Yes totally crazy why do we. Get all these crazy people calling all the time
JUst more SPAM. Think they have called from different number.
call and hang up when answered by person and machine over and over
I just rec'd a call from this # 253-802-0308, on 5/8/13 @1:50 pm, Pac. time. My caller ID read that the call was from Fraudster with the aforementioned phone number. I did not recognize the #, so I pushed 'talk' + 'mute' & heard a female's voice, saying "hello, hello", then hung up. I got on my computer to look up the # and here I am. My phone # is registered with the Do Not Call Registry.
you have a computer with windows
The same people as others had described blew up my home/landline. They called 17 times. Heard them on the answering machine, one even knew my first and last name. The dopes just sit there on the answering machine saying hello.
"Fraudster" from 253-802-0308 and "out-of-area" from 253-802-0308 keeps calling.
We do not answer calls from unkown area codes.
The same; he sounds a kind of Arabian guy and I though he was a camel trader but he pretends being from Microsoft and I have pretended being seated in front of my pc which I don't have... They try to make you believe your PC is downloading some software and that they are able to help
They are telemarketers. I answered the phone once a few weeks ago (I was at a phone where the caller id doesn't show, or I would NEVER have answered it.) The caller was a man with a thick foreign accent. He said he was from Microsoft and my computer had been sending them error messages. He wanted me to open my computer so he could "fix" it for me online. I hung up on him. We are getting calls from these people every other day. Fraudster called again early this morning. 8:27 a.m. They never leave a message.
these people are claiming to be from Microsoft and have called me several times. I JUST received another one informing me about this terrible virus on my computer and that he needs remote access to remove it, asking for private/sensitive information. This is a fraudulent operation. Phone number originating out of the Auburn, Washington area. Do be wary that if they've called you, that they have you computer's CLISD (license ID) from a website that you may have clicked on. These guys, although terrible with their script, are potentially dangerous with technology know how. Be aware.
I just received a call from this number. I said hello and nobody answered. I hung up. Another scam.
yes, these people are claiming to be from Microsoft and have called me several times. I JUST received another one informing me about this terrible virus on my computer and that he needs remote access to remove it... I patiently listened to his line and then explained that i am currently enrolled in college for computer science and i know hes full of bs. I then told him that 1 he needs to get his script perfected because i could barely understand him with his heavy middle eastern accent and 2 i wouldnt give him that information even if there WAS a problem with my computer.. i got a VERY clear f*** you from him!! hahaha! PLEASE people, do not give these a***oles ANY information!! they want access to your system so they can ADD viruses, malware or spyware ;)
I received a call on my landline from 253-803-0380. Caller I.D. said Fraudster. Accent sounded Middle Eastern. Said they detected something was wrong with my Windows. I hung up.
They have been calling my phone everyday! Last night they called at 11pm!
vu que je suis quebecois et que je parle francais, bien il raccroche mais ca fait quelque 10 fois au moins qu'ils essayent de me parler :(
I agree to all that has come before. This was my third call from these people from three different numbers.
I got a call many months ago. They used to call days in a row and multiple times a day. They would call from PC DOCTOR or COMPUTER DOCTOR. They would say my computers had a virus and that they needed remote access (they didn't say that specifically but I know computers well enough that I know thats what they were doing)
It stopped but then recently - March 21 I got a call from a middle eastern man who identified himself as Rick Williams. I would not get on here and lie. He began to tell me that he had the call on mute and spoke very personal things such as "I love you, you are beautiful, you are righteous and holy" As well as other things. He then proceeded to ask for my facebook information and more about myself. I of course did not give it to him and said I didn't have a facebook but yesterday he found and hacked my facebook and began commenting on photos. I have proof and my activity shows a login from a random place in the US where I don't live/never traveled.
I tried to press him for more information about his company or self in order to report him. But I am unaware if any of that information is legitimate.
Here's the info I got:
Rick Williams. Fresno California. Age 22 Roman Catholic. His favorite food involves any kind of Chicken. I know this doesnt sound serious but I was trying to get him talking about anything or everything in effort to catch realistic facts.
A man sounding from India called saying my pc was going bad-next he said he was gay & all men/women found his to look like Seth Rogen. This must be one UGLY MAN!
repeated phone calls. i answered the first one and when they started to talk I just told them to take me off their list. they hung up. no company identified on called id. HAve had three more calls now, which i didn't answer. no message left.
SCAM, claimed to be "Windows Service Center" with a report about a virus on my Windows PC. Microsoft policy is clear: they will only call you if they are returning your call on a trouble ticket that you filed — they will NEVER cold-call you in this sort of scenario. Absolutely guaranteed scam.
Folks this is an international ring. File a complaint with the FBI, there is a tab for "Scams & Safety" where you can report cyber crime. That is the only way they will stop these guys. The hoodwinked my mother-in-law and tried to charge $600 on their credit card.
Suis au Québec...ai reçu un appel mais n'ai pas répondu...j'ai bien fait car en faisant une recherche sur ce numéro je me rend compte que c'est une arnaque...ai bloqué ce numéro et conseille de le faire
these jerks call me daily. I do not answer but I have in the past. Guy from India saying he is with Microsoft. I said I have a mac and he hung up on me. Yet he still calls.
To bad the line is all ways busy when i call him
He called last night, he sounds like he is from india man it was funny he told me my pc needed help( how did he know!) just wish i could call and bother him like he did me!
Caller: 253 802 0308
the **** need to be shot
Just got a call from a person telling us our computer has a virus on it. He wouldn't give his name. Kept saying that if I log onto my computer now he could fix it for me. Was very persistant. Had an Indian accent. Also said that Microsoft computer software was hacked last week and they were calling to help fix it. I'm notifying Microsoft.
