said they were micro soft techs and wanted me to download software..
said micro soft tech said no thanks not interested then hung up on them.
Obvious scammer from the start. If you're not a computer pro then just tell them you know they're scamming and hang up. He has you get on the computer and pull up your event viewer which will show you failed computer operations numbering in the thousands. Explains how the computer has been corrupted and needs to be fixed lol. Tells you to use the Windows button+R to pull up the run command. Have you type in www.teamviewer.com. I wasn't willing to roleplay beyond that point cause it would involve the installation and activation of a remote host. He explained that they have alot of people to help and it's the quickest way to get my poor computer fixed. If I had finished my black computer that doesn't have access to my router settings I could have collected information about his IP and DNS he was coming from. One day they'll call the wrong person and they'll get played.
Caller ID says School District. It is someone saying they are calling to help with the computer. Call every day for the last 3 days.
said there was a virus on my computer,,, and I needed to fix it- hung up!
Says that my computer has a virus and he's calling to fix it. BS!!!
Said I had problems with my windows software which I don't have. Loads of c**p and we should not have to put up with it.
Aboo wanted something but I couldn't understand him so I hung up. When he called back I told him I was going to hunt him and his wife and his kids and do VERY bad things to them all!
called my phone 6 times across a 1 1/2 weeks, claiming to have a "WAL-MART gift card voucher." BEWARE OF THIS NEW SCAM!!!
A man with an Indian accent told me he was calling from Microsoft and asked me to turn on my computer. I said No and hung up on him. The Caller ID said "School District". I live nowhere close to Philly, but on the West Coast in actual Microsoft country. If they needed to repair my computer, I'm sure they'd make a local WA phone call since they are less than 20 mi from here.
