Just had a call from east Indian sounding guy phone all static. He had my, name, address, phone number. He said he was from microsoft and I was being hacked. Wants me to get on my computer so her can fix the problem. I told him to go to hell. I got a name of Allan Smith. From california..called from 278-533-8578 but gave me his # as 323-315-0406.
Just received a phone call from this number and an indian sounding guy said my PC has been infected by a virus and he is with Microsoft. They are getting alerts about my computer and need me to hit the Windows button and R at the same time. He tried to get em to type eventvwr in the run box. When I told him I googled his phone number the one that he gave me, and I wouldn't give him control of my computer he started cussing me out and told me to quit wasting his time cussed some more in very clear english and then hung up. Who's wasting whos time
Indian guy wanted me to grant him remote access to my computer. He couldn't even pronounce the work, "malicious" that was in his script. What an asshole.
Said my PC has been infected by a virus and he is with Microsoft. They are getting alerts about my computer and need me to hit the Windows button and R at the same time. This opens the run window. He then tells me to type CMD and hit enter. From the DOS prompt he wants me to run ASSOC and then tell him the characters after CSLID that are in brackets. At the same time he instructs me to never give this information to anyone else. I asked for his Microsoft company email address and he said they only communicate via telephone. HAHA scammer. What can someone do with my CSLID though??
After I fed him a line about not ever being connected to the Internet and that I thought he was a scammer, he called me a motherf-er. He repeated it 4 times and then I hung up. I am going to report them for harassment.
Called my business phone and said they were from microsoft and I had a lot of malicious files on my computer. At the end of the call she said she worked for best buy pc care support.
Had someone in my household fall for it. Arghhhhhhhh
They called us as well. Same story about malicious files on the hard drive. Offered to access my hard drive to clean it. What a scam.
Family friend also had these guys call. Called back and someone said "Best Buy Customer Service". Not true do not take their call. Scammers!!!
This number is calling me and I spoke to them. they said they are calling from windows to tell me there is a lot od malicious files on my computer. Since when does windows make house calls?
