Said I had a problem with my computer, heavy Indian accent. We hung up!
said he was from global pharmacy offering discount on medicine
scammers are getting pretty lazy. But I suspect this was from the 'BUILDERS SQUARE' scammers as it was right after their calls from 210-301-0307

Pennsylvania Sep 11th, 2015

Scammer scumbags claiming they're from Microsoft, just hang up.
California Jun 30th, 2015
I keep getting calls from this number. No one ever answers. I am not well and this has disturbed me many, many times. How can I get it to stop?
Another Shit for brains outfit that offers a free service to reset your Bank Balance to ZERO for you. Live voice, not sure he got his hearing back yet. I blew him a kiss (somehow, when I did it, a whistle was stuck to my lips).
FRAUD!! Phony pharmacy.
Latest report is this call is from the "Northern Lights Pharmacy". They are attempting to sell you "Viagra". SCAM!
Goat Roper from Redneck country. DO NOT CALL these turkeys back since sometimes, they tack on a $$,$$$.00 chargeback on your phone.
Thursday 12 March 2015 -- 9:10 am -- Caller ID said "texas". No message was left. Many internet complaints about this supposedly non-existent number ("not in service" when called back). Several scams being run from this number.
I've gotten a number of calls from these people. The first few claimed they were detecting malware and breaches on my Microsoft network. They were befuddled when I explained I don't have a Microsoft network since all my equipment is Apple. I told him he was full of crap and I was hanging up. Today's call started with the guy claiming he was from Apple headquarters - Ha! Same deal - I had malware and viruses, etc. I annoyed him when I persisted on asking him who gave him permission to monitor my computer use. He said it was a free service. I asked again about permission and voiced privacy concerns. He got more and more annoyed till I got tired of playing around and once again told him he was full of crap and I was hanging up. Ridiculous.

I got the same call from "Kevin" I yelled as loud as I could into the phone; he called back on the Builder's Square number but I ignored it.
7 October 2014 -- 9:01 am -- Caller ID said "texas". No message was left. Numerous comments on this and other sites indicate this is a computer scam.
This call showed Builders Square 210-301-0307. I answered the phone and a male with a middle eastern accent called himself Kevin said that they are not selling anything and that they wished to discuss a malicious malware attack on my computer. They said that I have a Windows based machine, is that correct? When I asked if this was a sales call they said now, they have a relationship with Windows and was not selling anything and it wasn't a scam. I asked what was their business relationship with me and Kevin said in a heavy middle eastern accent that he will would be happy to explain, then went back into his spiel about virus and malware. I asked again what his business relationship was and he said I am explaining and continued with his spiel. By this time I have said I am on the Do Not Call list twice and he continued. I asked for his supervisor, he said, you wish to speak to my supervisor? Yes, please since I am on the Do Not Call List, I needed to talk to someone in authority to find out what your business relationship is with me personally and how you got my phone number. He said one moment please. I heard some background chatter, then a good bye. I think I pissed him off, which is a good thing.
Showed up as Builders Square on my caller ID but the voicemail left was regarding local campaigning information for mayor elections.
Keeps calling, no message...hangs up
I got a call at 5:45am from a man with a foreign (Indian) accent telling me that my computer needed repair. At first I thought it was an emergency, as no one calls (or should be calling) that early unless there was an emergency. The call woke me from a deep sleep. I asked him "Do you realize that you are calling me at 5:45am?!!" He said "Well, I know it's early in the morning there..." I replied, "You think??" I then told him to please not ever call me again. I have not received another call (yet).

