On Tuesday, March 19, 2019, we received an automated phone message on our answering machine saying that this was a emergency and that our Microsoft Windows license key had expired, that all our MS products were turned off, and to call them at 1-877-896-5999. Our caller ID record showed the same phone number. Of course, we did not return the call. Thank you.

I was first approached by phone in June, 2016 for unlimited service for 3 computers for 350.00 by someone named Alex from a company called Crescentech, llc/1-844-221-4333. I fell for it and sent the money, when I tried calling for help the number was invalid.

Now I am getting calls from a Mark Taylor as a representative of Microsoft Refund saying I was due a refund of said 350.00 on jan 23, 2019. Wanting access to my computer I said it no longer woked, than you very much, and they said I would get a refund by mail in 3 weeks. Calling back this Mark Taylor said I had to have any computor and gave me his name and number,

1-700-300-8197. I tried to call back, no answer, and now I am gettin hangup calls-Mar 05, 2019

I had my Microsoft blocked on my iPhone claiming I had viruses and was a victim of hacking. In order to get my Microsoft released, I was told I needed insurance to prevent this immediately. I was called every hour, and I was asked for credit card info to insure my phone! Very disturbing. I had to contact my back and credit card companies.

(Supposedly)Microsoft called to say that my license would be shut down because my IP address was compromised by several whatevers in other countries. I was directed to press 1 to get a technician to help me change my IP address.

I hung up because I figured it was a scam.

The caller ID showed my name and had my info. That’s the only reason I picked up. They called twice @8:53 and 9:54. It starts w/ a recording. The 1st call said in 1 day and the 2nd said 48 hours.

At about 3:30 today (02-20-19) I got a voice massage from 888-491-9281 a female professional sounding auto-message said that my MS license key has expired and all my MS services have been stop and that I need to call 1-855-777-9055. When I call the number to confirm that it was a fraud and not just a prank call I was greeted by a man with a moderate to heavy accent. I don't wish to stereotype but sounded Indian to me. I know that MS uses India for tech support but i use Mac so I don't want his help anyway. Knowing that MS will never initiate a phone call I'm pretty sure that this is a scam. Thank You and Good Hunting.

I answered a call from Microsoft who said hello and I answered curtly "YES", the caller hung up and I realized that I may have fallen into a trap for me to say "yes"! I canceled my credit card and reported it to the fraud department of the credit card company. Nothing has happened yet that I am aware of, but I am just covering my bases.

Caller identified herself as Pam Chan, working on behalf of Microsoft to validate user information. Kept asking questions until I said the word "Yes" and then wanted to end the call.

I was contacted by this number posing as a microsoft refund for services paid for several months ago. They are requiring a bank account number for the refund. When asked for information regarding the refund, they had no answers for the call and gained control of my computer.

Kept receiving phone calls on our landline from this number and similar. Basic message from these scammers is that we paid for a microsoft product and because company is being forced to close, they need to refund money to us. Looked number up online and found many sites that confirm this is a scam because they ask for our bank info. As the BBB, i expect you to do something so seniors and elderly don's get scammed. If you can't do anything, can you contact the feds...FBI to report since it goes over state lines.

These people have been calling me, saying that they are from Microsoft. They state that they owe me money and I need to call them to get the refund from the security program I had previously signed up for. They told me that they accidentally deposited money into my account in the amount of $25,000 and that I needed to go to the bank and withdraw the money. The only information that I gave them was my bank name, South State Bank. I did not give them any account information. I went to the bank and to my surprise, all three of my accounts were zeroed out to nothing. Thankfully my bank was able to help me and put a fraud alert on them.
