 Jul 07th, 2015
Thank you to all who have left these comments! They keep calling my cell but I've never answered. As a result of reading these, I've blocked the caller using the handy little "block this caller" function on my iPhone.

This number is a scam. They continue to call and say that my computer is showing that I have a virus and asking for certain information. I told the callers I dont even have a desktop computer and they were completely dumbfounded and hung up. Again, I got another call from them stating the same things, only this time it was a female. DO NOT GIVE ANY INFOMATION. Horrible scammers, especially areound the holidays

They called and said my computer is sending error messages. They asked if I were in front of my computer and I said "No", actually I was they said they wanted to show me on my computer. I said, "No, I am not allowing you access to my computer, and I have software to clean up my computer so I know it is not giving any error messages."

They quickly hung the phone up ........but think this is not the last I will hear from them....can anyone help me with this issue?

This guy with a heavy Indian accent and did not know anything about computers told me that he was calling from Microsoft Support to tell me that my computer has errors on it and that he will help me resolve all of the problems on my computer. He was reading from a script the whole time. I know he didn't know what he was talking about because I am an IT (computer) Professional. I work on resolving computer errors for a living and this guy only knew how to read from a script.

Said my computer was showing a lot of error messages, and he was a professional Windows Service Provider, and could fix all that was wrong. Also something about re-registering my Windows programs in my name. Later said he was with AoneTechSquad. Acted so concerned that my computer was vulnerable to hackers, and he was there only to help, and 11,000 computers had already been lost to this problem. He liked mentioning these 11,000 computers. He wanted to get remote access to my computer. Plan would cost 149.95. Said his name was Eric Jackson.

Same deal. I only picked up because I have been dealing with a car insurance claim and they call from all over the US. The man stated he was calling about my windows computer. I don't have a personal computer. When I told the man this he said "You don't have a laptop". My response was no. He hung up before I could ask to be removed from the list.

Got the same call today everyone is mentioning. Thick African accent that sais he was "calling about my computer". I asked how he got my number and he told me from my network. The question is....how did they get my cell phone number if I'm on the do not call directory?

Caller: Your PC has been sending out error messages.
Me (in my best smart-alecky tone): Oh, IS it now?
Caller: Oh, no ma'am. Not right this minute. It happened over the last few weeks.
Me: That's real interesting. I run a Mac.
He hung up almost before I finished speaking.

Here is how to stop this if you are a ATT customer. Other companies probably have the same thing.

Call ATT and sign up for "Smart Limits". You can block any number for FREE for up to 90 days. After that it is $4.99 per month if you do not cancel it. I just put in in my calendar to remind me so I can cancel it.

Good Luck

Now some commentary: If this is a known number that is scamming why have the phone companies not stopped giving them service? The phone companies are part of the problem if they will not delete these scammers numbers.
The phone companies are making money off these criminals, that's why. Call and complain to your company.

The same person that calls from this number 1-212-235-0125 has been pretending to be from Microsoft Corp attempting to convince the computer owner/home owner/YOU to let him into your computer to remove a bug/worm. The liar so far has 4 different numbers that he calls from every day in his persistent attempts. They are:
1-212-235-0125
1-302-300-3754
1-800-928-6614

The goal is not merely software sales but to exploit your system. This is the fake PC tech scam. See this thread:
284-643-6572) http://whocalled.us/lookup/284-643-6572

Here's the verdict straight from Microsoft:

Avoid tech support phone scams

I received a call from this number today, they said they were calling from "Windows" and that my windows system was sending out " many error messages" I told him that I don't run windows, I actually run a Mac. He said " I must have the wrong number then" I asked him what name he had in his system and he said sorry wrong number and apologized telling me they would not call back.

Looked around online and I have since discovered this to be a scam where they try to sell you some new software.
Hang up. If they call