Claimed to be from Card Holder Services wanting to "lower my interest rates" which is slang for "steal your identity". Receive about an average of 8 calls a day from these scammers, so I put them on speaker and talk crap about the thieves. They usually hang up on me.
Did not answer - Caller ID was 210-301-0307 "Builders Square", which has been out of business for over 10 years.
I said Hello, he said your computer is infected, I hung up. He called back on a "private" number and said he lost the call. I said "I hung up" and did so again. Where do these people get our numbers. Put them in jail.
California May 22nd, 2014
yep got one a strong foreign accent, a camels husband perhaps, and he said I had issues with my computer and I told him I did not have one and to stop calling, he said he knew I had a computer, which is scary and I told him to f.o and hung up
These idiots won't stop. When the hell is the FTC going to shut them down???
I also received a call from an Indian wanting to fix a virus on my computer. I already knew of the scam. Initially, I acted very worried and profusely thanked her, I went along wasting their time. I told her how my family was destitute and I couldn't afford to have my comuter go down. Then I acted like I had to reboot my computer and asked if she would PLEASE wait until it rebooted (while I watched a Seinfeld rerun). At about the 20 minute point, sensing her impatience, I then asked her if she was married and that she sounded soooooo sexy. As a last resort, I slowly began to acquire an Indian accent. Then, when she was ready to hang up I implored her to help me because I thought I had a bad virus. I think I wasted about 25 minutes of her time. I also kept yelling at Leroy (a fictitious person) to turn down the damn TV! Time is their enemy. If you have it, waste THEIRS!!
This was an Indian guy who was immediately inappropriate with me when I told him to take my number off their call list. "You have such a beautiful voice. I wish I could talk to you every day but alas, I cannot. Are you married?" He also tried to talk me out of having my number removed. Filed an FCC complaint but doubt it will do much good.
Protip for everyone: worst insult you can use with an Indian male is "lucho." It's a term for someone who rips people off so badly that their children starve and is also a slur against Pakistanis.
I said I am on a do not call list. He said "then go to Hell." Nice.
It is a well-known scam from India or Pakistan, they take over your computer hold it ransom and put in viruses do not except will give information hang up.
They said i needed to fix my computer. They are from microsoft tech support. Fake. Fake. Fraud . Fraud. They are not real and are trying to steallmoney and take your identity. Call local police office and report them asap.
These callers are known scammers (operate out of Kolkata, India)
caller id was Texas say they are Microsoft and they hack your computer and lock you out. I they know your internet ip address and lock you out of computer so they can sell you software security. Disconnect your internet if you get a call from them.
Keep pounding the FCC until they do something about these ass pains!
Caller spoke Spanish, asked for my father by name. I said we speak English, is there someone there who speaks English clearly? To which they hung up.
The caller claims to be with Microsoft. They claim your computer is sending messages about virus or malware and will all you to make changes to your computer's registry or settings that will give them access to your computer any any information there in. I played along but didn't make the changes. I am an it pro and know better.
These guys a con-artists who call you and say they work for Microsoft. They claim Microsoft has been getting messages from your Windows computer that it is infected with a software virus. The scam will eventually lead to you giving them confidential information like your credit card number. It is a well known scam.
Caller with Indian/Pakistani accent said from Windows Support. It was a scammer attempting to get me to give him access to my computer.
This number is a scam. They are offshore scammers that get information from people and use it to get money from that person through multiple means. This is why the calls are so different from eachother. The do not call registry doesn't matter since they are offshore and using numbers from the internet. I hang up on them and they will call multiple times cussing at me because I like to mess with them a tad. I work in an office so the person they call for hasn't even worked here for years. I'm pretty sure they get information through online fake surveys, since those vary, the calls do too.
In other words... NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THESE PEOPLE, EVER.
These morons call me daily, saying they are from Microsoft and there's a problem with my computer, so sick of these idiots..
These people said they were from Microsoft and they whanted to refund some money since I was scammed on 5/6/2013 from number 303-800-6352
I told them to stop calling my house, but they keep calling any way I am so pissed off. Get rid of telemarketers.
From: Pissed off from Massachusetts
Multiple calls from this number during February & March of 2013. When call is answered there is no response. I'm on the national "Do NOT Call" & the Louisiana "Do NOT Call" lists. Apparently, these people have decided to ignore these lists
I get daily calls from this number, but when I answer, no one speaks and then the connection disconnects
Get rid of this company (telemarketer)
Wow, this seems to be the ultimate scam phone number. My call (the first I've received from this number) this morning was from a live person who used my first name and said she was calling about a medical alert device. I asked her to take my number off her list and she was very polite and apologetic. We'll see...
I got a call from this number on my office phone today. No display name. The recording said something like, "As a WestJet customer you have won a prize. For more information press 1, to decliine press 2". I hung up. I've heard in the last day or two that similar calls have been coming to a number of office phones and cell phones, but I can't verify which number they came from. A whole series of similar calls came in several months ago, but from a different number.
Have you taken the time to jot down the contact information from Caller ID, and filed a report with the FCC/DNC? You may think that this would be a waste of time. In the forums at this site, you can read accounts of how persistent reporting provides grist for the FCC's mill to begin to build up information and actually begin to take action against these nasty people. -- Oh, and if you want to get a nap, put your cell phone in the bottom drawer of your dresser under a stack of folded clothing, close the drawer, and go take your nap in another room altogether.

