Type of a scam Tech Support

I had 4 calls today from a person stating that they were calling from Microsoft saying I had multiple viruses on my computer and trying to access my information. I told them I have received calls from other companies trying to get my information and that if they call again I'd report them to the BBB. They yelled at me and hung up and called 3 other times. I called the number back and it stated the number was not a working number.

They called and asked if I was who I was and I said yes without even thinking about it and then they hung up. I read in the news that this was a happening and so I'm reporting it.

Type of a scam Phishing

On Monday, April 17th, 2017, at 1529 hours PST, I received a telephone call from (916) 209-4388; the number came up as "Unknown Name" out of Lincoln, California.

When I answer the phone, I could tell I was being transferred to a call center and the representative answered the phone had a British or Indian accent. The representative said "Mr. ***" (my last name is actually ***); I responded "Yes" and the phone line immediately disconnected.

I attempted to call the telephone number back and an automated message said the phone number was not in service.

I believe this was a con or scam designed to record my voice and me saying "yes" for the purpose of fraudulent activity or identity theft.

I've received multiple calls since April 13, 2017, from the 800 DirectTV number. When I finally was able to answer, the person asked me if my name was John. Instead of saying "yes," I asked him (because the number was DirectTV's) if he needed some survey info from a recent installation we had had done. He said he was LexMark (or something like that) and was calling from the hospital. I repeated his info back to him because it was so confusing. Then he hung up. That's when I realized it was probably a scam. I hope my family's accounts are okay.

Reminded me of the "yes" scam going on but they spoke in French. The only word I understood was "oui" Thought it could have been my son calling as he is stationed overseas. At this time, haven't noticed any changes in credit cards or bills. I'm not sure if they were out for money or what but just seemed fishy.

I have received calls 2 days in a row from a "Joe" using two different agencies he was representing. He stated he was on a recorded line and asked if I could hear him. I have heard of the potential scam where they are trying to record you saying yes. I did not says yes but asked a question who was he with again. Both time I was hung up immediately. I called both numbers back and it gets an auto recording. One option is to have name removed from do not call list and the other option is to speak with a customer representative. I tried the customer rep option and it said all reps were busy and to email [email protected]

Type of a scam Phishing

Caller tried to say my name to which I responded, "Yes?", but he immediately hung up. I called the number back several times but it went straight to a recording saying the mailbox is full. I'm concerned that this could very well be the scam that's going around, where the caller makes you say the word "Yes" to record it, then use it as proof of your consent for charges you didn't purchase. The call just happened so I wouldn't know if I were a victim of this scam so for now I'm only able to report the phone number of the caller.

I received a phone call from the above listed number, which I think is the "Can you hear me?" phone scam. She said "Hi, this is Brook calling with (inaudible) on a recorded phone line, can you hear me okay?"

Recording says "Please say yes if you want to learn more about retractable awnings" then hangs up. When you call back, the recording says Hello and thank you for calling, if you'd like to be placed on a do not call list for the number that called you, please press 1 now."

Type of a scam Tax Collection

This woman has called me for the past four years right around tax time. She claims to be a person who has been givien my personal business matter for handling and states that I need her to call me right away. She never describes who she works for or what it's regarding she gives the phone number listed above and gives this extension to dial 1246366. I have called back years past and she told me I had a warrant for my arrest. Feeling panicked I went to my local sheriffs office and they confirmed I have no such warrant. This is very frustrating and embarrassing as she calls people I haven't talked to in years.
