I was just having fun with this guy... he followed me through the steps of fix'n my virus affected computer... I've only been using a computer for 20+ years, but I had so much fun acting like I didn't know what to click on when he instructed me to... You know how annoying it is when you're trying to help someone with an issue on the computer, but they are totally clueless on what's- what of a computer?? yeh, me too... awwwwwwwwwwww I'm sure I gave him a HUGE headache! *pats self on the back*

I am so tired of getting these calls that are from people trying to get into my personal info via me allowing them access to my internet. I get these calls 3 or more times per month, and im so sick of it im about to have my phone shut off permanently.
Is there anything that Comcast or Xfinity or who ever can do something.? Its disruptive to my work and or my right to quite/peace and enjoyment.

I can't believe this guy would think I would go to my computer and do what he said. When he called me I told him I was not home. So he said i will call you back in 2 1/2 hrs. I said ok just to get him off the phone. What really get me is when you can hardly under stand to begin with. That really pisses me off. So everyone please be careful with these phone calls.
I spent a bunch of minutes talking to, and listening to, this aggressive South Asian male. He told me that Microsoft computers in PA were infected with "critical errors" and that he had 17,000 calls to make to people, on behalf of Microsoft, to alert people to the problem. He told me to go to my computer and, following his instructions, input information so as to rid my computer of these critical errors. What troubled me were the situations of his asking for my mother (who has never touched a computer in her life), my own life with computer-owning for 12 years never having prompted such a call, and his aggressive, urgent insistence I input instructions from him into my computer. I ended the call with this man and immediately called my phone company to ask them, and tell them, about this call. Customer service told me that this man, who sounded about as much like a "Kevin" as Kissinger sounds like Nancy Kwan, was fishing/phishing. I venture he will successfully hook someone, but not me today.

Recognized the # from previous time I had fun with these fools. This time I told him in no uncertain terms I knew who he worked for, that he was a scammer and in no way a scam artist, just a thief and no, I don't need help with my Windows computer because I have a Mac - and hung up.
A person pretty much called trying to get me to download a software that can pretty much remove a virus/malware and can only be removed by that program. This is called a Rogue Antivirus Software, so if you get this call, and they ask you for that stuff. Don't follow the instructions.
