computer scam call
I live in Saskatchewan and just got the same call from the same guy. I let him go through his spiel and then told him I didn't believe him as I don't have a Windows computer! He started yelling at me, so I hung up on him.........
They're using this phone number again now.
My state Do-Not-Call staff suggested I never answer unidentified or unknown phone numbers, and 99.99% of those turn out to be scammers reported on 800notes when I google search. I get less calls now that I don't answer the phone. They hang up when they get my recorder. It's much nicer now that I don't answer unknown calls. Keeps my life calmer.
800Notes should add Call Type: scammer - as that is different from telemarketer.
They called me today, they we're asking for some investment opportunities and that her boss picked my number. As I asked where they have my number from, she replayed from their IT guys... how ever, I told them to f*** off.
got a missed call from this number a few days ago. No message was left but i could hear a lot of noise in the background like it was in a busy place...not professional sounding at all.
I got a call just now, 2:24p.m. on October 3, 2013. My computer just said that it was from Boulder, CO, and when I answered, a man told me that he was calling from the "Microsoft Windows Network", and that someone was trying to hack into my computer right now. He was trying to instruct me to press different key combinations on my computer, and I asked him what the name of the company was that he worked for, to which he repeated "Microsoft Windows Network". I asked him if there was any way that he could verify that he worked for this company, and if it was a legitimate company, if there was a way that I could look the company up and call him back, and he wouldn't answer me, just repeating the instructions to me, and when I asked for his company's website, he got agitated, at which point I couldn't understand what he was saying through his accent, so I hung up.
I received an unwanted call from this number. Please stop them! It happened at 8:15 am . I could not even understand the woman with a strong accent. She should not be calling me.
Got a call from this number tonight, just before 9 pm. It registered on the caller id as "PAY PHONE".
I answered it, and it just disconnected.
Looks like the scammers are back at it, folks!
I have been receiving many of these kinds of calls from various area codes and I am on the Do Not Call List!!!! East Indian accent, calling from Microsoft and definitely wanting to get into my computer. It is a scam and I am tired of them calling me!!!! I have blocked many of these numbers but they seem to still get through. What can we possibly do???? In Winnipeg Manitoba
I got a call from this number saying that they were with the windows center & that my computer had a virus & they were going to tell me how to get rid of it ! A guy with an Indian accent . I hung up on him !!!
called me at midnight - dumb bi*** got a blasting of profanity. I am so tired of these people trying to scam unwitting honest individuals. I wished they'd f.o.
Got a call from these clowns about a problem with my Windows - so in my best Indian accent I informed him that I did have a windows problem and could they fix it? My windows are loose and let in cold air in the winter and it is very cold here - please fix my windows!!! He insists its a computer, I tell him no its my windows that are broken and need to be replaced. I keep him on the phone for as long as it takes HIM to get angry and hang up. I know this does no good; but the longer I talk to him the more money they loose 'cause they ain't talking to some one more gullible.
I got the same call this morning and I live in scotland in the UK. The number appeared 001 (303) 385-0493. Denver Co in my call lists??? So confused why a number the other side of pond would call. I never answered it though I don't take calls from numbers I don't recognise and then googled this number and this came up. I am going to block it incase they try and call back.

My caller ID showed the number and ID'd it as a pay phone. When I answered, I got a few seconds of silence and then they hung up.
Got the same Microsoft call, told him to F- off.
Who is this. I Got a miss call just now...!!!!!!!!!!!!
Recieve calls several times a week from Indian/ Pakistani sounding males typically claiming to be from Microsoft Sever Sevices or something along those lines. They always have the same script about my Windows computer sending error messages. When I press them to idetify which of my computers or which operating system they are referring to then they become elusive and say it can be any computer. More often than not, caller ID shows number unavailable but recent have been from 303 area code. First call this morning was before 7:30 A.M. and have had at least 2 since then
i got a miss calls from this number (3033850493) i just want to know about this number.

I am so scaried and he told me to that turn off the computer fast and said tell your family to stop doing stuff on the computer like gaming and Facebook or anything else. He told my dad that he will call us back when I come back from school and then my mom told me not to use it and then I was scaried and then I look this number up and asked my computer maker that can anyone do this or if anything is wrong with my pc and they said no we did not call you admire I was really scaried and and was angry and then I thought to look it up the number on my iPod and seen the same thing. Is there anything that you can do to help me? I am thinking that if he does it again I will call the cops.
I am so scaried that he said if you don't turn the pc off and Internet your pc wont work ever again. :(
I am using my iPod to do this
Do guy think it safe to use my pc
RCMP cautioning to beware of computer scam

Morinville ? after receiving several recent complaints, RCMP are cautioning the public to be wary of a phone scam circulating in the Morinville area.
The scam, seen across the country, involves someone phoning and claiming to be from Microsoft or another well-known software company. In the scam, the caller tells the listener their computer is running slowly or that they have a virus. The caller then offers to repair the computer over the Internet by installing anti-virus software of asking the customer to give the caller remote access to their computer. They are asked to pay for the service by credit card.
RCMP are saying the best way to combat the crime is through public education. They remind people not to give out any personal information over the phone and to report suspicious calls to local police. Complaints can also be registered with the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center at 1-888-495-8501, or www.antifraudcentre.ca
1st time today got call from 303-385-0493 and continually get calls (never answer any number I don't recognize) from 647-931-1190. email crtc with these number put yourselves (I've been on it for years but still getting these calls) on no-call list. Both numbers have never left a message.
