I too received a call today (3/3/14) from a male with a heavy accent, said that his name was Derrek. He made the same claims listed, that my computer was infected, etc. I asked for a phone number so that I can call him back and verify his status. He gave me 703-596-1166 but said that it was a call center so I would not be able to speak with him. He pushed to call me back. I kept him on a bit longer asking how I can verify his employment and said that I wanted to call him back directly. He ended up stating "you are one of those" and hung up!

Tremendous!  Loved how you wasted their time.  I get lottery calls from lotteries I haven't entered.  I keep them online sometimes to just waste their time.  I have even pretended to do what they tell me....like going and getting a debit card at CVS pharmacy.  They call back the next day to see if I did it.  I tell them that I did and they want the number and pin.  I refuse and they go ballistic!  Or they tell me I have own and I need to pay them money to get my money.  They want to deliver my money the next day and I tell them to deliver it and then I will give them the debit card.  They go ballistic again.  My waste of time.....but entertaining at the same level.

Have been called several times from this number.  Twice I have told them I don't have a computer...although we have several laptops, an iPad, and an old desktop.  I didn't answer this morning.  Total scam.  Why do they persist?  Are there really people out there stupid enough to fall for their pitch?

[me:] Hello?

[me:] Oh my gosh, this is, this is terrible. You want me to turn my computer on?
[they:] Yes sir, you need to do it. You need to check which errors you're sending to us.

[me:] Ok, it's in the other room, can I put you on HOLD for about 30 seconds?

[they:] uh hum.

[me:] Now are there any special boot options I have to do when I start this up?
[they:] No you just normally turn on your computer. Where you see all the desktop icons, and that's it, ok? Then I'll guide you and I'll show you the complexities from my end, ok? Like which errors and which warnings your computer is generating.

[me:] Ok. Did you go to college for computers?

Now I'll be showing you which errors your computer is generating because this is a log book of your computer, like whatever activities you do, it is getting recorded over here. Now on the left hand side can you see an option called WINDOWS LOGS.

[they:] Ah hum, so you can see, errors and warnings are getting generated, in your System also, right?

[me:] Right.
[they:] Now sir, this was the hardware part of your computer, like uh Application and Systems, when they both work together, then only any operating system works efficiently and you can understand errors and warnings isn't good for anything, right, so... And now what I'll be doing sir, without wasting any more time, I will just get you connected to the Rescue Panel of Windows and then I'll be showing you the other complexities and I'll tell you what needs to be done, ok, like why anti-virus was not protecting you, what is the condition of the firewall and everything, ok?

(326) 172-0000 Live call recorded 27 February 2014 ("We're Microsoft certified, your computer is broadcasting too many errors on the Internet..." ) SCAM "fix-it"

Caller ID: "Name Unavailabl[e]"

(aso called 1 October 2013 from the same number.  I toyed with them, now they're giving me the opportunity to do so, again!)

Heavy India accent calling to inform me my computer is broadcasting many error reports over the Internet, but they can help me fix the problem. Their problem is to get me to turn on my computer.

I put them on hold telling them I have to go to my computer (I was actually speaking to them using my computer as a telephone thanks to Google Voice) then they described what to do after the screen icons appeared.

They had me start the Microsoft RUN box and I put them on HOLD to answer the door (the UPS man really did show up) and I tried to trip them up when they dictated what I was to type in the RUN box command line. They said "double u double u double u dot..." so I carefully spelled out "double you double you double you dee oh tee..." and they said "No, no!"

I continued the phonetic spelling when they told me "double you double you double dot P L U S  S I G N ..." and generally annoyed them. After I put them on hold again, they chastised me and said "I know you're really a technician...don't you have anything to say for yourself...you've wasted 3 minutes of my time and your time..." (Ha ha, I wasted 15 minutes of their time, listen to the last 4 minutes of the recording on my Spam Calls Web Page, link below).

