They called my home phone demanding something was wrong with my windows on my computer. They got me a year ago. Fried my MacBook Pro. They put the virus in my computer " Apple " told me when they received it. Put a new hard drive in and it still is not working. This phone number cost me $489.00 for 2Yr protection. Police and credit card company can not do anything about the matter.

Oh I love to have fun with these guys. They can get very irate, especially if you play dumb with them and take up alot of their time. I keep telling them that I don't understand their latest instruction and if they could please repeat it, then I pretend I'm having problem understanding their accent, finally I ask them to repeat instructions again... Just before I have them ready to pop a blood vessel, I say I ask them to hold a minute while I turn off the tea kettle on the stove...then I leave and don't come back until they get it and hang up.

I actually answered the phone and caller (Indian accent) told me he was from Microsoft and he needed me to follow his instructions on my home computer. Had him start giving me instructions and made him repeat as if I was dense or something. After a while, he figured out that I was not at my computer. I was feeding my cat. He got irate that I had wasted his time. Told him, that he wasted my time, but asked if he could talk to me a little longer because l was lonely. He told me he was going to freeze my computer for wasting his time. I laughed and he didn't like that. He hung up. Hope he calls again.

This number has called me several times. As soon as he starts telling me about my computer I end the call. Now I keep a list of the tel nos. who all are scammers so that If I see the sign "caller unknown" and the number is on my list, I don't answer. It is surprising how many of them there are who want to take advantage of you. Please be careful - having a caller ID is a blessing.

i just kept asking him, how would microsoft have knowledge about my computer? why would they authorize you to help me? i strung him along for as long as i could, asking him to repeat his instructions. telling him that I had to turn on my computer and had him wait "while i was doing that". after several repeat of instructions (sounds like he is reading from a script, because once he is thrown off that script, he is not smart enough to find his way back on track. :). just keep repeating the instructions with no sense of an actual back and forth person to person. everything i said did not fall in line with what he wanted me to say and when he got to raising his voice, I finally said that i had to go and asked if i could have my "computer guy" call him back to get things sorted out. Gee - they don't seem to care for that idea at all! they are not smart. we have to remember that we are. don't let someone bully you into anything! this is tech-bullying.

I knew it was a scam as soon as they said they are calling from Microsoft. He said that Microsoft was trying to update my computer but it was unable to do so, so they needed to give me instructions on how to do it.. I just laughed and said I knew it was scam and hung up.

Apparently Microsoft calls people to help them "fix" their computer. So I said could he please call me back on my home office number because that's where the computer is. I gave him the number for the local Police. 😈

Said she's a Microsoft computer expert and was calling from Microsoft. I asked for her lists of certifications and credentials and she was dumb founded. Then strung her along for an hour with random computer issues before she clued in and started to call me a B*** and C*** for wasting her time. ;)

Indian accented male said, "Uh, this is David. I'm calling about your computer." I said, trying to sound innocent, "Well, there are many fakes out there. I'm not saying you are a fake, David, but I need to hear your employee I.D. number and I need the address you are calling from." . . . David tells me to hold on, then returns to read a long list of numbers very fast. I keep telling him to slow down and give me the "employee #" again. And again. And again, because the call is breaking up, because the other phone is ringing, because he's talking too fast. Happily, I wore him out. Ha ha ha..

Just received a call from this number advising me they're calling from Tech Support and noticed my computer is running slow. (Fyi, received the same call at home on 9/5/17 and got into a verbal match with them.) and they need me to provide them with information. I asked, "Really? My computer? There's no problem with my computer at all." The caller with a think Indian accent says, "How would you know ma'am?" ..."Well, because my husband is a Tech for the Government". CLICK! The guy literally hung up on me. .

Funny thing is I got a call from this number today and read the posts that it is a Microsoft scan. Yesterday I had 7 messages from two numbers that turned out to be scammers from representing that they were Apple support. Something needs to be done about this scum of the earth. I hope they get what's coming to them, sooner than later.
