all my neighbors work for Microsoft. I'll get one of them. Frustrated they hung up but called back. So this time I told them Bill Gates was my neighbor and I would have him fix it. They did not know who Bill Gates was! I told them I would take care of the problem my self.They were not happy that I would not go to my computer. The third time they call I tell them they must have the wrong number because I do not own a computer! So they haven't called for about a year or I just didn't answer. They called today I googled their number and looks like they are still active.

He instated that he could help me. I told him that I don't know anything about a computer, but if he would give me his number, I would have my IT man call him and they can work out the problem. I was surprised, he gave me a number, but there is no answer there. The number he gave me is 347-227-7600.

Same windows "you have a problem with your computer" scammers.

I had a 7 minute chat with him that he can be a better person. I was very civil and pleasant sounding. I stated that at least drug dealers and pimps provide a product that their customer wants. You are stealing from people who don't know better and don't have the money. That I truly hoped he didn't realize his service was a scam but I assured him it was a scam and he should quit his job and get honest employment. I asked "Him how can you live with himself?" and "How can you sleep at night?" I'm amazed he let me keep him on the phone so long.

He went on some more and I just told him that I had no idea what he was talking about. I said my computer was unplugged and being stored. He asked me to log onto my computer, I said I could not as it is not plugged in. I thought it was a scam or prank call. Appears that it was a scam.

I was first called by a male, told me he was with my IT department. I told him I did not have an IT dept. He insured me that I did and started to tell me about warnings my computer was sending out. He wanted me to reset my computer settings, etc. I told him no, we argued a bit and he eventually asked me what he should've said differently to get me to comply. We both laughed and I hung up. The second time I was called, a few months later, was by a female. She gave me the same story and I informed her, I don't have a Windows based computer, I have a UNIX based computer. That's partially true, I do have a UNIX-based computer in my home. She was stymied, a few seconds later said she would correct their records and we hung up. I haven't been called for about seven or eight months and that call came in today.

I told her we have a Geek Squad membership,and then asked 'since when?' She said "Six months ago". I said "no we don't", then pressed the # sign down own the phone for about a good 20 seconds and disconnected the call. About two weeks ago, I did file a complaint with the FTC, on behalf of my elderly parent, whom these scumbags seem to primarily prey upon, due to memory loss issues and lack of technical experience.

These guys never give up.
They always think the next call will succeed because many people have fallen for their line and send money thinking it'll save them from a virus attack... which, of course is completely wrong and a waste of their money.
The phone company claims they don't have the authority to block these calls. The FTC and the FCC say they have all the authority they need.
'Seems to me the phone companies are complicit, as they continue to allow these crooks to make long-distance international calls using "invalid" phone numbers. Strange that these numbers are blocked from reverse lookup by irate innocent US victims, but not blocked from continued use by the crooks!! Then the Feds say they're helpless to make anything happen without cooperation from the phone companies. So nobody's able to take action and the US public simply had to put up with constant harassment from idiots trying to rip them off!! Disgusting that we have such wimps in charge!
