This man just called me at 11am and said that he was from tec. support that my computer came up with a error and that he was calling to help me fix it now i was on my computer which was crazy. but i said nothing sent a error and if it did i would fix it myself. he said that he had to help that it was his job. I said how did you get my number he said when i set up the computer i added my number in it. I said thats funny how its my husbands computer and he had it before he meet me and my number has never been in it before he could say move i bitched him out and told him if he calls back i will have a layer hunting his ass down and then he tryed to say something when i hung up on him.

this number ((235) 683- 4810) called once about 11AM and then again about 3:30PM. The man, with an Indian, possibly Middle Eastern, accent told me that I had some grant money. I asked how I recieve this and he said I applied for it about 6-8 months ago. I then asked what the money was for, apparently I could use it for anything. I continued to question how I was getting this money while he was asking if I needed money. I told him yes I needed money but I did not apply for it. he asked again if I wanted the grant or to decline and take my name off, I barely finished the sentence of wanting my name taken off when he abruptly hung up on me.

Just got a call from this number but they left no message. After reading these posts, it's pretty clear it's a scammer. The information below says to put your name on the DNC list....like that helps. I get calls all the time from people ignoring the DNC. Reporting them does little to no good. Maybe we should get after the phone companies who allow these creeps to continue?

I just started getting calls from this number a couple of days ago. I answered it a couple of time and no response just silence. I tried calling it back and it says that the number is no longer in service, But i keep getting calls from this number. 2356834810. Creepy weird. One question, how can a number be completely anonymous??

This number is a part of a computer virus. DO NOT return the call or it will use your phone to call 100 other numbers. Tmobil is a provider that is working discovering the start place and a solution to this problem.

This number/caller is DEFINITELY a vicious SCAM! They claim to be from Microsoft Windows and are receiving some bad information from YOUR computer, and they want to guide you through fixing it.

They all have foreign (Pakistani or East Indian, etc.) accents and I believe they call from California. They are DEFINITELY COMPUTER HACKERS - trying to get you to go to your computer and give them info from it - SO they can access your computer and get your passwords to bank accounts and anything they want - which they will be able to do whenever they want.

They have been exposed by police in the USA and here in Saskatchewan, Canada. The police even placed a warning article in our local newspaper about them, and TV News have also done articles on them. They called me again yesterday, and I interrupted him and told them in an angry voice "You are NOT 'Windows'; this is a SCAM, and I am reporting your phone number to the police right now"; then I hung up. Problem is, they keep changing their phone numbers.

Some people simply say they HAVE NO COMPUTER, which, when they hear that, they will hang up. They have called me about half a dozen times the past 2 years. As soon as I hear their accent I can tell it is them when they try to say they are from Microsoft Windows.

There is a way to block some phone numbers with some telephone companies. Ours, SaskTel, allows to block the 'last caller'. However, some callers, like collection agencies, you can not block.

Called just a few minutes ago. Telemarketer of some sort.

I just received this phone call, and I immediately hung up. When I called back 10 minutes later, the number was disconnected. Obvious scam.

A woman with an East Indian sounding accent called and claimed that my computer was not responding to Windows Updates attempts to contact my computer. I couldn't understand the name of where she claimed to be calling from. She asked if I was sitting in front of my computer and that they could help me fix it. (Yeah right!) I told her I didn't trust any cold calls making such claims. She offered to connect me with another operator. I told her my Windows Update was working just fine and Microsoft would have no reason to contact me if my WU was not working. She then quickly said thank you for your time and hung up knowing i wasn't buying her bull***. I wondered who would be gullible enough to allow her to take control of their computers to "fix" any issues as I was sure she intended to establish a remote connection to hack into mine. I fear for seniors who may not know any better.

Scammers. State you computer has a virus. They get you to look for a file on PC (which computer will have as it is part of the OS) then get you to download a file to your PC. You then have a virus which will cost you money to remove.
