You do realise that Microsoft Security Essentials IS from Microsoft, right? It's just that Norton, being the stupid outdated AV that it is, classes other AVs as fakes.
you're a stooge, a staff member working for this company trying to make them look legitimate by posting positive comments. burn in hell
you should burn. it's disgraceful how you take advantage of people like this. what would shiva think of you? i bet the buddha would suspend his/her disbelief in not harming living things things in your case.
I received a call from someone with an Indian accent. This happened once before. They try to gain access to the computer by saying they received error messages and they are from Microsoft and they could clean up my computer. I told him to stay on the line while I called my local police department to trace the call. He said but I'm from a big city. I asked if he was in this country or not. He said he was from India. I told him that it was okay, if he was for real he shouldn't have a problem with my tracing the call. He said that I'll never be able to find him in the big city. I told him stay on the line for another 2 minutes and then I'll know who he is. Then he hung up. Why do people think it is okay to try to scam someone out of their money? Be wary of anyone trying to gain access to your computer. I use a good anti-virus program and have not had a problem in years on my computer. BE WARY OF SCAMS!!!
i had this phonecall yesterday from teche4pc and an indian woman named jazmin said that i needed protection on my computer because she said i had viruses. i stupidly fell for it but luckily my bank phoned me to tell me that it was a scam. When another family member rung them back they would not give any information about their company because they did not know her phone number. We rung them back today because they were constantly emailing me demanding a payment from me. it was strange that the man just answered the phone with 'hello'.As i questioned the man he could not answer any of my questions and said that he should hang up.
i now do not know if they have instanlled onto my computer and dont know what i can do about it. has anyone got any advice?
If you really think that they are so good,how about signing your real name and if you have one, your company name. I want to believe tht they are legit but they won't give me references to call.
so did your credit card company take the charge off your card? I have cyberdefender, can they remove them from my computer? the telephone numbers they gave for technical support do not work at all. they did give me a name. I will call the credit companies as well. thanks for the tips. I do feel stupid for sure.
no.... you cant even spell thankyou correctly suppose they didnt teach you how to spell it when you all learnt english. ur a bunch of f****ng c**** get a proper job and stop scamming the people who are not computer literate. I got a MSc in computing from the university of oxford and i told the person this and they go that is brilliant but you didnt learn anything about this specific problem because it is unknown to the human eye.. F*** OFF
no youre a f****ng scammer i just got off the phone to microsoft who say your f****ng scammers go die in a whole u and youre whole f****ng scamming company, f****ng d****eads
First, contact your Credit Card or Bank. Do not be embarrased to tell them what happen. They are very helpful. Then Contact the Credit Bureau (Equifax) & have them put a fraud alert. This will protect you in the even they try to obtain credit in your name. Next, if you have a Security System like Norton, call them immediately! Their support system can "clean" your system from whatever malware, spyware, or whatever they put on there. They installed Microsoft Security Essentials on mine. Norton took this off. I can't tell you really what they put out there, but they somehow & without my knowledge uninstalled my Norton & put the Microsoft Security Essentials on there. I don't know that much about this program; more than like it's some type of program from Microsoft they use to make you think this is a tool of theirs. They then try to swindle you out of money & have some techie guy get into your computer & basically just removes all the "errors", which are not harmful to your computer; they are just reports. These people are very pushy & persistent as well as arrogant. I have also reported them to the Better Business Bureau & will also be contacting my Attorney General & probably the FCC.
What ever u have told its wrong and even i got a same call from the same company and they told me the same thing and my computer was working very slow and they had fixed up my computer . and my computer is working fine . i guess u did not understand them properly i am happy with there service
There is presently little to no chance that the scammers can be prosecuted. It's more important for you to make sure your PC is not infected with other malware besides the scareware. Don't log into any account (bank, facebook, whatever) or your login credentials may be stolen. Stay off the net because installed malware can call home and bring down more nasties. Pull the plug from the PC and park it until it can be looked at. See my 2 Nov 2010 reply to srl on page 6 of this thread.
i got a call on my phone that was #313 i called it back after i was stupid and allowed them to get access into my computer and work there scam. can someone help me press charges
I got a call this morning from these hindu people pulling the tech4p.c. and i fell for it and i want to know myself who and where i can report them if you find out please let me know.
how about we all get together and form a joint law-suit against the company. :-)
lol I just got a call from these guys as well.. Its obviously a scam.. But there are a lot of people who are stupid and fall for it.. It is probably that company hiring these indian call centers to convince them to buy their products.. Perhaps others steal information and do other shady stuff.. The people who called me just looked like a marketing scam to have me sign up for their services... I dunno how this company gets away with still being operational.. I mean shouldn't there be 1,000's of complaints?
