When this number called talking about malware on my windows computer. I promptly requested being removed from their list then I requested the company name - I was given some ID , then after multiple requests for the company name I was put on hold and eventually they said it was nice talking to me and hung up. Do not provide information to anyone calling from this number. Do not buy anything from them. It's not a legitimate business. If it was they would have no problem providing their company information.
Called me Jan 21, guy with heavy Indian accent said there was a problem with my new computer. When I inquired for further details the answers became increasingly generic. This appears to be a scam.
Called 23 Jan 14 at 6:29 PM EST. Said there was a problem with my computer. Recognized it as a scam call and told the man with an accent so. He insisted it was not a scam call and finally hung up.
"Andrew" from something-or-other just called me 2 minutes ago. Heavy Indian acccent. Said he was calling "about your computer." Here is the exchange: Me: "take me off your list." Him: "Why?" Me: "I don't want you to call me." Him: "Why not?" Me: "I don't have a computer." Him: "Oh, OK then..." and he kept talking and I hung up. Intrusive, unethical, and just creepy.
at 12:59 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, this scammer called (phone issued by SW Bell in Austin, TX) pretending he needed to examine or inspect my computer, presumably by phone.
Wants to help because he knows your computer does not have "security". He has too little information and will phish you for same, probably wants to infect your computer with malware or just wants you credit card info.I am guessing it is the former. With malware he can learn your credit card info, bank info and make your PC or laptop part of a system of controlled computers, a botnet. If you want to yank his chain do so prepared, do not give him any personal data, he is not even sure where you live.
