Window Fraud Tech
I had a call from this India call centre, claiming to be from Windows Tech Support) I said how can I help you, he said we need to check your computer, I said I only use Apple Mac, he would not take no for an answer, he said I have your computer ID, so I said what is your name, he refused to tell me. After I put the phone down, I immediately gave Action Fraud (UK) a call, they have now given me a crime number for this case, which will now be passed onto the FRAUD DETECTION INVESTIGATION at SY police. If anyone recieves these calls, I suggest you get in touch with ACTION FRAUD (UK)

Windows computor fault scam call.
0999011001246 called at 10.10hrs. Asian man spoke about ringing me from the Windows PC dept ... I put the phone down. Did a 1471 to capture the number and Googled it ... this site and 'Ash' gave the info if you are with TalkTalk ring 1477 and they block this number. I did and they did, great service. I didn't know I was with talktalk until last week. I bundle all my utilititys with Utility Warehouse and I have Gas, Elec, Landline ( Free landline calls anytime and also 6 International locations), Unlimited Broadband and pay on average £65 a month all in. They also have a cash card that saves 5p on every litre of fuel. UW is a Club who's members form a bulk buying power group getting gas from British gas cheaper than they supply thier own customers.

Incoming call
I called my telephone line provider (Vodafone) and they blocked the incoming call from this number that they do not recognize. It would be impossible to pick up line unknowningly. So please use the same modality

Silence then 'goodbye'
Another one of those silent calls. When I pick up the phone there is silence for about 15 seconds and after that it goes *beep* and a voice says 'goodbye'. Why?

09990224857

An Asian lady rings and tells me that she is working on behalf of my computer
company.The message she gives me is that the machine is full of faults and I must
give her all my details. I politely refuse and ring off. A number of nuisance calls follow
which ring off as soon as the phone is answered.

Scammers
Some idiot claiming I have problems with my computer. These people are scammers. They will try to get you to download some software or visit a website which will tell you that you have a virus. They will then ask you to pay them for their AV to fix the problem. It's all a scam. Their software is fake. They ring me every couple of days. I like to play a fun game of 'see how many different swear words I can shout at them before they hang up'. My record is 13. Post your score here!

Computer Scam
They want you to give them remote access to your PC, then tell you theres something wrong with your logs, then seel some software. It may just be the money or it may be something behind the scenes...ID theft? Don't fall for it

This number calls several times daily
Clearly a scam but exactly what I do not know unless they are looking for a call back. I've checked my telephone statement & these calls are not registered or charged for. I tried to trace the number with no luck. Anybody have any ideas?

Scam? I think so.
Asian guy claimed to be calling as a result of a report from microsoft technical support because of my computer microsoft error! I don't have an error. He asked to discuss the issue and I asked who'd passed my number on and he just kept saying I got a call from microsoft. Anyway, he hung up in the end. I called talktalk to report the number as currently there's no info online. talktalk are looking into it.
