Scammers offering to "fix" my computer. Tried to direct me to www.teamviewer.com so they could then get control of my computer. Right. Uh huh. Also advised they had an American partner company, with a website: Home IT Expert.
This is a spoofed number, used by scammers who are UNBELIEVABLY bold as they try to get computer owners to log onto their website and download their malware. Wow. If it works 1 time in a hundred, they have enough banking information to be golden.

Got a call from a wireless caller, asked for my husband but he was at work and he started talking to me and he said he was with technical dept of the worldwide web and that people have been hacking into our line and they are showing critical errors on their main server from this "hacking". He wanted me to log into my computer so he could show me the errors and something about a foreign network line. He sounded Indian and when I asked for a customer service number to call back he didn't know what that was and said I'd have to talk to the senior expert technician and that he has an internal number but no outside number to call in....I kept questioning him about a number to call back if he was with a real company and that I needed time to check this out and he kept wanting to show me on the computer - I said no and that I needed a number, he said he could give me his personal number, which was 707-288-4252 and said his name was Will Eddy and he was in San Diego CA. I said I wasn't going to do anything until I could call back or answer the phone when they call back - he said he'd call back in an hour or two...he also said they tried to call yesterday, which I don't show the number in my log of numbers....pretty persistant, so I pulled this up and seen the comments about a scam. So I won't be answering his call again

Indian scammers with various ways to try to trick you into paying them money. They may try tech support scams or in my case try to tell you that your serial number has expired and needs to renewed. If you tell them it's a new number and not registered yet they look stupid, call you names, and then hang up, hahahahaha!!

Got a call that shows on i.d. box as this number, from New York, NY. Man with heavy Indian accent, claiming to be from Microsoft and wanting to fix an error on our computer. I got a similar call recently from a number that said it was from Townsend, MT. When I couldn't get an intelligible answer to any of my questions, I told him I couldn't understand what he was saying, and I hung up. Looking up both numbers on the internet, I see that other people have had the same type of call from both of these numbers, and that both numbers register as "no longer in service" if you try to call them back.

I got the same call as everyone else. The first tip that it was a scam was when he said they were reading a "problem" with my wife's Windows computer. We have Mac. Duh. So I kept him on the line pretending that I couldn't get the instructions to work on my computer for about five minutes or so. Eventually, I told him I don't have a Windows computer, and he asked why I was doing this to him. I said, "Well, Man, if you're trying to scam me, at least I'm going to waste five minutes of your time." Eventually, I hung up on him.

Just got a call this evening at 5:43 pm, although I have seen this number on my caller ID previously. The man had a very, very heavy Indian accent and spoke rapidly. I work for years will many people from India and I couldn't understand this man except it was something about Microsoft and my computer. I got very impatient and said "I can't understand one word you are saying, so it is important you will repeat it slowly". He started to repeat and I was abruptly cut off. I could hear call center noises in the background. As the other people mentioned, the ID said this was a cell phone from NY.

You would think that Microsoft would want to protect their reputation as much as they protect their profit. But they obviously don't.

This phone scam has been going on for years. See http://www.registercitizen.com/general-news/20131015/torrington-police-warn-residents-about-phone-scam.

The sad part is these con-artists are still using the same phone number. It's like knowing where the crook lives but not doing anything about the crime. I guess it is time for all of us to buy Apples.

He apparently took our name from a phone listing. So, I asked him what my IP was. He didn't know what I was talking about, so I hung up. Sounded like he was calling from Asia though.

I get these calls all the time - scam to get remote access to your computer and steal all your info. If I have time, I'll keep them on the phone as long as I can - I act like I'm really old and can't hear and ask them to wait - I even hang up and they'll call back! I'll ask them to wait and lay the phone down and go about my business and they wait!! I figure if I keep them on the phone, it could save some others from getting these calls...plus it's kind of fun! :) Some of them get really mad - and that makes it really worth it!

Once I answered and when I told the very Indian guy that I knew he was scamming me, he started shouting at me and calling me all sorts of names.

The called me, said from Window's. For sure a foreigner, a male. Asian or Indian. I told him, I said what would your mother do if she seen you doing this scammer stuff, I said wouldnt she be disappointed in you. I went on to preach the gospel, I said there is a God in Heaven watching you and you will have to face him one day about your scams.

Then he laughed and started cussing me out. I said I told you, you were a scammer, what legitimate company would cuss a customer out. He was totally confused, then handed the phone to his female counterpart. I started preaching the gospel to her, she proclaimed it was not a scam. I told her about judgement day too, Told her she should get a real job at Wal Mart.

I also said by the way, the name of the company is not Windows. I said Windows is a product by the company Microsoft. I said at least get the name of the company right and dont forget Jesus is watching you still. Then she hung up. They have a tape playing in the background, its funny like you are supposed to hear 100's of phone reps talking. They couldnt keep the tape running and had to keep turning it back on.

I need to get rid of this virus!" after about 10 minutes of him trying to get me to "do" things to give him access and me "not understanding what to do...he got really frustrated.

Got a hangup on my cell today. I googled the number and found this article......Torrington police are warning residents of a phone scammer who attempts to gain remote access to the victims%u2019 computers and steal their personal information.

Police said the scammer has called anonymously from the number 646-612-3456 and claims to be from the %u201Cworldwide web%u201D or another internet-based company. The scammer has been known to tell the victim there%u2019s a problem with his or her computer and offers to help the victim troubleshoot the issue.

This would allow the scammer to gain access to victims%u2019 computers and retrieve their personal information, police said.

Police said residents should refrain from allowing anonymous callers to access their computers, and to call their internet service providers directly for help with any problems or concerns.