I have received several calls from this number.. Last week they called at 6:57 am... Oh the woman sounded so pleasant but with a heavy accent... I laughed and said this must be some kind of joke because it was so early and hung up. One of my co workers got a call similar to this one where they asked her to download a program... she said okay I have (but she didn't)... she played dumb with them for a bit and then hung up...

I got a call at 5 minutes past midnight. Caller Id said name unavailable. I didn't answer. I couldn't believe a call center would be calling at that time. It really scared me. I thought something was wrong with someone in my family. People don't call at that time to see how you are doing!!!!

I received a call from them this morning and after confirming my alleged sofware license I continued speakign with them.  When they took remote control of my PC and started poking around I immediately sut my PC off.  I am concerned now that smething was done and am afraid to turn it on.

I received my call at about 6:30AM.  A heavily accented woman was calling about a problem with the compute r....windows etc.
I was half asleep but I told her the call was a scam and bogus!  She was stunned!  She asked me why I said that... told her that everyone knows about these calls!  I hung up!

Got a call from someone with an Indian Accent.  Male.  Told me it was about my computer and something about Microsoft.  I told him, I have gotten calls like this before and you are a SCAM.  He said no it isn't, I said than you won't mind me calling the police.  Oh you can't do that.  Oh yeah, click I hung up..

Just got a call from this bogus number. I immediately hung up without even hearing their voice, and I will continue to do so. Thanks to every one on this site for taking the time to put your experience down, and warn people of these moronic scam artists.

Prank Call
I received a call that showed up on my caller id: 326-172-0000 from a man with an Indian accent telling me he was calling from Microsoft and that my computer had downloaded a serious virus.  He wanted to know if I was the owner of the computer.  I told him my computer was fine and said goodbye.  He tried to keep talking, and I hung up on him.

Prank Call
Received a call from Steven of Microsoft(LOL) at 10:30 pm.  Indian accent said my computer was sending error messages and he could fix them for me if I would get out of bed and let him on my computer.  Knowing my computer was turned off, I just hung up.  Wish I had told him that I work for the CIA and I would see him soon.  LOL

i picked up. indian man asked if this is "the business name we have listed in yellowpages.ca online". I asked "who is this'? they hung up. i blocked the number. thank god for that option on smartphones. I get calls like this every week from different numbers, mostly to "update my free google listing". also a scam.

Guy with heavy Indian accent called, said he was from "Microsoft Support" and that they show that we downloaded malicious viruses and they could  "fix" the problem. He would not give me a call back number. He got annoyed when I asked some very pointed questions. When he wanted me to make changes to our computer, I hung up on him. Then I used our caller i.d. to call back, and it said the # is disconnected.

Woke me up this morning at 7:30 AM.  Did not answer.  Have gotten at least 10 or more of these calls over a few months.  Sometimes, it will show New York as the "caller" or Virginia or Georgia.  OR Unknown Name, which it did this morning.  Having read several months ago about this being a scam, I have told them I know it is a scam and go find someone in India to scam or I don't even answer.  The last call from them, about a month ago, I decided to have fun.  He told me about virus and asked if I was in front of my pc.  I said yes, let me turn it on. I started yelling, OMG OMG, a VIRUS.  Wait, I don't see any VIRUS.  I heard him snicker.  And he told me....no m'am you won't see it but I can help you get rid of it.  I said "huh.  my pc is sick already?  OMG OMG".  He was trying to contain himself and then I started to laugh and told him I was just having fun with him and I knew it was a scam, it has been in the papers, on the internet and go find another country to bother.    He hung up.  No matter,  these calls are annoying especially.  And there really is nothing you can do.  I have all the numbers they have called from.  Sometimes duplicate, other times, like today, different from the others.

I've been getting some calls these fools over past from days, and well I looked them up yesterday, and i knew what to expect. So i did as they asked and gave them a IP, twice. 72.21.81.85 then 70.183.191.138   .  They chuckled and said a few choice words, and i said the same and hung up. I thought it was hilarious giving the source of the IP's.
Its good to be prepared!
