I called the number back but it said the voicemail box for (I think the male voice that recorded it) said "Pits" or "Fits" was full and to try again later. Apparently who ever is calling has gotten many complaints on his voicemail.

I just saw my phone ringing with this number and it identified the number as coming from New Jersey. I live in South Africa so immediately I knew it's trouble. I heard about it via a BBM chain message that was going around luckily! What I'm wanting to know is where on earth these scammers got my number!!!

Caller had an Indian accent, stated my computer was going to crash and that my computer sent messages to them. They called three times.

A man sounding like he was from India and speaking very poor pidgin English stated Microsoft had received malware reports from our computer and he wanted to remote-access it. We told him to email us with details and gave him our name. He never asked for an email address. Very obvious phishing attempt!

They called my son's cell phone and said they were from Microsoft, the callers name was "Michael", didn't want to give me a number to call him, but finally did. He said that I had malware on my computer and that my computer called the customer service. He got very upset with me when I wouldn't go to the computer right away, but I informed him it was Thanksgiving and I was in the middle of cooking.

November 28th, 2013 Jackie MI

Heavily accented (Indian-sounding) idiot tried telling me that I have a serious problem in my computer and I need to give him access right away. I asked him how he knew and he claimed he was a tech with Microsoft. I laughed at him and told him that was really funny because I have an Apple computer! *click*

November 28th, 2013 Mobybuddy CA

He spoke with an Indian accent and said his name was John, which seems unlikely. He insisted that my computer had malware, but when I asked him how HE knew what was on MY computer, he glossed over it. He wanted to know if I was sitting in front of my computer, so he could show me where the malware was located. He said he represented Microsoft. He seemed panicked, I suppose to try to make me that way too and get me too do something imprudent, without thinking it through. I wonder if Microsoft knows about these guys(I assume there are multiple perps involved in this attempted fraud).

Do not get involved in a conversation with anyone from Progressive Business Publications. This is a scam aimed at businesses. You will be billed a minimum of $290.00 for a one page article that is virtually worthless just by talking to them. It took many threats by phone and mail to stop them from contacting our employees the first time and it appears that they are at it again.

(212) 777-3456

November 25th, 2013 Colby OH

They have called SEVEN TIMES today alone--when my mom first answered they said they were calling from Microsoft about some malware on my computer. When I answered a few hours later they said nothing then called right back and said nothing again! I know it's a scam and will be blocking this number.

November 6th, 2013 Sarakate OR

This was a super weird guy, heavy accent. Said he was "Tech Department" and I asked how I could help him he made frog noises in a deep voice and hung up. Very strange. I googled the number and found that these calls are sourced from Moviefone which I believe to be an AOL service to a scammer trying to sell an anti-virus software to some offshore dude wanting access to personal information. This has SCAM written all over it, hang up on the guy!!

October 26th, 2013 PopZ AZ

Caller claimed to be from the Technical Department and was asking about my Windows PC, I asked where he is from and he claimed to be from the SIerra Vista Technical department. THe Area Code for Sierra Vista is 520, 212 shows to be New York City (Primarily Manhatten)

This is scam!! The caller claim that they are form the Windows system Service and said my computer got infection which is true.

Do not believe them!

May 21st, 2013 Friend of Jesus

Don't answer calls like that where you do not know the number because a lot of the time they want to see someone answer so they can spam call you. I always write the number down and look the number up online to see a site like this so I know what to expect. This way they don't know for sure if the number belongs to anyone and i don't receive anymore calls from that number.

May 21st, 2013 Andrea

Received a voice mail from this number.

I just got a call from this number. Sounded like a scam right off the bat - Indian guy claiming to work for Dell calling about a problem on all Windows computers. First I told him I don't own a Dell and he said that does not matter (OBVIOUS scam!) because there was a problem involving what he called the "startup product key" for all new computers. Said there were people who called that said that their product keys were not working. Asked what he meant and he gave me a real kindergarten-level answer that did not tell me anything that I did not already know. Anyway, he went on to say that this problem causes things like pop-ups and viruses to infect a computer. Did not believe one word of it as to me, everything just screamed FAKE. Definitely tell all of your friends and relatives about this, so that none of them fall prey to this particular scam

I received first and one call today. They identified themselves as GBM Technet and an affiliate to microsoft. They claimed my computer was downloading viruses and needed me to log onto their server / website. I wouldn't do that because if it was a valid call, it would have come from my ISP or internet provider. If one were to do as they say, they could gain access to information on your computer... i.e. identification theft!! It's a scam!

December 15th, 2012 Larry CO

Not a whole lot of English. Asked to speak to "the owner of this phone number." That was enough for me, so I hung-up.

Just received a call from the phone number listed as Judy Lee. they wanted me to log into my computer as they had some download for me! Really, I asked for their name and phone number so my company tech support could call them as they own my computer.

You and I lowly citizens can't sue these foreign criminals, Roy, which is part of what shields those phony operations. File complaints with the FTC and your attorney general. I think the FBI and Secret Service could use a few hundred more reports, too.

FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3):
www.ic3.gov

Secret Service (mandated to investigate all sorts of financial and electronic fraud)
www.secretservice.gov

One other attack vector is suggested in that PacTel blog I've cited. Find who controls the phone carriers and the relevant state regulators and give them all a talking-to. This is very similar to a well established method of fighting email spam, the goal of which is to deny the spammer its upstream provider.

September 26th, 2012 Roy CA

They have called me several times. I looked up the phone number on the internet 206-397-1127 and found out its a scam. Can something be done legally to stop these scammers? The whole thing caught me off guard. I almost did what he was asking. Thank God I did not.

