I got multiple calls from this number.
It's supposedly from Windows Technical Support company called "something 24/7"... can't remember.
Once it was a woman. When I asked for service in french she hung up.
Another call today, in english. When I asked to confirm that this guy was calling for Windows Corporation, he never did. If this was a true call from Windows, I would expect the call to be in french as I bought a french Windows license. I ask to speak to the manager, he replied his manager was busy and that I should call back to the number. hahaha! Have you tried calling back this number? always busy!
So YES this is a scam!!!
Got and keep getting the same call from a person that claims to be from Microsoft.. Many a day from 206-456-0661. An India accent. I told him to take me off of their call list and he said no, instead they would be calling even more. 10 minutes later, another damn call. How do I get this to stop?
Just received a similar call from a male w accent claiming to be from Microsoft, aware of error messages on my computer, and asking me to go to my computer. I told him that I do not respond to unsollicted phones calls and that if he would give me his name and number, I would check it out and call him back. Click! He hung up. Even with IT background, the call make me very nervous and vulnerable.
Just received basically the same BS phone call. Foreign accent purporting to be a computer support person. As soon as I said I was an IT person he immediately hung up. Beware!
A man who had a strong accent (possibly India or Pakistan) who said he represented "Internet Computer Solutions". Told me I had inadvertantly downloaded software that was slowing my computer down that needed to be removed (Cookies, malware, history???). Wanted me to immediately go to my computer and follow his instructions.....Didn't take no for an answer easily.... 2nd time his firm has called me and violated the federal "do not Call" list. I obviously was not placed on his do not call list as I had previously requested.
This is what I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOrNn2mI844
2nd time I received this call. This time had more time to play along. He had accent from India??
Spent time telling me, microsoft had reports of errors. He said I did not have virus but some other malware problem!!!!!. Asked if I was online at the moment. Told him if he was so well informed he would know that.
I asked for Email address to get in touch with him myself he would not give me one.
Enjoyed telling him he was full of **** and hung up.
A woman called stating that I had been receiving error messages on my laptop using windows. I told her I don't use windows and ended the call
claimed that he had received reports from my computer bout my internet...told me to go back to my computer and he would fix the problem for me...i hung up and didnt give him any info..
A fellow claiming to be from microsoft with an accent from India - I kept saying hello, hello, hello and he figured out I was not going to talk with him & hung up. I figured it to be a crank or scam call so I didn't give him any info.
