Got a call from these guys. Woman (Indian accent) told me that they are from Microsoft. They received a message from my computer that it is infected. She knew my computer ID#. I am a Microsoft Security Essentials user, so I presumed that they are from Microsoft. Most of the IT companies outsource to India anyways, so just Indian accent did not raise too many red flags. I was naive enough to let them log into my computer. The guy (David)with Indian accent was trying to demonstrate to me where the viruses are hiding in my computer and was trying to talk me into buying their tech support service. I started getting a bad feeling about this conversation. I asked them to leave their phone#. They left the number - 205-352-4135. Called this number and got a message: "The party you are trying to reach is not available. Please leave a message". Now I just backed up all the essential files and will reformat my hard drive. All the passwords etc will be changed. Please be more careful than I was.
THESE ARE TEXT MESSAGES WHICH I AM BEING CHARGED FOR. I HAVE BEEN ON THIS LIST OVER THREE MONTHS.
Harrassing...calls everyday at least 4x per day....I have blocked number.. SCAM, SPAM, TELEMARKETER, ETC
Company has been calling me for months. Uses different phone numbers. This one said it was a California cell phone so I answered it.
They sent me a text message with just "hello, Richard". Stupid me, I responded because I did not know if maybe one of my friends or family had changed their number or something. This is rediculous. I do not think that marketers should be able to send us SMS messages.
they called today, I ask him to take me off his list the first time, they called back a few hours later...
I have received my "2nd and final notice" for over 6 months. I spoke with a rep and asked to be removed from the calling list. She responded, "Yes, we can." and then quickly hung up. I have been registering complaints every time I receive calls from this bogus operation.
