Hung up on my answering machine as soon as they realized no one was going to answer. Why can't we do something about all these illegal telemarketing calls? It doesn't mean squat that you are on the Do Not Call list.
I have gotten this call 2 times, and today; 2013/10/04 16:49:26 - they tried to say hello. I could hear many people with accents in the background. I am on the no call list, also.
If I don't recognize the name, I don't answer. Then, I report the number to Telemarketing Guard.

Have fun with them until they hang up on you. Adopt an Indian accent and tell them your name is Sukma Dik or Munchma Kuchi. Tell them to go down to the street, shoot a Brahma bull and take it home for a bb-q. Tell them to go defecate in the Ganges. Be more annoying than they are. Or you can just do the airhorn thing.
These A holes didn't leave a message. The phisher/ID thieves on the Internet are having trouble
Caller ID "Marketing Fraud." This is the first time that I have seen a scammer with an honest "moniker." And, yes, it was the PC Tech Scam. My wife answered the phone, and abruptly told the foreign-accented scammer that we are aware of his scam. He hung up. At least, someone, somewhere, somehow had a sense of humor in the Caller ID. Maybe this should be an on-going requirement for all Telcos who are delivering these calls.
Call from " MARKETING FRAUD", wanted to know if I had a computer. I said yes & are you recording this conservation, (as there was alot of feedback in the phone. He hung up on me ! Ruined my fun, I was gonna take him "on an old lady confusion scenario". Dang, I was ready for him too.

"NOT IN SERVICE" shows up on the caller ID. They are calling from a call center overseas but identified themselves as being from Microsoft and stated since we used their operating system, he could be of service. Beware of the scam - they want your credit card number to "upgrade" your service. Do not give them ANY information.
The caller had a heavy accent and sounded like he was calling from the side of the Interstate. Said he was from Microsoft. I just hung up on him.

Got an obvious VISA scam call from this number. Heavy accent. Trying to get information to get into my computer system and/or my VISA card info. I didn't let the call get too far before I told them that I know they are trying to scam me and if they called back I would report them to the FBI or the CIA (since they were claiming an international charge to my VISA). Reported it to my local police who will most likely not be able to do anything about it. By the end of the call the man was cursing me in a foreign language. Sounded like Arabic or something close to that. They have called before claiming to be an IT company that Microsoft hired to fix a problem with Windows. Didn't fall for it then either. I'm thinking of getting an air horn for then next time they call.
Scam using the ploy of something wrong with my windows program that needs to be repaired.
tired of this person calling..
Same thing as Eva, I'm in the US. I'm an IT professional, and I smelled a rat when Microsoft Support shows up Not in Service. I let them attempt to "guide" me, them wanting me to give my unique CPU ID and traceroute info. Nice try, no thanks.
Person with very thick accent said it was "Windows Technical Department"... As stated by others, it is a scam to get you to go to a website so they can "fix" a problem with your computer.It's a scam to gain access to your personal computer. DON'T FALL FOR IT!!
I didn't answer. Only 5 min ago I got a call from another number 971-217-9508
, they hung up pretty much as soon as I answered, I'm pretty sure it's same scam calling now. I live in Sweden, phone calls from a US-number when it is in the middle of the night in the states...... -sounds like scam to me!
Shane was the agent at this number. When I asked if he was going to try to sell me things he said "F*** you" and hung up. I am on the do not call list. I have to say that being on this list hasn't reduced the numbers of calls at all as most are now originating form the US.

This phone number belongs to scamming artists: They pretend to be calling from Microsoft, telling you that there is a problem with your computer, offering you to help out and asking you to download programs. The programs then turns over full access to your computer, and as such, gives the scammers complete control over your personal information and IP address. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM - MICROSOFT DOES NOT KNOW YOUR PHONE NUMBER, AND THEY DO NOT MAKE HOUSE CALLS LIKE THIS.

Man said that our IP address was sending a message and that our computer was in danger. He had a strong India accent and would not answer as to who he was or who he represented, said we had a bad connection, which we didn't. Told him not to call back and hung up.

Hoax call from "Technical support regarding Windows 7"
Sounded like an Indian woman, I told her to get a proper job, and then she called me "Bloody motherfxx bastard" and hung up.
