These ppl are foreigners calling in the middle of the night, stating that they've encountered computer problems on your computer. I've asked that they take us off Thier calling list and they state that they're still going to call & they still do in the middle of the night

An ad in the right-hand column of Facebook had a picture of Harrison Ford with the words "R.I.P Harrison Ford 2017".

My wife clicked on the ad and it locked up her web browser with a pop-up window that claimed to be "Microsoft Support" trying to help her fix an alleged spyware or virus they falsely claimed had been detected on her computer.

Call saying they were Microsoft tech support trying to help with updates that weren't going through. They knew my email address claiming they had emailed to say the call would be coming. No such email is in my inbox. My computer crashed several weeks ago. My fear is that this was the next step to get into my accounts.

Contacted initially by a caller from tel # (925) 123-4567 who said that they were taken over tech support from a company that I worked with last November that did virus protection work but were put out of business by the FTC as they were actually placing malware on computer. Can't recall the name of the company but they were supposedly part of a conglomerate that included My PC.The caller initially identified himself but when I asked for his name and name of his company as I wanted to contact the FTC, he hung up. This occurred on Monday September 26.This morning (wed) got a call from a company identified as "tech Support" that claimed it had taken over the business from the company as the "BBB" has shut them down for not providing the support promised.I told them about the call on Monday and they checked the number and said it might originate in Russia.I set up an appointment for tonight but grew suspicious of the BBB "shutting" them down.Tried to call this number: 561-429-7388 but it was Majic Jack account with full or no mailbox. Caller at this number was named Dylan, Called local BBB and confirmed that this was not something they did. (note: were suppose to call me back

6 PM Wednesday night and did not).

Received call from 310-415-6129 at 12:27 PM on June 6, 2016. The female caller said they had gotten my computer ID. This person had a foreign accent and when I asked what information they had received they started laughing and hung up. I gave them no information. On June 4, 2016, they also called from the same number and left no message so I thought it was probably a scam both times.

I recd a call at 10:10 AM this morning & I spoke w/a man (had a foreign accent) who stated my computer had spyware/malware and it was corrupted and had to be cleaned out. I told him that AT & T normally does not call so I told the man I was going to check w/AT & T. I called AT & T to verify information; they do not call.

Total money lost $600
Type of a scam Tech Support

My 91 year old grandmother told me that she got a popup on her computer claiming her computer had a virus and she was not able to click on anything further until she clicked through the questions on the popups. She said that someone named "VK" contacted her and got her to pay $600 with her VISA card for tech support from them to clean up her computer and for 365 days of service. I am not sure if they contacted her by phone or via the computer. I called them back for her to see about a refund and they said they would only refund $150.00. It was a middle eastern man who answered, who said his name was "TeeJay". "TeeJay" made me send him a confirmation email saying that we agreed upon a $150.00 refund and that the amount would not be disputed any further. I sent the email from her email address as a reply to the receipt they had sent her for the $600.00 charge. I feel like this is not a real company. They downloaded things onto her computer without her knowledge, and I believe they took advantage of her because she is 91 and did not fully understand.

They call and tell me they owe me a refund and the ( tech ) needs to get into my computer to refund my money.He also called here and my room mate was asked if she could accept the refund. He just needed her bank info so he could deposit the $400.00 dollars in her account. Luckily she didn't do it. This is the phone number their calling from 1-212-650-7149. I hope this helps someone else. Thank you

Middle Eastern accent. He said i was detected to have computer problems. I acted helpless and played along as this is the (at least) 4th call I've had. He seemed to get excited when I acted all nervous about having computer problems. He said, "yes, this is an emergency call, turn on your computer !" Wanted me to open my web browser and type in He had me repeat and spell it. A cell phone number came up as : Cell Phone NY 1-516-635-4085. I told the caller to never call me again. I have reported this to the Do Not Call Registry as well.

Person calls saying they are from tech support, and your computer is sending them messages, you need to boot up and hook them up remotely to get the issue fixed. Of course that would open your computer up for all info to be stripped.

They call once or twice a week. Being on the no call list doesn't matter, you cannot report them as its from a different number everytime.

Calling from a NJ number 856-325-8925. Claiming to be at Microsoft in California, Scammer try to acces your computer by getting your Mac Address.

I never give out this info. I don't recommend giving out this info to anyone ever. It's just like giving them your password.

My Wife has been called twice today and over the last 6 months about 10 more times.

Please be careful.
