This number is being used by a spam call system....due to the noise in the background it was definitely a boiler room type operation...when you start to ask some basic questions they hang up

I receive a call and the scammer said my name and was talking real fast to throw me off. It was boiler room noise in the back ground and he sound foreign. He insisted for me to go in front of a computer for what reason was kind of unclear. And then he said that my computer got a virus when I just took my computer and had a free diagnosis done and it doesn't have a virus and plus I really don't even be on it. They only want to steal your information if you let them control your computer. When I said he was a scammer then he immediately hung up.

Did not answer call. We don't take calls from unknown names and numbers. However, there have been other calls from scammers and looks like this name and number is no different. Be very careful who you do business with by phone.

I just had a truck from there call me and when I told him to take my name and number off of his list he told me to go F myself. I repeated my request he said it again so I said yeah well right back at you and hung up. He then called me back , unleashed even more absurdities, and told me that he was gonna get some guys and come gangbang me.

I got 3 calls from this number yesterday, within an hour. They didn't leave a single message, so I tried to answer their third call. They just talked very much about my computer, viruses, teamviewer, etc. Right after they stopped talking, I just hung up and added the number to my blocking list. I have also reported it to FTC. Beware of them, folks.

It was enjoyable to put this person on hold to "wait" for my "husband" to come to the phone... it went like this: Thank you for calling the Legal Unit of the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a Federal Investigator will be with.... then the line went dead.... shuckelberries... maybe next time Gadget... Please do not answer this phone call. This time they lucked up and called a government line. No there is no tracing, yes it was reported. If this person calls tomorrow, then due to the nature of my job, I must answer that phone - think of it this way - what if the phone number is released to a person who really needs help? Happy Holidays and stay aware!

Said my computer was sending error on the internet. My internet was down and he asked me if I paid my bill. Sorry to say that I fell for something similar about 1 1/2 ago.not a phone call but my computer had a virus and i stupidly I called the number because I thought it was from my security people. I will only use someone local to check my computer from now on.

I received several calls from this number. They also left some messages, a thick accented man asked me to call back the number, because they have something very important that I need to resolve ASAP. I knew that Microsoft will never call its customers one by one if there are some issues in their PC, so I knew that it was just foreign scammers trying to steal our information. Beware of them, folks.

I answered with Hello. I heard voices in the background speaking foreign languages. Nobody said hello back so I hung up after 30 seconds or so of listening for clues.

Thank you for the warning guys, they did call me but when I answered I only heard noise in the background speaking foreign language, so I hung up. I agree it was definitely a boiler room type operation.

Loud background. Caller said she was calling from "tech support" about malware on my computer, and she wanted to know if I was online right now. I pointed out that since I'm employed by a software company with our own in-house tech support and internet security team, I wasn't sure why she was bothering me with her scam.

SCAM heard loud noise in the background called saying my Microsoft word needs assistance, due to an error message. I said Oh really, what might that error message be. I then hung up the phone.

I received a call this evening from this number and their was lots of loud call center noise and voices in the background. A guy who had a very strong accent told me then that he was Al Queda and was coming to get us. i've called an FBI friend but it's probably a prank call but regardless I've reported it.

Lol. I also got some calls from this number, but I just answered it once. They asked me if I have a Windows computer. I just told them that I don't have any computer, because I hate electronics, and I told them to just throw their computers out of their windows, because it made us dumb, and so on, and so on. They just hung up after several minutes listening to my bullshit. Haha. Lol. I'm glad there's website like this, so we can warn others about these motherfucking scammers!

Some Indian dude called and asked my if I had a Windows computer and if I was using it now. I told him yes and that I was just watching p**n on it. Then he said that I had some kind of virus and told me to push some buttons so I told him that I couldn't because they were too sticky. He then proceeded to lecture me about taking this seriously so I pretended to take down his number and read it back incorrectly three or four times before he told me to get lost and hung up

Lol. I like the idea. Haha. I was just yelled at him and they hung up after several seconds. I have received these kind of calls since several years ago. They always changed the numbers, but always talked the same way.

I received a call from this number on 2/13 around 9:30pm. A female was on the other end saying she was calling about problems with my computer. There was noise and laughing in the background. When I told them that I didn't own a compurer, she hung up. This is definitely a scam to try to get info from your computer.
