They CLAIM to be calling from Microsoft tech support (or something similar). They'll start off by telling you that your PC is experiencing some slowdowns, possibly due to a virus or other malicious software. They'll eventually try to make you go through your system registry, as well as purchase their software to help your system. IT IS A SCAM. Their software contains more malicious code than most items to be found on the average PC. They are the scum of the Earth, preying on those who may not know better. I have received about 2 calls a month from these people. I sincerely hope that other people aren't falling for this BS. I played along with them the first time, right up until they wanted me to read off some values from my registry. After that, I couldn't contain my anger, and I freaked out on them until they hung up on me.
I live in Toronto and this POS called 5 times in 5 minutes until I left the phone off the hook. He claimed to be from Microsoft Support and noticed a security error through the Internet. Our computer was hacked. He kept asking for the homeowner. I told him to F**K Off and hungup. He calls back demanding to speak to the homeowner and told him we have Apple computers and hungup. He called back again demanding to speak with the homeowner...WTF is wrong with these people??? I told him to F**K Off again and jump back in a leaky boat to Pakistan. He called back again and put him on hold and he hung up only to call back...He wore me down and decided to leave the phone off the hook for a few hours. There has to be laws against this harrassment? I only found this number after his repeated calls eventually registered this number...he was normally 000-000-0000
Said he was going to "help me with my computer as they were receiving information from my computer that it has all sorts fo viruses and malware" lol. He couldn't answer simple questions like the name and spelling of the company, how they were receiving information from my computer, what the company does - answer was they "try to help me with services" But couldn't tell me what services. When I asked if they could wash my windows he got dirty and told me he could service me. I asked to speak to a supervisor and he said no. Psycho scam artists

This number called my cellphone today. This is an emergency number I rarely give to anyone, which leads me to believe it was randomly selected most likely. Voice appeared to be processed in some way (garbled and indistinct). Claimed to be Publishers' Clearing House and that I had won 5 million dollars. Well, I don't ENTER those, so I know I didn't win anyway! When I told the person that it's a private, emergency only cell and to please put me on their 'do not call' list because I'd rather sleep than win 5 million dollars, he(?) hesitated a few seconds, then said, "Well F*** You" and hung up.
Dec 23 2013 - I received a call from this number saying he was James Phillips. I believe it is a scam number.
Call came to me at 6am in the morning, claims he was from Publishers Clearing House. It expressed my displeasure about calling so early in the morning and he replied, "**** YOU".
