Got same call but from 801-895-0863. He said ask for No. 4, I think, and said his name is Kevin Miller. Ha. No Kevin Miller has that accent.
This uses the grammar of the Indians that call.
My dad received a call very similar to those described here. Caller ID said "Unknown". The caller with a heavy Indian accent, very hard to understand, told him that he worked for the Microsoft repair/tech division. He said that due to some Microsoft upgrades his system was infected, not a virus, but that it was damaging his computer and getting information. He wanted us to press the Windows key and something else. He was also going to transfer us to another department. When my dad called me over, and I spoke with this person briefly, I knew it had to be a scam.
When I asked for the phone #, he hesitated, and I could hear someone else giving him the digits listed here 801-512-0605. I told my dad to use logic and be on guard. Microsoft is not going to launch a worldwide campaign one customer at a time. The School of Common Sense folks.
Yeah, I could tell it was a scam from the minute I answered. Guy couldn't speak english very well and I could hear a phone bank of operators in the background. Guy said he was with "Windows Support" and it was so obvious it was a scam. Said he got my number from my computer!!!
A customer just called me after getting one of these calls. NEVER accept unsolicited calls from ANY company that want you to download something or visit a website!
The website they directed my client to was www.AMMYY.com, Ammyy is a totally legitimate, fantastic free tool for safe, remote repair or assistance just be sure that you know who is helping you and don't ever expect Microsoft to offer you unsolicited help.
Bottom line: yes it's a scam and yes anyone claiming to be happy with their services is a scammers plant. Block 801-512-0605 today.
Is it just a coincidence that those who claim PCEfix has solved their computer issues seem incapable of using correct English grammar? I love the post from the elderly woman (silvy) all in capitals with the !!! at the end, so obviously a fake. Not even someone in their 30's uses that many exclamation marks.
This is a filthy and dirty scam, nothing else. Don't fall for it. Don't give them access to your computer and most importantly don't give them any credit card details.
This is a computer scam the ask you to allow them access to your account and they flod it with spam and say your infected. Then they get your credit card number if you give it to them you need to call your credit card company to get these payments stopped.
I"m glad people posted about calls from this number. Seems like it's still going on - I just rec'd one from 1-801-512-0605 at ext. 214 from a Ryan Parker - definitely with foreign accept and same story. I told him that no one was getting error messages on any of the four computers being used in the home. I'm pretty much of a computer novice regarding "errors coming from this IP address" so lucky that I told him I'd call him back. I asked for a supervisor's name and he acted like he didn't hear me after asking twice. I will be notifying someone locally about this. Thanks for the posts. It really set my heart at ease.
Dude. I dont know about you..but thats my own experience with these guys as they did fix up my dead computer. I honestly dont know whether they are scam or not because they havent done anything wrong to me...hence I will for sure recommend them...you can keep saying whatever you want to...
You are a shill trying to get people to fall for your scam. No one fixed your computer, because you are one of the tele-predators calling people and attempting to deceive them.
Apparently you are a slow learner. Did you fail to notice that previous shill posts were taken down? Do you think replacing them with more shill posts will work?
We are on to you here. Go away. Or don't, so that your pathetic posts can continue to make it clear to everyone what you are.
I got a call from this number about my computer.They fixed all the problems on my computer and my computer is working great. I will always recommend MICROTECH to all my family members. Thanks guys for all what you do....Jason. CA
I rec'd a call from this number 801-512-0605 stating that my computer was in danger of crashing. After one hour of saying that I was concerned about receiving a call that I didn't initiate, the caller finally convinced me that this was a real danger. I said that I didn't want to have them in control of my computer they stated that I would be in control, and it was not possible for them. But, after entering the data that they asked for, they had access to my computer. In having someone else do a search while I was online, I found out that it all was a scam. I'm concerned that they have all the info on my computer, so have notified my cr card companies of what happened. So, beware!!!
I got a call about a week ago from someone with a very heavy Indian accent stating that he needed to talk to me regarding an urgent computer matter, I knew it must be a telemarketer so I simply told him that the person he was trying to reach was no longer at this phone number and to remove our phone number from your calling list.....thinking that would be the end of it......nope.....
Today I got a call from Brandon stating that he needed me to go immediately in front of my computer because they were working with Microsoft regarding the several error reports that I've sent from my computer. I asked him what error reports and what company he was calling from and he said Micotech a division of Microsoft and regarding the error reports he couldn't answer me.
He urgently told me that my computer was about to crash and that I needed to follow his instructions very carefully. I told him that I wasn't able to do that as I wasn't in front of my computer and I asked for his telephone number and he gave me 801-512-0605 and I told him I would call him back.....I called Miscrosoft Headquarters and spoke with a customer service rep. she stated that no such company is a division of Microsoft and that if there was a problem with a Miscrosoft product you would be notified directly from Microsoft via e-mail or regular mail, not be telephone. She also stated to me that they get anywhere from 300-500 of these calls a day. So beware....
i received the same call today...from brendon.... but my computer was really in bad condition...but after taking the service from them my computer really going smooth...thnk you guys....and please keep it up....

