This is a legit number. However if you receive a call from this number it is a scam. I called Geek Squad.
He confirmed that this was a good number, He also said Microsoft would not call you.
I receive call said he from Microsoft and email need to be updated and want me to my computer for he can fix it. So said let me have number for I can check with Microsoft
Some India dude running phishing scam. Got him pissed off and cussed me out
+1 (800)642-7676 - THIS IS A SCAM! Some Indian guy called me saying he was with apple and that my account had been hacked/logged in at Ohio and Texas, and that I should give him my information so he could fix it. Hell nah, not today!

Same deal as others have said. Scam attempt to get money by stating my computer was infected with a virus.
They called couple minutes ago and asked if they were talking to “Maria” which is actually my name then he proceeds to tell me my email and then asked if I was below 40 or above 40 I said below, then ask my exact age, I asked “who’s this “ he proceeds to say “fuck you” and hung up the phone. Oh and he had Indian accent.

800-642-7676. Some rude Indian guy called and when I answered the phone asked if I knew anything about XXXXXXX@outlook.com email address and I said of course I did. He said than I have some news that will interest you, you have been logged in at and named several cities and states, then asked have you been traveling? I know the BS was going to fly at this point. He asked me to get in front of my computer and he would "walk me through" the steps we had to take. He asked "exactly what time can I call you and he would help my fix the issue." I told him I would call him when I needed him...that's how it works in this country! He gave me a bogus number that was not the number that the call came in on. If you call the 800-642-7676 number the message that you get when it answers could lead someone to believe that they called Microsoft. The number he gave me to call back was 800-102-1000
, another bogus number. At the end of the conversation I told him to get his ass back on his magic carpet and fly his scamming ass back from where he came. OK, that was rude but really!
For those of you who wonder about how these creeps Know your daughters name for instance, it is easy to find using a people finder product online. For more organized scams AI is so available and able to dissect data so finely it is very scary. This is the age of social engineering and it is an art form. If ANYONE gave me their Facebook info I know your entire family in minutes...how? Pretty simple, I look at a picture on you Facebook site, get the GPS coordinates of a picture you have posted, read the caption and find out it is your home so I know exactly where you live, now I find everyone that has the same last name and look for a picture with the same GPS coordinates. Mind you...I work in technology, specifically in Cybersecurity and this is a very simple example. With an algorithm you can do this 10 million times in the space of minutes. Personally, I don't have a Facebook page because of this type of reality. People can find out who you are without much effort.

They are som weird sick fuckers
I was called today from this number, caller said he was from Microsoft and my computer was being hacked. He was very hard to understand & got angry & aggressive. I did start to do things he asked until I got to screen that told me to "beware of continuing," at which time I stopped. He said, "well if I were a hacker would I be calling to warn you." I immediately hung up & shut down my computer. Yep almost fell for it, don't you!!
They said there pizza hut and i gave them an ass chew ing cause i herd there stupid bass in the back ground
They called my daughters phone asking to speak with her older sister, I told the guy I was the Mom and he continued to ask to speak with my daughter, I then responded with no and if he continued or calls back I was calling the sheriff's office to report the number needless to say he hung up really quickly.
said they were from cox.com asked for my dob when I asked why man replied " i told you i am calling from cox.com and I need it for documenting purposes.." . Blocked