Indian sounding woman that wanted to lower the rate on my VA loan. I asked that if she was real why her caller ID read the name of a lumber company. She had no answer and still just wanted to lower my rate. I said no explain to me why you call under the name of a lumber company instead of who you really work for and was it because she know that no one would answer the phone if the true caller ID was listed. She hung up on me.
A foreign, indian speacking person called and said they were from microsoft and my computer was sending information to microsoft that they without my knowledge. they said it was a virus and they wanted to send a microsoft repairman to the house to fix the problem. if i let it keep going it will eventually erase my hard drive. this is not the first time i recieved this from them.
Received a voice mail message from this number that dealt with a political endorsement.
Heavily accented caller asked if he was speaking to the lady of the house and said he was doing a 1 minute survey then asked if we recycle (I had some fun saying I was not familiar with that magazine, so no, I do not Read Cycle; he then said recycling to which I replied No, i don';t know that magazine cycling either!LOL) He then started naming can, bottles, etc. I told him I did not understand half of what he was saying and asked where he was calling from, and pressed until he answered because the number traces as Texas. He told me he's actually in the Phillipines. Then I said "Get Lost - no reason for you to be surveying Canadians." and I hung up.
They just called at 4:52...I hit the # key ten or so times...I read somewhere that messes up their robocall program....
Saw the number on call display, checked here while it rang, then pressed the Fax receive button to give them an ear full of squawks.
Calling me on my cell phone. Idiots are costing me money with their crap. I recently signed up on the Do Not Call list, so it seems they use that to start calling me.
Caller spoke to me in Spanish, I asked who it was in English, she replied with "Do you speak Spanish?"
and when I said "No" she hung up. I see from the many calls reported this is a spammer/telemarketer.
I am on the Do Not Call List also.
Sounded like an obvious scam... answered, long delay as if going through a 3rd world phone bank... then the pitch for a "free" $60 gift card, and wanted my name, address and email... "Not interested" and in broken English she just kept on talking up until I hung-up the phone. Not sure if it is a phish or another hustle but damn sure annoying.
Got called by this number, I am 16 and on my mothers cell plan. So I picked up one day and I am going to do a bit of swearing here so don't get mad. Me - WHATS UP MOFO, YOU GOT MY MONEY? Scammer - Is this the number for Dawn ***** Me - No and I am tired of you effers phoning, I will be in contact with the local law enforcement at Texas too look into this number and next time you phone I will have your number tracked.... (They have not phoned back since)
Called during 2 minute silence on Rememberance Day. 11 AM Pacfic. Look up the customs, holidays, and times of the people you are calling if you are calling to another country. I'm not going to buy whatever it is you are selling when you are disrupting a ceremony. IDIOTS!
"Builders Square" called asking for the owner by name. He's been retired for over 15 years. Asked to take a message and they hung up. The owner informed me that he's been receiving calls for me coming from "Menards" in Michigan, we don't have them in Florida. Weird!
these assholes from Sanantonio, Texas (Mcimetro Access Transmission Services LLC) have called my number always around noon, on Sept. 26, Oct 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 24, and 25th. I wish I could get down there to San Antonio Texas and ram their phone up their ass, the annoying thieving pricks. GET A JOB LIKE EVERYONE ELSE AND STOP TRYING TO STEAL PEOPLES IDENTITY. I don't answer the phone but they never leave a message. I spoke to my phone service provider and they said they can't block the calls because it's not a toll free number. If there was money in it for them, they would block the number.
I have been receiving calls from this number to my pay-as-you-go cell phone in Nova Scotia, Canada almost every day between 12-1 pm for weeks!!!!! Busy signal when I call them back (from my landline) ... undeliverable text messages. Who the heck are they are why won't they leave me alone!!!!
this # keeps on calling me, but not enough time for me to be able to answer it! Never leave a message though. Been calling me everyday for few weeks now. I dont answer phone call that i dont recognize. Usually call me 2-4 times a day. Not so cool!!!
I live in N.L CANADA and this same # called my cell. I will never pick up to such a call and wish to advise donot answer those people, they are con-artists gathering information to steal from hard working citizens i.e wages, savings even your identity. Use a blocker and tracer with your local telephone provider, this will stop the harassment until they use a different #, for once they are blocked they will try another route but keep blocking and tracing. Their type of living is scamming and they will not give up for they are most likely desperate or greedy therefore they act with no conscience. I intend to G.P.S their ass's for all I know they may be routing their location as Texas but they are most likely using an Eygptian Phone service/disposable phone and that will mislead you away from their proper location. For all we know they can be our next door neighbour(s).
the person asked to speak to whoever handles the (they new the carriers name) cell phone bill. When I said i will take a message they said we will call back at another time. I then said "if this is a sales call please take me off the list" they replied "this is not a sales call" and hung up.
Ask for me by name, speaking in Spanish, told him I didn't speak Spanish, that I was on the do not call list and I would be turning them into the Oklahoma Attorney General. He said he didn't speak English.
Lynda Silva Aug 17th, 2011
I got a call from this # today. They said they represented dish network and wanted me to promote on my social network site thier products for $$. ya right. I told her twice I was not interested (politely). then the 3rd time I said" I dont want to sound rude but this is my 3rd time telling you NO and you keep talking." She said in this weird phoney voice " Well you ARE rude and have wasted my time. Have a nice day." and hung up. Here I am trying to get off the phone with her and she's saying Im RUDE and wasted her time. I don't have the concience to be rude. Jerks.
Although i am on the DNC list I am continuously receiving calls from this number I will be reporting them to the Attorney General to. I would like these call to stop. I do not answer calls I do not recognize but I am tired of the hassles of these calls.
Marre - Canada Jul 26th, 2011