Guy with heavy Indian accent called with a lot of noise in the background. He asked how I was doing and I asked whether this wad important because I wad in the middle of dinner. He said it was important because he was getting a bunch of errors from my "Microsoft Windows computer. " I asked which computer. He said "the computer you are using. " I again asked which one several times until he said "your Microsoft Windows 7 computer. " My PC isn't running Windows 7, so I said thank you, called him an obnoxious **** and hung up.
They called and when I answered they hung up....I think spammer yes.
I get calls from these people at least 5 times a day.
I got a call from a person with an Indian accernt telling me that he was getting error messages from my pc, he wanted me to go to my pc and turn it on, and he would fix it. He said it would take a long time to fix it. I don't know how he got my phone number.
Called me, with chinese accent, when i couldnt understand what he was saying he said he was gonna put his supvr on to talk to me. I hear lost of people in the background reciting the same thing he was telling me that my computer was p[utting out made viruses. Ask if i was sitting at my computer i told him no , Whgen i thought he hung up on me I put the phone down and he called back, and called me m....
f..... why you using bad language on the phone, this call is being recorded. i just listen and hung up andgain, and he called right back. they are bad news.
When I answered, he said Hello - I want to be your boyfriend.
I hung up! LOL
I received a phone call on my cell phone which is on the 'no call' list...the man had an foreign accent. He asked for me by name.He said something like 'Solutia Company' for dangerous attacks on my computer that I reported to Microsoft...I asked him to repeat ...he asked if I had been having computer problems...I asked him if he was selling something and he asked "why makes you think that?"...I responded that I did not believe Microsoft would telephone me about sending them error reports. He thanked me and hung up.
Microsoft problem reporting system has a popup that appears if a program stops responding...I used to ignore them, but lately I have been responding to them due to a new program I purchased...
However, the man who called me did not mention that software manufacturer.
Microsoft has an online link on their "error message reporting POP UP" and I read it completely. They do not share the info unless it is with a related company who's software could have caused the error...and those people have the same ethical responsibility not to misuse the information. So how did this pervert get my name, phone # etc...has he tagged microsofts error reports???
I will report this to Microsoft also. Thanks.
As like most posts, calls from man with accent, pause when u answer the phone as if call really is coming from call centre... Same speech about viruses etc and works for Microsoft Windows Tech Support Centre..I asked agent name and company they represent, agent became defensive especially when I asked for License Number of the Agent.. Same story from agent repeated, So I started yelling into the phone that I am reporting him and I know this is a scam so scam someone else...Get a real job you crook and Hung up...253 802 0308** BEWARE**
Just got the same type of calls from a woman with a Indian accent who asked me if i was in front of my computer...I said yes and ask her who she was and since the beginning of the call the line was bad (like popcorn) so i got a hard time understanding her i hang up. i`m in Canada
Does not leave messages. I added them to my phone reject list.
These asholes keep calling me, and leave no messages. I called them back, but they hand up. I'm taking a trip to the north west, and will take some time to try and find where these people are calling from. I like face to face confrontations.
Answered the call on my home line said "Hi, I'm calling about your Microsoft Windows computer" I said Ok and then nothing. They hung up
Have had many calls from this number and no one answers, sounds like someone is there though -- have just been hanging up -- will block # now.
Just got a call from this number. The heavily accented man said he worked for the Technical Department of Dell computers. He wanted me to sit in front of my computer and let him get in so that he can make it run faster. He said, "We have been getting a lot of errors from your computer." Glad I said no.
Permanently blocked this number
lots of noise in the background, heavy indian accent and was about my pc and they were from microsoft, caught on since my cell number and pc have nothing yo do with each other.
This person called and kept pitching me saying my computer was running slow and wanted to help me. He refused to say who told him to call me and when I asked to speak to his manager/boss he hung up on me.
As reported below, this # is now intercepted and forwarded to a recorded announcement by the FTC See also
As with the other reports, a phishing scam by phone.
called my phone, left no message..glad i have the Guru.
It's a scam to try to get our computer passwords.
I have received two calls from an organization that says it contracts out with Dell and Microsoft. When they called, they said I had hidden problems with my computer (XP7) (I do not use XP7), and that I needed to immediately let them log in to fix them. When I questioned that, they said I have 3 contracts and they were hired to service the contracts and that I have numerous hidden problems. I told them I would not do that until I called Dell/Microsoft to verify they were legitimate. After talking to Dell today and an email from Microsoft, found that this was not legitimate. I have put their telephone numbers from my caller I.D. below:
They said they are with Dell Corrections
6/23 call number is 253-802-0308 (this is an Auburn, WA cell phone)
6/24 call number came up as 000-00-0000
Tried to call many times!
These pple are sick! Harassment is an understatement! Rude disgusting when a question was asked he said he us going to come rape my daughter and I don't have girls!!! ****
Person with a strong accent called me and said that they just found something wrong with my computer -- maybe a big virus -- and they offered to fix it right now
This number has called numerous time and has not left a message. It is not traceable through various internet sites. Based on comments here, I am now warned. Thanks!!
I had the same experience as Charlie. The person called saying that my computer was downloading error messages. I was not using my computer. The lady was hard to understand, spoke in an Indian accent and seemed to be laughing. There were a lot of voices in the background and a male voice seemed to be talking to her.
Caller called Jan 29, 2011 and claimed they were Windows Service Center and said my PC is downloading virus. I was not on my PC at the time (5:42PM) of the call. This was very strange and the person who called did have an Indian accent, and hung up after I started questioning him. This has never happen before that I know of but believe it should be flagged incase someone else gets this as well.
Persistent oriental man who said he was a Computer Doctor and I had virus on my computer. I told him I did not need his help and tried to hang up. He was still talking when the receiver went down on him.