September 25th, 2012 Resident47 RI

Correct, Mo ... the South Asian scammers, and really any ''phony'' caller, can and do routinely spoof any number they please. Otherwise it's a ''spam harbor'' style arrangement with a US carrier like the infamous Pacific Telecomm.

Hi, just had a call from someone purporting to be Liza van Westhuizen with a strong accent that I would have thought was Russian or Eastern European, rather than Dutch.. Anyhow, said I couldn't hear her and she said she'd call again. I was wondering who on earth it could have been ad googled the number and wow - landed on your site! So now I know it is just a scam of sorts. Thanks google and all of you!!

Guy with an accent saying he is from Windows ... Wanted me to turn on my computer after I told him it wasn't on. I told him NO, and he asked me why not. I said I don't talk to people when the call is unsolicited, GOODBYE! His parting words to me were that my computer was being destroyed by a virus as we speak. There was lots of noise in the background ... I would imagine it was a lot of people in a sweat shop trying to get this scam out to un-informed people. BEWARE!

Also the Seattle based phone number showed twice on my phone. I am thinking they somehow are able to call that number from another country, then use it to call locals. Just a thought ...

August 29th, 2012 Resident47 RI

This is the fake PC tech confidence game.

Essentially some fiend in a boiler room, usually in South Asia, wants to coax you into dropping your firewall and security measures and play havoc with your system, possibly with the goal of then selling you the ''solution'' to the problem they caused. Worse yet they might plunder your hard drives for whatever can be sold or used against you. If your credit account data are volunteered or captured, there is no end to the trouble which may follow from all their criminal friends.

The scammers count on most computer owners being ''appliance users'' who don't understand what's under the hood and being easily misled. They may claim to have a pile of complaints because your system is spewing spam, or else instruct the user to open a shell and look at perfectly innocuous system feedback and claim there is something dangerous happening. This is the PC equivalent of the crooked auto mechanic who squirts oil on your axle and wants $1600 to ''repair'' the non-damage.

The dumber ones claim to be from ''the Windows Corporation'' or the ''Microsoft legal department'' or something as implausible. Their actual knowledge of personal computers is always pitifully low, as reported many times when real PC techs are called. (Sometimes their command of English is little better.) Often the reps become hostile and curse you out if you indicate any sort of informed resistance.

While the NSA may be logging our every keystroke and mouse gesture from San Francisco, Microsoft is not running any constant emergency alert system and is surely not going to run a reverse tech support call center devoted to writing each of us a trouble ticket. DO NOT follow any instructions from these goons and don't give them any satisfaction of making you upset.

For further reading, 800Notes has a few threads on this scam.

This man calls over and over from many different numbers. When I get a call outside my state I always let it default to the answering machine and they never leave a message. This is the second time this "Indian sounding" man has called this evening. He wanted to fix my computer but that is the scam. I feel so sorry for all the people he is able to scare into letting him guide them to a bad site after turning off their security protection. Just hang up and don't answer again.

How can anyone hold back on a generous offer, which as reported below, requires a deposit using a credit card. So, please give a robocaller your credit card because you have a trip.

I usually don't answer calls when I don't know the number. Getting tired of these idiots calling, even though I am REGISTERED on the DO NOT CALL list. I got a call from the EFA survey group offering free 2 day/2 night cruise for doing the short survey. As I heard this information, I immediately thought SCAM. Who gives away 2 day/2 night cruise for answering 30 second survey? At the end of the survey, they needed me to pay for the "port fees" to secure my free cruise, $118 per person. I have since blocked their number from calling. Glad to see the DO NOT CALL list is enforced to keep these idiots from wasting our cell phone minutes and time.

January 19th, 2012 Mister M. CA

Received on cell phone. Did not answer. Will do the most effective thing to make it stop: REPORT THIS NUMBER
TO FTC. Instead of griping, report scam calls with an FTC complaint. (See the bottom of this page for directions.
If enough complaints are reported directly to FTC, then an investation can be speeded up.
It may be great to "vent" here, but you must do more: complaint to FTC.

Q: How do I get the Moviefone phone service to stop calling my phone number?
A: First, we want you to know that this is not the actual Moviefone phone service calling your house or mobile phone. Unfortunately, this is an instance of phone spamming: someone else illegally using our phone service to spam your line with calls. The spammer calls from his or her phone line, but enters our number (777-3456) into your caller ID so it appears that the call is coming from us. In fact, the Moviefone phone service cannot even make outbound calls. Moviefone is unable to stop this from happening, and we are extremely frustrated about the situation. To track down the person or persons initiating the calls, you must report the issue to your phone company. Your phone company will trace the call back to the phone company of the person who is originating these calls. From there, the spammer’s phone company can trace the individual phone number that is making the calls and, hopefully, trace that to an actual person.

February 11th, 2011 B A PA

They called me and just sighed a heavy sigh on my answering machine and there was a whole lot of back ground noise; you could tell he was calling from a public place. It is a New York number and I am from PA. I called the number back and it was a number to MovieFone. This certainly sounds like a spammer! If it was a reputable business of sorts they would leave a professional message I would think.

“Cardholder Services” (one of several names they use) This is a debt-consolidation scam.

These scum are after money, personal info or anything else they can get to make bad use of and take great delight in being rude as hell.

Robo-caller message says something like 'this is card services, there is no problem with your account but if you'd like to lower your rate to 6.9% press 9'. This time I pressed 9. A guy comes on the line & says 'I understand you're interested in lowering your interest rate'. I said, 'No, I'm interested in knowing who this is'. He immediately hung up. Obviously a scam. Next time I'll have to try keep them on the line longer & see where it goes. This was a call to my cell phone.
