I received several calls from this number over the last several days. I answered the most recent one and after 15 seconds a foreign man who said his name was "Ethan" started reading a speech that claimed he was from "Windows Technical." I tried asking him questions (although I knew it was a scam) and his only response was "no problem"--he doesn't even speak/understand English. I told him not to call me again or else I would report it to the police.
this is a identity theft ring they are trying to gain access and info from your computer.. tell them you have reported calls to FCC and attorney general's office each time they call the calls are traced
Caller had a heavy Indian accent, said he was with Windows technical services and claimed to have detected a problem with my computer, it was about to crash. When I asked which operating system, he listed off all the Windows OSs since XP. He wanted me to turn my computers on. All seven of my computers WERE on! I told him I couldn't turn one on because I was busy elsewhere.
NO ANSWER ON PICK UP, JUST A FEW CLICKS AND HANG UP.
PS: They did not leave a message
First time this number called our home phone. Received three calls from this number today within three hours apart. Glad no one was home to answer. Caller ID just says New York.
Name on caller ID was Jara Jorge
calling without leaving message
Caller ID said "Jara Jorge". Caller had a heavy Indian accent, said he was with Windows technical services and claimed to have detected a problem with my computer, it was about to crash. When I said we had 5 computers and asked him which one it was, he said I had to turn one of them on and give him some information to figure it out. I asked for a callback number, he gave me a bogus number that had more than 10 digits. Then I asked why his caller ID said Jara Jorge if he was really from Windows, he hung up the phone.
A guy called from this number and said he was from Microsoft windows and someone was downloading viruses to my computer. I asked him how he knew I had a computer with Microsoft windows. He told me he knew because of my e-mail account.....?????I then told him we have virus protection and none of our computers are infected with any type of virus. That's when he switched his reasoning from me having viruses on my computer to this just being protocol for everyone with Microsoft windows! I hung up before I started cursing!
