I think I could make out some English-sounding words amidst the Hindu gibberish. I shouted at him that he was a criminal and that he would be arrested and imprisoned. I think that sank in, because he disconnected.
I contacted Microsoft directly after receiving a call from this number. They told me unless you request a service call they will not call you and that this is a scam. DO NOT give this caller info or access to your computer, they are not from Windows support or Microsoft.

My mother received a call from this number same story indian man with heavy accent said her pc was downloading unwanted files and sending them error reports and that shed need to put some codes in...she told him she was working and wpuld need to call back...I called back abiut 7 hours later and the same man answered. I asked who he worked for he mumbled something thar ended with "windows". I asked him why my pc would send him error codes and when did Microsoft start representing themselves as Windows or when they started calling because of an issue with someones pc. I told him I already know the scam hes trying to pull and that hes a dumb cunt..he spoke a little more clear and stated he wasnot trying to hack my pc..
I have received multiple calls from this number - cannot understand what they are saying due to a STRONG accent. Told me there was issues with my computer's IP address, I told them I was not experiencing issues and that this was a suspicious call. I then called the number and stated to NOT be contacted again and if I was that I would report it to the authorities.