Okay so basically I'm gay, and gay people go absolutely bonkers for EA's the sims. It lets us lead the lives we could never have. Anyways, so I'm trying to download some mods for the sims and I get a pop up saying my computer was infected. I was s h a k e n to the c o r e and called the number stat because I didn't want to explain to the guys at the geek squad how I got a virus trying to download sex mods for the sims. So, I call this bitch up like "tf is wrong with my computer". She told me my voice was a recording and to never call her again. I then realize this curry mf is trying to scam my ass but she didn't even want to. She could've fooled my dumbass in a snap but didn't even A T T E M P T. Pooja, what IS this behaviour? Anyways, these ppl are typical indian con artists and double dog dare one of you hoes to start talking about how Kashmir belongs to Pakistan with one of them.
Called a few minutes ago. Caller, with very poor pronunciation, explain he was calling to perform maintenance on my wife's computer. Wanted to know if she had it in front of her. She said she doesn't have a computer. He hung up. This is definitely a scam call.
8006427676 EDU, They called me 2 minutes ago and they said they are from microsoft which I expected them to call me, cause few days ago I have requested microsoft to call me. But still when he asked me for my age I said how can you prove that this not a scam, and he said some bad words and ... .
This number is scam.
Cid says Microsoft. Typical scammer calling to say they dectected my computer was "89% infected".
Could hear dozens of voices in background giving similar speil.
Boiler room con artists.
SPOOFING a legit Microsoft phone number.
Last week it was " Apple" calling.
The called identified himself as Anthony. I asked him what he wanted. He said "I can punch you in your face, you know" "don't talk like that and hung up.
This # called my office line on 4/29/19 at 11:02am CST with called ID # that belongs to Microsoft. He wanted me to access an email account, when I asked him why, he said "This is no scam" which made me even more suspicious. When I told him I do not have access at this time he said " Mother Fu--er" I said "Excuse me!" and hung up on him. Definitely a scam - AVOID this number!
This number came up Microsoft Corp. Avoid!!!!!!
This number called me at work and claimed that my email had been showing activity in Ohio and other states (I live in Texas). What concerned me is that the caller (Indian-accented man with surprisingly decent English) knew my first name, last name, and my professional email address. I just told him he was using the oldest trick in the book and hung up. Do NOT answer calls from this number, and if you must, don't give them ANY information!!
Got an alert on my computer that said "call 1-800-642-7676" DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER its spam. They also told me that they had used my IP address and I use a chrome book. They are trying to get your information. Shut down your phone / computer / ect. Down fast
This Number comes up as Booker T.Washington Middle School on Call ID. Scam guard shows it as scam caller
Someone just called me and after I wouldn't answer any of his questions and continued asking him what was this concerning,he told me my phone was hacked and my number was being used without my permission. What concerns me he knew my daughters name.

Called me 3 times in a period of 15 minutes. I didnot answer. They didnot leave a message. Just asked is anyone there over and over. Scam
This is a phone number linked with Microsoft, so beware. I received a call with a gentleman saying I had many issues on my PC. I do not, it is a company computer monitored 24/7 remotely. If you call this number, you will contact Microsoft. If this number calls you, it is a scam.

This number called me today 2/3/2019 and yesterday, 2/2/2019. I did not answer. Verified the number in internet. Too many spoofed calls...
This number called my cell phone. I don't answer names/numbers I don't know. When I checked voicemail, it sounded like a call center, and the man had a foreign accent (perhaps India). He kept asking if I could hear him or if I was there. I guess he didn't know he was on voicemail. I blocked the number.
Rec'd call earlier broken English said it was Samuel from AOL...
I contacted Microsoft support this evening via their web page, requested a phone call and was contacted within 1 minute from phone number: 425-635-2970
. During this call I was told I needed to speak with their tech support but the transfer line was down. They suggested I call their tech support directly using this phone number: 866-425-8809
, which I did. I spoke with "Julia" who transferred me to Surface support (mistake) who transferred me back to "regular" support who helped me with my computer problem by remoting in.
During the remote session/phone call combo with the friendly Microsoft associate who helped me I received two unanswered calls from 1 (800) 642-7676.
Is this 800 number legit? I honestly don't know. I was helped by the call I requested to Microsoft.

November 14, 2018 This is the genuine # for Microsoft Tech Support. However, they will NOT initiate a call to customers except in the case of a customer having already called them and a "call back" time has been scheduled. Calls coming from that number initially are therefore SCAM. The scammer shows the Microsoft number on their phone in an attempt to fool the receiver. When I called, MS Tech Support took my email address. If you call Microsoft, they will have a case # and notes on their service under your email address when it is legitimately Microsoft who you are dealing with.
I received a call from this number today and the person introduced themselves as Alex. Alex said he was calling in reference to the inquiry I made online about financial aid for school. I said I made no such inquiry and asked him to please remove my name from his company's call list. Alex promptly hung up on me.
Fake Scam Number they are not Microsoft at all. They are in India and scamming people

Spoofed number, BEWARE. Never give access to your computer, to your bank account. Make THEM verify your information to YOU. Do not go to any website that they tell you. If you have troubles with your computer, take it to a reputable business in person, or a person you trust. Do not trust anyone who calls you out of the blue. It's different if you requested help, but if you get a pop up virus on your browser, exit the web page. Do not download anything from the internet or click 'yes' to pop ups.
While this number might go to Microsoft if you call it, spoofers can mask what number they are calling from and are untraceable.
Received a call from "Michael" who was calling from The US Department. I asked which department(since, you know, the US gov is huge), and he answered that I have been awarded a grant and if I knew what a grant was, I answered: yes I do, so he described what a grant was. I said I'm not interested and that he remove my number, so he hung up on me.
Before they were "Microsoft" which is funny since the one computer that I do own that does run Windows has not been booted up in 7+ years, and I have never requested help from Microsoft.