D McConnell Jun 15th, 2011
They have called and hung up several times now with no message.
Hang-up when answered.
Dean Stewart Aug 25th, 2010
Online shopping site ONLY, apparently owned by Hope Depot. (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Builders_Square ) So why call ?
Although I am on the DNC List, I have received four different calls from this phone number within the last ten days. The caller ID alsways identifies them as Builders Square. I finally asked just enough questions to get the following information from WILSON DAVIS. They provide Security Services and want to give me a free security system. I told them I am on the Do Not Call List and am reporting them to the Attorney General. They hung up and I went on the Oklahoma Attorney General website and reported them. Others should do the same.
Okie - Tulsa Jun 03rd, 2010
Sorry okie! I didn't mean to take your name. I'll be Okie2.
Caller ID says Builders Square. I thought they went out of business.
Caller ID says Builders Square. I thought they went out of business.
They called my business and told an employee that they would be delivering free stuff in the morning. They are probably going to try to get her to sign something. I told her not to sign anything and be extra rude. These people need to get a real job!
sounded like gibberish, couldn't understand what was being said. Said Builders Square on caller ID
I received a call from this number today. There is also a New Jersey exchange that turned out to be a call from Nigeria. Some sort of telephone spamming operation.
Carl Johnson Oct 06th, 2009
The only reason I picked this call up was because it had a 210 area code which is where I live. Heard a recording that constantly mentioned Al Roker Jr. and a website called 4S2S.com that I could go to for more fantastic information about this amazing opportunity. Yeah, right! I am also on the DNC list, so I will report these people.
NOT Al Roker Sep 21st, 2009
Called today and yesterday. They left a message both times: This is the Parkening Group with exciting message.... Al Roker Jr. .... enter a contest....
When they called today and the message began recording, I picked up the phone and press different numbers repeatedly, then hung up. Hope that fixes this.
I did a search for "Parkening Group" and found nothing online.
We have been on the Do Not Call list for a long time, and don't know why these calls have started now.

Just missed a call and since I work for a global company, I called back ( within 1 minute mind you) and it said I had reached a non-working number.
