For the past several days I've received at least 8 automated robo-calls claiming to be from Microsoft. They suggest my IP address has been compromised and must press "1" to speak to a rep who will cancel my contract. I have no idea what they are talking about and did not do as instructed.

I received phone calls yesterday, June 8, 2019, and today, June 9, 2019, from a man with a very thick Middle East or Indian accent. He told me $399.00 would automatically be deducted from my bank account unless I cancel the charge. Today's call was even more infuriating and suspicious because it was the same man and I couldn't understand him. He put his supervisor on the phone; another person with a thick accent that was difficult to understand. He wanted me to type on my https: line, "" When I did, right underneath the search results I was able to see, " scam," so I told him what I saw and that I refused to go to that website because it would destroy my computer and I knew it. He kept talking over me and finally called me a "mother***r" and hung up on me. I've tried blocking the calls, but they still get through. I'm panicking because I don't have $399.00 to be scammed out of. Thus far my bank account has not been affected, but I will continue to check my balance daily. This is wrong on every level. I told the guy that I knew he wasn't from Microsoft. Their phone number is 312-667-9475. In the message that I first received yesterday and the one again today said, "Call us at Microsoft at our toll free number 312-667-9475. That is a Chicago number (312 area code).

Received a call from someone claiming to be with Microsoft - 520-645-2011, and said my computer had been compromised and had a virus that needed to be fixed. Asked me to give them control of my computer and it would only cost me about $200-$300. I hung up!

I'm 90 years old. I've gotten several calls from an Indian man with a heavy accent. He told me my Microsoft license wasn't going to be activated. He said he was going out of business, and wanted to refund me. He was walking me through the steps on my computer. I gave him remote control of my computer. He showed me lots of things on my computer. He told me to go to Save A Lot and buy a Google Play Card, and he would activate my license. He was on the phone for over an hour. He told me to call 747-241-6575.

My wife received a call from an unknown number. When she answered they hung up so I called them back. They said "Microsoft" and told me they needed my computer license # otherwise my computer would be locked down. I told them I'd call back with the # and instead called the real Microsoft who told me that Microsoft doesn't call consumers.

This company said that Microsoft called them and told them that my IP address had been compromised. They wanted me to call them back. Ironically, the number they originally called me from was my own phone number.

Microsoft called and said there was a problem with Windows and said they would refund me $299.00 and they needed access to my account. When it was put in it showed up as $2999.00 and that I would have to pay them back in American Express gift cards.


When I bought them I bought four $500 gift cards and two $300 prepaid cards. They told me they could not process the pre paid one and that they could not process partial payments and that they voided those cards. When I told them I would not give them anymore gift cards until I got refund the money for the gift cards. They said they refunded the $2600.00 in my account so I took $2600.00 cash out of my account and bought more gift cards.

After all this was done and I looked closer into my accounts I noticed that they never did give me the original $2999.00. They only took that amount out of my one account and put into my other account. They also did that with the refund of $2600.00.

So now I'm out $5200.00. I feel so stupid and ashamed that I did not see the red flags sooner and that I was tricked so easily. I'm hoping to get my money back but I just don't want this to happen to any one else.

My mom is receiving multiple repeat scam phone calls every day. They use her phone number as the caller ID. They say they are from Microsoft and that will disconnect her license within 48 hours because her IP address has been compromised by several countries. They want her to press one to speak to a technician so they can change her IP address and license key. She pressed one the first time they called and then hung up. Ever since then they have been calling her multiple times every day.

I got a call from Brian Ross at Microsoft saying 27 people were using my computer. He told me to turn on my computer and give him remote access. Then he told me to go to Walmart, buy $1200 of Walmart Gift cards and tell the clerk it's for personal use so the clerk won't charge me a $200 service fee. Last September we paid $1000 with our credit card to a tech support scam.

I received a phone call that left a message saying, "Urgency call from Microsoft your Windows license key has been expired all services are suspended to renew call our toll-free 1-833-287-9888."

Clearly fraud - they cannot even write a complete thought. When I called, someone with a foreign accent answered, "Microsoft Corporation." I hung up so they could do no damage.

Consumer was called by a gentleman called who stated that he was owed 499.00 refund. Consumer stated that he did not have business with Microsoft and there is no reason why he would be owed money. The man kept trying to bait the consumer and the consumer stated again that he would not be owed any kind of refund and the gentleman finally hung up on consumer.