Got a call from 206-456-0661,A caller named Brandon(heavy Indian accent) stated he was from microtech and I had several problems that were reported to Microsoft. He wanted me to enter an access code 537615 to a remote server. I declined and asked what was the phone # that I could call back to see who would answer and he gave me the # 801-512-0605 and stated that there would be someone there for another 15 minutes so to call right away. I never made the return call
I really apreciate pcefix coz my computer was running very slow...but after taking services from pcefix my computer is running like a brand new computer...yhank you pcefix
I am very graceful to the company called PCE FIX as they fixed my pc problem.The best part is they are always available, as i am am very old so its not possible for me to roam around and fix the problem.These people work 24*6 and give unlimited free services whenever required. This company is Boon to me no matter what other people say.
I got call from a company called PCE fix to fix my computer though i did not believed them but after they had completed the work in my pc it's working super fine .I am personally very happy with their services.
Got a call from PCE Fix, a person speaking English with a strong accent obviously reading in a robot like way from a script. Caller ID said 'Seattle 206' -- perhaps in order to make you think they were calling from Microsoft?
Script was they were a 'service center for Microsoft' and they'd been getting alerts and my computer was about to crash. I asked for a number to call back and they gave me this number.
I was ultra suspicious b/c I'd just had a major overall & replacement on my laptop.
Oh, and the guy gave his name as T. or Tim Madison.
As I was asking him a question, he hung up.
I had seen this number on caller ID a couple of times when I didn't answer in time. I have family in the 206 area code and so I answered and there was only static.
A legit service would leave a message.

16 January 2012: A "Brandon" just called me and went through the whole "your computers infected routine". Interesting---by dumb luck---I had the local computer shop upgrade my computer THIS MORNING with Windows7 and a new Hard Drive. I just got the computer back about two hours ago. That didn't stop the "pitch" to get me to hook up to their scanners. Interesting: Brandon promised the scanners would only look at "the Windows" portion of my hard drive and nothing else; Brandon might have thought I've just fallen off the turnip truck. He would not answer -openly- questions I put to him. My impression is it's one hell of a big scam and data-mining operation. If they can't answer the questions truthfully (I ask how the weather was in Salt Lake City, and Park City----and he couldn't answer it). Maybe someone from MICROSOFT should look into this---since they use the name MICROSOFT over and over and over.
All of the above is exactly what we experienced. They have repeatedly been calling our house every few hours. We would sure like to block them but we do have this service from Verizon. Any ideas?
I received a call from "Brandon" who told me that my PC was badly affected by some hackers and it would be crashed the next day. He said he will help to fix my PC and sounds very helpful until I told him that I will call him tomorrow after my PC crashes to get help.
After I hung up the phone, he called me back to say "your computer will crash"..sounds like a threat to me.
My mother received a call from these people today. Fortunately, she doesn't know a whole lot about computers so she took their number (the 801 one), and said that I would give them a call back. They wanted me to get in front of my computer while they helped fix the problem, otherwise the computer would crash in two days. I was on the freeway so I didn't have access to my computer at the time. Sounds waay too fishy.
thanks for the service of yours i m glad to get it.....once again thanks

I also received a call from Edward Spencer at 801-512-0605 saying that Cyber hackers had taken over my computer and that he needed to get in and fix it right away or it would crash the next time I went on the internet. Windows would not be responsible for the loss of my banking information if he didn't fix it now! Told him I would call back, gave me his ID# WDS1466. Also said he would Email me confirmation after it was "fixed". The scary part is that he new my name and address!
