someone else put in a wrong phone number or have a typo or old number in their account that perhaps they had before you. l
calm down its not about you. and you aren't being attacked. if you needed your account this is the most convenient way to retrieve it and if you ever forgot a password you would know that. chill. no one is trying to be 'the man' and single you out. wow. paranoia will destroy ya,.
its microsoft --not a chat app. someone is probably trying to access their old account and can't recall their number there. it could be whoever used your number prior to issuing before you. lf you have a microsoft account go to their site and get a number or email to contact them to explain what is happening and to make sure your service is secure. that should take care of it.
YEP ITS MICROSOFT WITH CODE FOR PASSWORD RESET.
please send it meassage
Someone asked for a verification code to reset their Gmail account and obviously gave your number either by accident or ......
same experience as megaroo above; my number is list and i've had it for a long time however there is NO reason for the call. best guess: prank
Ths number called me twice I didnt answered the next morning I text them who they are... No answer... The really strange thing is I am from switzerland and this call from Californa the USA ....
f*** you a***ole
I got call at 6:06 AM 5/28/14
Yahoo calling with a verification code
same thing, no advisement nor annoncement just a 5 numbers code
RE: 714-868-0120, I can absolutely beyond a doubt can tell you the answer: My Microsoft Hotmail account was blocked, (probably some hacker trying to steal my info)...To unblock my account, Microsoft needs you to enter your phone number and they will send you a pin code number, (to enter into your account and unblock it)...Microsoft sent me my pin code from this number. I know for sure, because I just did it yesterday. After reading the above information, it sounds like other companies are using this verification service as well...I guarantee this to be the absolute truth, so help me GOD.
12:35am I get a text msg with a verification code for an old email address I used to have a few years ago. Just as soon as I closed the text msg, my phone rings. I don't know this number so I don't answer it. It left a voicemail of only a single chime sound. They best not do it anymore.
Got a call at 5:20 am eastern time. " this is yahoo with your verification code. Your number is xxxx" then they did the little yahoooooo jingle then hung up. The number the called is unlisted and I did not have that phone when I set up my email. Definitely a scam. How do you stop these calls?
I had to "confirm" my Microsoft account. When Microsoft called to give me a confirmation number, this is the number they called from. They just give you a five-digit code so you can enter it into Microsoft's system (Hotmail, Outlook.com, etc.) to confirm your identity.
On a side note, everyone is so eager to get a cellphone number... Microsoft, Yahoo, Google... in order to "confirm" who you are by calling or texting you. I thought the great thing about the Internet was anonymity! I smell an NSA rat... and I'm not being paranoid. Microsoft has been complicit in the past.
I had forgotten about having to reset my password until I read about Microsoft here. I did request a password change and you do receive a verification code via phone call by automated system in order to do so. This was a legitimate call from Microsoft. My call came very late at night, but that is exactly when I requested my password reset. No problem here.
Got a call around 11: 35 p.m. with a verification code from Yahoo. Got another call a few minutes later. I haven't asked for any verification. Completely out of the blue.
This is a Microsoft account recovery verification number. If you lose your outllook password and select call me for verification code this is the number that its dialed from.
They just called me at 6:34 am. I never requested any changes. Its Aggravating to say the least.
I got a call from this nnumber and it gave me a verification code
Caller called at 5:43 am sat morning as I was trying to make computer security changes on my ipad my account has been violated and all my id has been stolen I do think this is related. Have sent over original complaint to FBI division of internet crimes
again a1324059457 and 13234059588 same person this time from from a Jessie adelson called to save this number....I think its a bug
I requested a code from yahoo.com mail and a 714-868-0120 responded and with a persons name why? name of Jose Bohl
why a name of some who is not real gives you a code is this a bug.
You are wrong!
I never asked anyone to call me with any code!-However they did!
i didn't even heard the numbers!
The word I heard was 'verification".
By the way: They called me at 9.37 PM.
I got 3 calls from this number while setting up my new computer. I had to go through Dell, and get all my stuff re-arranged. So, I'd guess this is from an out-sourced tech support group in a 3rd world country. They are possibly getting the numbers wrong, as they have trouble understanding some of us, as some of us have trouble understanding them. Regional tonal inflections can play havoc on ones understanding.
This # called my house after receiving something on the computer.
It's a call back number giving you a code for something you are trying to do online. In my case, it was Microsoft regarding my changing payment info for my Hotmail account.
ms catherine reilly
got a call at 1-30am uk time on the 20th of april I don't know anyone in America so how did they get my number I tried to text them on the 21fst april easter sunday and never got a reply
17148680120 is hotmail.com (outlook) calling to give you a security code to access your email as it is being accessed from an unknown device or an unknown IP. You must have added 2nd level security challenge to your mail login. You can see all activity by once logged into Outlook by clicking on the tool cog wheel in the top right then Account details and then Recent activity. On mine there were more attempted logins and security challenges from eastern europe than from me. It was good to find out why and who was using this number to call us and what the code was all about.
This is a phone number Microsoft uses when you choose to receive a Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 verification code when installing or re installing Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.
