I received a call from High Tech PC Solutions telling me I have many problems on my PC and they got the info from Microsoft. They had me hit the Microsoft key a the letter R simultaneously and this produces screens listing thousands of error messages. They then walked me through an online chat to supposedly show me hope they could solve my problems and give me potection for years depending on the time period I wanted to buy -- minimum 3 years for $399.00. I said I would take the minimum. They wanted me to pay with PayPal. I said NO. They then wanted me to use a credit card. I said I didn't have any. They suggested I use a friend or relatives credit card. I knew as we progressed that this was a scam. They wanted ne to go to the bank and buy a debit card. I told them the bank was closed and he would have to wait until 1400 on the next day (he didn't understand 1400 hours). He agreed to call me at 2:00PM. In the mean time I contacted my local police department who confirmed it was a scam. At 1400 today I called 646-867-3751 and told the person I spoke with that I was ready to pay for the good service they were going to provide. He asked me where I got this number and who I had spoken to he said this was not a tech company, it was a hospital. I then told him they were running a scam operation and this matter was reported to the police. DON"T BE SCAMED

Hi, I received the same call and I was also skeptic earlier, but not I am satisfied.
These guys are providing very good services. I had lot of problems in my computer and I was paying everymonth huge payments to local technicians but now I have a life time warranty and I am not required to pay anything, I have a registered antivirus for lifetime and my computer was very slow earlier but now I its working very good.
Pretty much the same thing. I got a call from an Indian man identifying himself as J. Parker, who told me that my "Microsoft computer" was sending in all sorts of error messages and that I had a virus. He said he could show me where it was located on my computer if I would just turn it on and hit the Windows key + R. I asked him for his number so that I could verify that he works for Microsoft, and he gave me this #.
I also have active virus/malware/anti-spyware protection, and my computer seems to be doing fine. Additionally, my current phone number isn't registered with Microsoft. :/
I just got the same call. I called the number back and the man that answered said he'd call me back because he was on the other line. The name I got was Arnold Down, employee number EC1413. Hope he doesn't do something with my cell phone number now...
I received a call from 'Philip Morris' with a thick Indian accent. He was calling from Global IT and was 'getting notifications and error messages from my Microsoft computer'. We receive calls working this same gig at least twice a week. Philip Morris, Jack Smith and countless other normal sounding names however I can barely understand what they want but it is clear that they should not get anything.
Today, 'Philip' said that since all my computers share the same internet service that I could unplug it and then follow his directions to make me feel safer. Sorry Philip, but I don't just follow the directions of a no name person that calls my phone.
I also asked Philip how he could get all these error messages when each computer has active anti-virus programs and in fact each computer runs a different anti-virus program and none of these programs can catch or flag these issues??
He gave an address I could not understand and he also shared a number of 646-867-3751 so I could call him and he could show me he was real. He said he will be waiting for my call....Thanks Philip