They called twice. I ignored the first, but it immediately rang again and as I was expecting a call, I abswered. The caller barely spoke English. All I got was computer. I immediately hung up. Definitely some type of scam.Blocked number.
Caller ID indentified as Booker T. Washington Middle School. Curious, I answered and the caller said he was from Microsoft. Told him I was not interested and requested that they do not call again. Have since blocked the number.

Hiya caller ID shows it's from, New Ventures Charter School. Have not, will not answer.
Yes its a Microsoft number but only on your caller id. Its fake and you are actually being called by a scam! If you have computer problems be safe and call them because chances are if they are calling you and wanting money it’s probably a scam!
This is an actual Microsoft call. I requested support for changing the business hours on our Bing Places for Business listing earlier in the day, and I received a call a few hours later to confirm that the changes had been published.

I received a call from a lady claiming to be MicroSoft support, bottom line I was scammed out of $350.00. I reported it to the Federal Trade Commission and contacted my bank immediately to cancel the transaction. It was very convincing, I spoke to another "tech" who took control of my computer and said I had to go to Best Buy and purchase an IP Blocking System that MicroSoft would pay for. When I returned home they hacked my account for the 350.
Pennsylvania Nov 03rd, 2017
THIS IS DEFINETELY A SCAM...HAS CONVINCING RECORDING SAYING THEY R MICROSOFT IF U TRY TO CALL THEM BACK...BUT THEY R DEFINETELY NOT WHO THEY SAY THEY ARE, AND IT WAS A WOMAN ON THE PHONE WHICH MAKES U FEEL IT MAYBE LESS LIKELY TO B A SCAM....BUT IT IS..DO NOT GIV THEM ANY INFORMATION AND REPORT THEIR CALL IMMEDIATELY!!!!

This number is NOT a legitimate Microsoft number. Scammers can fake their called IDs. There are many complaints about scams for this number.
Scammer Called stating from Microsoft Tech Support "getting error messages that foreign country trying to access my computer" When I said Microsoft does not call you they hung up!
The telemarketers, spammers, scammers and collection agencies can fake their caller id. It may not be legal in the country they are calling, but legal where they are calling from. ( India is a likely suspect) The best way to get rid of them is to WASTE THEIR TIME, they do not make money if you keep them on the line and take forever to do what they want you to. Act like you are a 90 year old person with a computer, and can't hear them, ask them to repeat things. ' The what key ?' etc. Or you can have lots of fun if you have an Apple computer.
It is especially fun if you get one of the companies calling you saying you have viruses on your computer, even when it is not on. Search youtube for 'fake tech support' , there are several ' calling fake tech support' the objective is to keep them on the phone as long as you can, play dumb, waste their time, they wasted yours calling you, right ? Plus if you tie them up, they can't scam someone else while you have them busy. Have FUN !
Something about Computer and the ID of the phone call was "Computer". It sounds like a scam since I have no issues with my computers.
Call from MICROSOFT. No message left Missed call.
Their number is a scam - they spoofed microsoft
The phone calls stopped for about 2 weeks, then started up again this week. This has to stop!
This phone number has been calling our home for the past few weeks, 3 to 4 times a day! This is ridiculous! Get whomever is doing this!
Everyone receiving calls from this number should call Microsoft Corporation @ 1-800-642-7676
(select technical support for Windows), since they are representing themselves as agents of Microsoft Windows. I filed a complaint today, and they are sending me an email to file an official complaint, and have assigned a case number to my complaint. Microsoft is aware of these scams, and are working to catch these scammers.
This makes no sense. I did not make any call to Microsoft technical support. I think this is a scam. Possibly the caller has hijacked Microsoft tech support phone number. I got a similar call from Washington area based on a different number. Turned out it was a number for a hotel which told me the number had been hijacked.
Caller said I had a computer problem and he was calling from tech support, I told I didn't know what he was talking about and I would get my husband at that time he hung up.
This is indeed Microsoft support. However the tech referred me to a scam website when I refused to pay an exorbitant amount for information to solve my problem. See support.me scam..... Not impressed....
This is most likely a follow-up phone call that Microsoft Customer Support will make in the event that you are disconnected from a live chat troubleshooting session. If you are not interested in reconnecting to your previous conversation or require no further assistance, there should be no reason to accept this call.
this is indeed from Microsoft...I used them this evening for help with an installation!
