Type of a scam Phishing

Received a call from Unknown at 813-421-5394. The person said they were calling about my Microsoft Windows computer, and I said the word "ok" and they hung up. Is probably one of those scams where they record your voice and then try to order a product or service in your name and then you are forced to pay. Hopefully, this doesn't happen. I called the ScamPulse.com in Wyoming, they said to add it to Scam Tracker. Receiving more than my share of scam calls even though on the Do Not Call registry.

A message supposedly from Microsoft that it would shut down my computer if I did not call the above number came through as I was opening my email. Rote recorded voice that said warning 2 and said my emails were being possibly hacked to get my credit card information, etc.. Hard to close it down.

I received a robot call from Microsoft Corporation which said the money I paid recently for a service provided was illegally billed and they have been ordered by the government to refund it and to shut down. I am asked to call a certain number., 1-888-416-1677. I do not intend to do so until I know this is not a scam. Would appreciate your help.

I keep receiving a call at least 3 times a week from this number. The person tells me they're from Microsoft legal. They say, you paid for a service from Microsoft a few months ago and we're here to give you a refund. Please go to your computer and go to your home page.

I haven't let them talk any further. I hang up!

Usually when I say, I didn't pay Microsoft anything, they disconnect.

The calls or from telephone #:844-365-8120

I received a phone call from the above number saying there was a problem in Windows Firewall has detected a threat on your operating system. Then they said to call Microsoft at the number above. I did not call the number since I believe Microsoft would not phone us if there was a problem. Just thought I should report so that others might be warned.

A guy with a heavy Indian accent has called my work numerous times saying we have a refund from Microsoft, however we do not use Microsoft Corp. The guy gets rude when I tell him we don't use their company and starts yelling at me " DON'T YOU WANT YOUR REFUND OF $299".

This happened a few weeks in a row and today we received an automotive call saying our credit card was charged $399 for computer services and to call 1-866-560-3111 if we have any questions. So I called back and the heavy Indian accent guy answers the phone, says his name is Alex and says he can refund the money if we provide credit card details. I told him to not call again or I would notify authorities and that he was nothing more than a terriost.

I just received a call that I've received before - MANY TIMES - and fell for once a few years back.

The person calls. Says they are from Microsoft and need remote access to your computer to install an update, virus protection, etc.

It's a scam, they try to get you to screenshare with them on their fake website. Guess what happens when the "update is complete"? They payment want payment and "it doesn't go through" so they want you to check a number on your bank account portal.

Then, they try to show you the html code. I'm assuming at this point they'd take a screenshot of the code. I closed my computer immediately and disabled wifi.

Wednesday 4/18/2018, I got about 6 phone calls telling me that they would be closing at the end of the day please call 8503472505 so they could get me my refund. I call the number to find out what this was all about, a guy answered his name Robert Hernandez, badge # N827146 this was Microsoft. This guy told me to go to Microsoft web page he knew exactly how to get you through the Microsoft web page as if he was a employee tell you what steps to take to get you to the point where you could get your refund back. Did not want any banking information just the mane of your bank & what your name was, They pretend to put money into your account & ask you what amount was in the account I told them like a dummy,he said they put to much money in the account that I need to refund them the difference. In order to pay them back their money I was to go Dollar General or Walgreens & get a Google Play gift card in the amount of $400.00 & give him the numbers off of the back of the card then he hung up. I called the 8503472505 a American man answered, all the calls to me was an American man, Robert was a foreigner.

This guy with a heavy Indian accent called and told me that I had software that was incompatible with my computer. He then told me that he would install new software and refund my money. He wanted me to go to the teamviewer website to presumably install the software so that he could access my computer. I told him that I wasn't that gullible and that I was reporting the number. They then tried to call back and used a computer voice that said that I had purchased software 3 months ago from Microsoft and that the company was shutting down and they wanted to refund my money.

Received a call on my cell phone from a foreign man who called himself “Peter”, insisting that I contacted Microsoft about a refund. When I stated that I had not spoken to him he insisted that I did and wanted to know my location. He wanted to know if I was at home near my computer. When I started asking questions about who he was and let him know that I was not providing him any information, he hung up on me. When I checked my home phone, I had received several calls with no messages from the same number.
