I get at least 1-4 calls a day from these people, I live in canada and have no clue what this is all about. There is nobody ever on the line, just a click and they hang up....I hate these kind of calls...

Got a call from this number today saying that I had been reported by my ISP as having a virus on my computer. I basically told the "nice gentleman" from India who was of course based out of TX and calling form New York......that I had all the virus protection that I needed and I was pretty sure that my ISP did not need an outside company to contact me regarding that. I am thinking that there is some poor guy in NY somewhere with the phone number they are showing wondering why everyone that calls him is no angry. LOL I am sure that this number is just plugged in by the scammers software as it seems that no one is getting any "real results" when trying to contact them. Thankful that we have caller ID these days.

I got the same call and they assured me that Hotamil sent them my number and I had received a virus called Security Tools Warning which I actually had removed from Norton the day before. Fun thing is they use India persons to call and we can't understand a word. I asked for their company name and it was given as PC Company Security and gave this 866-848-7571 number to call them toll free. IT IS A SCAM. If anything they are probably the ones who sent me the virus in the first place my teenager opened by mistake. Oh well, just hang up or tell them the call is being recorded and the police are investigating the calls. Good luck, I got Verizon to block the number.

I first got an email that my internet carrier said was a virus quarntined message, and advised not to open, as it would send a virus to my computer. So I deleted the email which said it contained an e-fax with two attachments. A few hours later I get a call from this number 914-579-8157, which was a man, who was trying so desparately hard to speak english, he repeated my email address, si, yes, ok, you go to your computer, yes? You find message, yes. So I presumed he meant the virus email, I said yes, and no, and hung up. This kind of call leaves you the heebie jeebies and makes you mad. The
nerve of some scammers, I hope he leaves the US soon!!!!!

A man trying to speak english, acts as if he is trying to sell you something, that comes on your computer with a warning from your ISP (internet service provider) that says the email is quarntined, and cautions that if you dare open it, that it will send a virus all through out your computer. The man is asking did you get email? Yes, no? So you say yes and no, and then hang up. He makes you mad. I think he wants you to open the email, get the virus and only HE, can save your computer. A SCAM.
So always delete messages with attachments from strangers and hang up on this number.

My wife answered the phone as I was out for a few minutes.  Upon answering, the phone "rang" as if my wife made an outgoing call.  A man with an Indian accent asked to talk to me and appeared to have my Yahoo email address.  She kept asking who it was, and he wouldn't say, just kept insisting that he talk to me.  He finally said that my computer had a virus and mumbled something else in a foreign language when she told him that she was my wife and he could talk to her.

I got this call two times today.  Error, picked it up thinking it was from a family member.  NEVER ANSWER CALLS FROM NUMBERS YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE.  IF IT'S LEGIT, THEY WILL LEAVE A MESSAGE.  People, we have to take care of ourselves.  Thanks.

I live in Australia and have received 2 calls about my computer having a virus.
The first was a man and I asked him where he got my number and he said a marketing company gave it to him. The next time was a woman, both with Indian accents incidentally, who gave me the same story.
I just hung up on them. I haven't received any dodgy emails. I have very good internet security though and intend to keep it that way!!

This 9145798157 isn't a credit card company. It's not legit at all. It's a front company formed to harass targeted individuals in the US (and UK, Canada, Australia). Google gangstalking and Gestapo and read www.torturedinamerica.org. to find out the gangstalkers' methods. There is an electronic prison being worked out to contain those who object to the North American Union and the European Union by our new Global Kings and Barons.

I wasn't sure who to contact about this but I just got a call from a guy (sounded like he was from India or 7-11).  He was insistent that I have a virus on my computer and that I should follow his prompts.

I told him that anything that is wrong will be handled through our corp..  Then I "played" along.  I wrote down some of what he was trying to get me to do, here it is:

Click on Start, then Run and type in CMD - press enter.  Then type in EVENTVWR.  At this point he was asking what my screen said and since I wasn't actually doing this He told me my computer was full of virus's and I needed to immediately go to www.pcsecurities.com.  He kept trying to get me to go there and he would help me "fix" my computer in just a 5 minutes.

The phone number was (914) 579-8157.

just got a call from this number and the woman said I had a virus in my puter that I was sending out in email, she asked for me by name and said they could fix my computer....all I had  to do was allow them to do so....it was going to be FREE!  Whatever.....bigtime scam!   No telling what would have happened if I had be stupid enough to allow them access.  Sad thing is,  some folks will allow it.  :(

Got a call from this number about 15 minutes ago. I didn't answer as I screen my calls and if I don't pickup they go to my FAX machine. The Called ID reported that the call was from:V0925012641006.

As this is not a name of any individual or company, I have no idea of who or where this call is coming from. I did a Google search and Google didn't come back with anything either.

Perhaps a scam from a third-world country?

Received a call from them this morning...when I picked up and said Hello a couple of time...heard a couple of clicks and seems like the phone was transferred to someone.  That person picked up...had an Indian accent...said something about my e-mail sending out messages because it was infected...then transferred me to someone else (who also had an Indian accent, go figure).  The guy told me that Microsoft gave them my contact information because there was a virus on my computer.  The guy asked me to open up Internet Explorer to type in an address:  www.pcsecurities.com and asked if I saw the flashing 866 number on top of the webpage.  Yes?  Then you got the correct website.  Then please scroll down to the bottom of the page and download the Team Viewer so he can give my laptop a free diagnostic.  Got really annoyed at him and started asking questions and he kept giving me b***s*** about my laptop being infected and needs to download something so he can take a look.  When he finally realized that I wasn't biting then got me off the phone so fast so he can move on to the next victim.
