Disgusted_PCuser_GotScammed - 01-30-2015

My mom and dad kept getting calls from this business claiming that they were calling on behalf of Microsoft because their computer was sending errors and was being hacked. The first man I spoke with who said his name was John with badge #462 said their technicians would fix all the problems and prevent future hackers from bugging the PC. I'm not very familiar with PCs and I asked them to prove to me that they were from Microsoft. He walked me through a RUN program to show me he had the computer's ID number. After this he had me go to ShowMyPC.com to give their technician access to the computer. They said they would call back after the technician finished to tell us the fee, which he estimated would be from $60 to $100. Then they took over the screen and they appeared to be fixing the bugs on the PC. As they did this, I used a separate computer to research all of the information they gave me, including their phone number and the IP address they said was my parents. All of the search results I found indicated that this was a scam. So when they called back to tell me all of the things they fixed and what the fee would be (now $150 to $300), I told them that all of the information I researched led me to believe they were a scam. The second man I spoke with who said his name was Eric Walker proceeded to yell at me, telling me that they are not a scam and I could see with my own eyes that they had "fixed" the PC. I told them there was no way I was going to give them a credit card so the man just yelled louder, insisting we had to pay or we would never be able to access the computer again. I told him to have his supervisor call me to convince me they are not a scam. A few minutes later another man called and said we had to pay or couldn't access the computer. He said if we tried to turn the computer off it would never work again. So I told him we would immediately report them to the BBB and then we hung up on them. Since they still had access to the PC, they opened the internet browser and went to brazzer.com a PORN site. So disgusting! THESE MEN SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES. THEY ARE A DISGRACE TO THEIR FAMILIES AND TO ALL INDIAN COMPUTER PROFESSIONALS OPERATING LEGITIMATE BUSINESSES.

Stop Google Imposters - 01-30-2015

Google imposters who say they are from Google (they are not) and that your business Google+ profile is not complete or verified or optimized (or whatever bogus service they want to try and sell you today). They spoof numbers all across the US in an attempt to avoid being tracked. They call all numbers (including cell and those on the Do Not Call list), and they hang up if you ask them to verify their identity as a Google employee/representative or if you ask them too many probing questions. Other reports online state this is a scam originating from India or Pakistan. Their goal is to get you to sign up for their bogus service so they can bill your credit card or get your financial info. When they call and ask to speak to the business owner, ask them what business they are trying to reach. They can't answer your question because they don't know. It's a robodialed call and they are trying to scam as many people as possible so they don't care who you are or what business you are -- they just want your financial info and credit card number.

Irritated - 01-30-2015

This number calls us several times a day. Rings twice and hang up. Never lasts long enough for us to answer, much less our answering machine. started about a week ago. Search indicates landline based out of Clinton TN, but on Verizon. I won't call back because of the suspicious nature of the repeated calls, not meant to be answered. I hope they aren't casing our house. They will be surprised if they come inside. Our dog doesn't like intruders.

Caller: Never left a message Two rings and hang up

I received a message on my home machine the other day, 01/28/15, while I was out, (the caller ID showed 'Richmond, VA'). A heavily 'Indian' accented man claimed to be an 'Officer' calling from "The IRS Fraud and Litigation Center" and I was in danger of being audited for "Tax Evasion". He claimed that I needed to call him ASAP or I would "be arrested for tax fraud." He claimed it was "urgent" for me to call immediately, 804-316-9471.
I checked with 'IRS.gov' and it is pretty clear on this being a scam for multiple reasons.
Just Google "IRS phone scam."

Pretended to be the IRS to collect money. This is a major scam! If they only know as much about you as is in the phone book or on your LinkedIn, it is a MAJOR scam. The IRS does not call demanding immediate payment.

"Officer David Williams" from the "IRS" called me this morning and left a message saying that this is the last chance I have to work with him. Called back from another numbers and after his spiel I told him that I know he's not working with the IRS and knew he was lying about the lawsuit and warrant (you could hear a few others in the background answering calls as the IRS as well). He then began asking me what I am wearing, my age, and other inappropriate questions, and said it was okay since I knew he wasn't an official. He asked for my location and I told him that I don't give out personal information to anyone and he "promised" he wouldn't misuse any of it (yeah, I'm sure that since he promised, I can totally trust him!). Don't even give this disgusting piece of crap the time of day. Report it to your wireless service or phone company to see if the can block it from their standpoint as well as your own phone's blocking ability. Get these jerks reported and their numbers taken down. Scum of the earth scammers!