When I was gone this teche4pc got a friend to believe their crap about virus problems. He paid them and they installed a F-SECURE virus system. They eliminated my Webroot, so took it to Best Buy and had the computer redone. Think they just want card numbers , found nothing bad. Made contact with the real teche4pc (took hours) and they sent me an e-mail to eliminate their connection. Talked to them one time after that , asked a few questions yes some type of indian voice and they hung up on me. The indians are a con, stay away.
john parker is a lying sleazy scumbag scammer shill who needs to read up on its scam here http://news.softpedia.com/news/Cold-Call-Tech ... on-150170.shtml
Unfortunately, all we can do at this time is report it, the Internet Crime Complaint Center http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx is probably the most appropriate agency. You can also join us, cruise 800notes and try to beat these b*****ds back by exposing their scams.

Mike Faulkner posted almost a year ago and it's unlikely he'll see yours. If they had remote control of your PC, there's no telling what they've downloaded. Marketing deals exist in the world of malware. 3rd-party criminals can pay these scammers to download their 3rd-party malware on your PC when they had remote control of it in addition to the scammers' own scareware. Remote control of victims' PCs is not to be wasted! Several malware may have been installed on your PC. Antivirus/antispyware scanners may not find them all. Login-stealing trojans can sit silently on your PC and they have low detection rates. The safest way to kill all malware is to reformat your drive and reinstall your operating system if you have clean backups for your data. If you don't know how, get help from friends or pay a local shop to do it. If you choose to scan instead of reformat, I suggest using System Restore to reset your PC to a state previous to the remote access before scanning. If they have your card info, you'll have to demand your issuer claw money back from these b*****ds and also get the card replaced because scammers have it and can charge again. Report the crime to the Internet Crime Complaint Center http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx Best of luck.
you people are really crazy,i dont understand what the problem with you,actully your mind is blocked.its not scam.they are giving you service and for that charging something...
I also gave access to my computer and now am regreting my decision. Has anything happened to your computer since Mike Faulkner?
he done good job on my computer its not an scam
I just got a call from a guy that didn't identify himself but had an indian accent and mumbled something about calling me cause I had malicious viruses on my PC and he was from tech support and was trying to help me. I asked him what company he was calling from and he ignored my question and told me to go to my computer and follow his instructions so he can go inside my PC and fix the problem. That raised a red flag and I asked him how he got my phone number. He beat around the bush and again avoided to answer my question. I remembered that a couple of days ago I got a pop-up about having a virus. I thought it was my anti virus detector and paniced, so I clicked on it, but then realized it was just one of those pop-ups. I told this guy that if his company was legit to give me his 800 number and an e-mail address and I will have a friend of mine that is a computer expert to call him. He got very agitated and kept talking over me the whole time and insisted not to worry about anything and that the service they provide is a free service. He was so rude that I told him I didn't think they were ligit and never to call me again, then I hung up on him. I checked my caller ID and all that came up was1-1222. A few seconds later I got another call from 1311. It was the same guy and I told him he was harrassing me. He ignored my statement and insisted I go to my computer so he can fix my problem. By now I was livid that someone would have the nerve to be so bold and insisted he give me their number and e-mail address. He reluctantly gave me #631-456-4455 and told me to check them out on www.teche4pc.com while he was going to fix my problem. I told him never to call me again and hung up on him again.
I searched for info about this company and ended up here. Can nobody stop these people from harrassing people like myself? I am not totally computer illiterate, so I figured that this cannot be ligit, but these companies obviously prey on people that don't know what they are up to. I would imagine that if I had done what he told me to do they could have gotten into my PC and get all my personal information. What can we as consumers do to stop these charlatans?
Teche4pc, you guys are a bunch of do***ebags. You've harassed me to the point that I've contacted the police and filed a report. I've asked you REPEATEDLY to stop calling me; maybe now you'll listen.
Who are these people?
if you are a legitimate business you should know that you just called me and i am on a national do not contact list. you could go to jail over this and i hope you do. scammers/spammers! :)
Don't entertain this calls and let your family members know that this are fake call and they are trying to still something and destroy something.
It is completely bull s***. i got the same call and being a networking guys i asked him first question that how did you get the information about my number then he was kept saying that from "international routing gateway" then i replied that are you an ISP? then he says no , he replied we are Windows supporter.
I asked that you can get Internet IP address detail that which Internet public IP is downloading the file but you can't get the information about my home phone number.
PLEASE BE AWARE NOT TO ENTERTAIN.
"The National DNC doesn't mean anything to a telemarketer" and "Your best bet is your blocked call list and telling each telemarketer to put you on their company's DNC" are incongruous. If a telemarketer won't honor the national registry, why would it honor victims' request to be put on their internal registry or even have one?
Charities and charity fundraisers keep calling even though I've told them to put me on their internal DNC list. The whole system is broken. I am no longer civil to any telemarketer -- can you guess why?
