Just got a call from this number on my mobile in the UK Didn't answer it as don't know anyone in New York who would ring my mobile
im in the uk and have received a call today from this number. Ignored it.
Just got a call from 607 pay phone call. Didn't answer.
Aaaaaaahh, not the Cornwall Police!
Harrassment. Unwanted, unknown and keeps calling. Our number is on the national "do not call" registry, which is no deterrent for this outfit. Identified as "payphone".
Still at it!
Just got a call from the same number. Indian accent saying that he was calling from Microsoft and telling me my computer was infected. Didn't fall for it!! Definitely a scam!!
I didn't pick up a call from this number, but I checked another site and it is a fellow with a heavy Indian accent, telling people that they have a virus in their computer and it is sending out emails to them. He then asks for IP address.........
This afternoon, I received another call from a New York number, so I picked it up, and it was another Indian guy. He said he was calling about my computer. I told him, I didn't own a computer, then complete silence............. I said, "Hello?......Hello?.........Hello? and then he hung up. That number from New York is: 516-746-9209.
So I'm just passing this along as well.
Foreign accent said something was wrong with my computer. In knew it wasn't a legit call and hung up

Got a call from the same number yesterday...did not pick it up...went to the machine
Yes they sounds like people from India...
We just received a call from this number, telling us we had an infection in our computer. I told them our computer is working fine. He proceeded to tell methat my computer had been contacting them at Microsoft with virus like activity. I told him to tell me what he wanted me to look up on the computer and that then I may or may not do what he asked. He then abruptly hung up..
This number called me .... ID said Payphone.....I picked up than a generated computer goodbye

I just got a call from a guy with an indian accent telling me he was with windows security - that my computer was sending error messages and that a virus was infecting my hard drive. I told him that this was very interesting, but first, please will you tell me what my name is? He seemed confused by this (which was my intent - the phone number came up as registered to a pay phone, and I know Microsoft is a big enough company to avoid such a situation.) I repeated again, "tell me what my name is, if you're getting error messages from my computer and are calling as a result, you surely must know what my registered name is."
Too bad he hung up, I kinda enjoyed messing with him... rwa
they said they were calling about my computer from the windows department...hung up after that.
Got a call at 9 P.M. from a guy with a India accent. There was noise on the line so think the call came from India. I asked him where he was located, he said, California. Then I asked what ciy and he said, Nevada. I told him I had friends in "Nevada, California."
The first thing he asked me was if I was the owner of this number then told me how malware had infected my computer. He told me to Press the Windows Key and Letter R and then went on and on for 15 minutes the steps to "cure" my
infection. Usually I hang up right away but this time I tried to keep this turkey on the line for as long as possible.
I told him I was following his orders but actually I was in bed. I finally tired of playing the game so told him
my computer just suffered a Blue Screen of Death which he caused and therefore owed me a new one.
I figure he was after my hard drive contents. Wonder how many people fall for his con?
they are f****ng indians
can't even speak in English thick accent, They are just using computer Voip and showing their number of our place.
the next time they call you ask them are you Indians so foolish.
But we are not.
After using this i never got a single call from these Mother F****rs.
He also told me his Indian name which i barely understand and told that he is an Indian but working here.
I asked him to meet my friend in NY.
I also asked him to give exact details but he refused.
I knew it still i contacted my Homeland Security for these harassing calls i received for a week.
hope this post will help a single person.
They are just fraudsters. Scams. Do everything dont pay a single to them do not waster calling your minutes too.
I had never taken a payday still i receive calls It means they try everybody and think of we are the fish.
$1 = Rupees. 56.00
As per this poor country Rupees 100 is enough to spend a week.
F****ng Indians I always hate them....
they just called me to tell me that my windows software has expired...after hollering at him about how he found out that information and after he told me that he was from 'tech squad' at microsoft, i told him we used a mac...he said it didn't matter...that my computer was infected...after which he told me to go to hell...
hi this number keeps on calling my home and telling me there is something wrong with my cpu when my cpu is brand new and if there was something wrong with my cpu i would take it in to the cpu shop so who ever is calling my number and my home they better stop or they will be trace by cornwall police
Yes, you can stop the calls! I received one, sometimes up to three calls a day from Canadian Pharmacy using this and a dozen other numbers. for over 3 years until I finally fought back! Here's the secret: Their computer makes tens of thousands of calls a day, routed through different numbers all over the country, only connecting you to a salesperson when you say "hello". At the first sign of negativity, they simply hang up. It costs them nothing! You will never get off the automated call list until you order something.
So DO IT! Be sure to ask lots of questions, change your mind several times, haggle on price. Then give them your address, email and credit card number (all fake!). The first time I kept the woman on the phone for 45 minutes. After she ran the fake card number (always use the correct first 2 digits), she desperately tried to call me 10 times a day for 3 days. Finally I answered and told her the credit card was canceled and gave her another. 3 more days of calling with no answer and it all stopped - for 3 months!!
I repeated the process, this time saying I had no credit card and was in the middle of switching bank accounts. After an hour on the phone fielding my stupid repeat questions and placing a $200 order, he sent instructions (to a fake email) on how to pre-pay using Western Union. He called 10 times a day for a week to figure out why they hadn't gotten the money before it all stopped again. 3 months later, here they come again. No biggie. I'm starting to enjoy this!
They make their money by selling to one of every 10,000 calls. It takes only a tiny percentage of fake orders to waste enough time for their entire marketing strategy to go bust. The salespeople get frustrated, make no commissions and quit. The company spends $1000 training another replacement. Their phone banks are stalled taking orders that only cost them money. Try it, its fun!
Put them out of business - REPOST THIS FOR EVERY NUMBER THEY USE
Caller introduced himself as 'Mac' (formerly 'David' about 1 month ago) from 'Windows Support' - (that they have been recieving error messages from my computer and that if I follow their instructions and give them remote access they will fiund out 'who the hackers are').
When I told him that I had a call from them before, I knew his game is a scam (calling about my computer; error messages) I recognize his voice and that my wife ripped him apart the last time he called. After I said this he told me "I am going to f*** your wife and s**k her boobs".
He said "I will come to your house when you are not at home and f*** your wife and give you 2 more children".
He said "her boobs are milky".
He knows our address and quoted it to me to indicate that he knows where we live.
Phone display reads 607-735-0870 (google search shows numerous posts and identifies the number as belonging to a pay phone in Elmira, NY)
Got call from---- India??? (accent) asking about my computer- I hung up immediately- "scam 101"
also got a call from this number and it said something about my computer and windows...I asked what about my computer and they hung up
Got the call. Disconnected it right away. I don't know anyone in New York who would call me so it must be a scam.
Caller preseted himself as a rep from microsoft and said to go to my computer and navigate through the start menu to remove the virus that they are receiving e-mails from my computer about. I knew where this was going so I told him that my computer is at the shop for repairs.
The caller from this number pretended to be from a computer security company advising me that there is a problem with my computer. Well, I knew where this was going and told him in no uncertain terms to get lost.
Calls and says he is from Microsoft and do I know that there is a problem with my Windows. When I asked him if it was about the e-mails, he didn't know what to say and hung up. Then another person called and tried the same thing. I hung up.
11/26/11 12:43PM caller id just said New York. Let the answer machine pick up no message. We only answer numbers we recognize or identifies companies we do business with.
