Said she was from united airlines calling about their new reservations center. I stated I am on the do not call list and asked why she was bothering me. She hung up. I called the number back and a recording said the number was disconnected.
I received a phone call today from lady stating that she was calling from Delta Airlines... She stated that I was chosen to receive to free Airline Tickets that were valid for a year, as long as I attended a tour at their new Santa Clarita site.... She then stated please hold for a second as my Manager will give you further details.... That's when I told myself, "It's best to hang up"... I have been scammed before, not willing to go thru it again...
they claimed to be from Windows Support and had noticed hacking on our computer in the last three weeks. Suspecting a scam, I said I would get our local computer expert to look into it. They assured me they could fix it for me right then. I said no thanks!
a call from 213-271-1645 I had some guy call me this morning claiming I had problems with my windows. I know it is a scam and this same guy calls me about every 2 months. So this morning after he was done talking, I told him the windows in the bathroom have paint on them and stick and would he send someone out here to fix them..........there was silence from him for a while then he persisted to tell me my windows on the pc had problems, I repeated my first story to him and hung up.
Received call from this number yesterday. Female stated she was from US Treasury and they had grant money available to give me. She really got irked at me when I started asking questions and even advised me that she had told me not to ask questions and really got upset when I told her I didn't want her money. She too was from India.
Received call from 213.271.1645 Saturday nite 8:51pm from male with Indian accent stating call was from Windows technical support. Realiziing right away this was scam I abruptly asked "what do you want?" each time he stated this was windows tech call. He then hung up phone. A similar attempt was made by these same scammers about two weeks before from a different number (513 area code) to get me to go to computer so they could "walk me through" resolving a problem they stated I had on my computer. According to the individual the computer problem, if not resolved, could lead to crashes. Good thing I caught on immediately to their tricks and did not succumb to the trap. How can we catch these criminals and put them away in prison where they belong?
I received a call from this number (213-271-1645) today (March 15, 2014). The fellow on the other side said his name is Albert. He had a heavy Indian accent. He told me my computer was infected and that I should do something about it immediately. I knew this was scam, but out of curiosity, I decided to play along and put on a silly Indian accent. He told me to go to my computer and click on "Windows+r". I did as directed and got the DOS run screen. He asked me to type in "eventvwr". I knew this was trouble, so I did nothing and just faked it saying I followed his directions but it's caused my computer to freeze. This threw him off completely and so his supervisor came on the phone. I asked him what I should do. Should I just wait or should I restart my computer. He thought for a moment and said I should turn my compute off. And then what, I asked him. He said I should take a nap, drink some cold water and a cup of chai, in a tone to indicate he was getting ****. I said no problem, but how should I contact him after that. He said he would contact me. But I insisted that I would contact him and asked for his number. He gave me my telephone number. I said hey, that's my number; I need your number. His reply was your number is my number. At this point I told him I knew what he was up to and asked him why he was trying to scam me. I also told him he sounded like a f--g imbecile. He hung up.
Calling in regards computers - just hang up / fishing for data
Had a consumer alert on these guys. Do not give any personal information out
Called today - heavy accent - foreign - some BS comment about calling about my computer. Hung up immediately - SPAM for sure
Called us and the guy said "I am not authorized to tell you my phone number or what company it is" then he changed his tune (after I laughed out loud at him) and he said he was "calling on behalf of the state chamber of commerce" which I told him was a lie and he should be professional and honest with me. He actually asked me for permission to hang up.
Has called twice today. Refuse to answer and waste minutes of my time. Wish I could shoot poison darts at them!
Calls all the time
