I received a phone call from a foreign speaking man. He told me that my computer was sending out error messages and that he needed to access it to take care of the problem. When I asked what my IP address was, he stated that he could not access that, but he could give me my License Number (which I found out is the same as the Product number). When I looked at my Product Number, it was not even close to what he was rattling off, but was in fact a 25 character/digit Product Code. When I said, "Not even close." He began yelling at me and asking, "How do you know license number? How do you know license number?" over and over again. I finally hung up on him, but could still hear him as I was hanging up yelling the same question over and over. March 25th at 1:30 p.m. EST.
Thanks for all you guys' feedback! Good thing I didn't answer I would have played along. Lol! Thanks again for your feedback!
"This is William. I am a technician calling about your computer problem." I told him this is the dumbest conversation I've ever heard and hung up. He did have an Eastern sounding accent.

Fake computer virus scam.
This number called my cell today, it was a gentleman with a thick accent, stating that there was an issue with my IOS and that hackers were getting my information. When I tried to get off the phone he pushed me to get a call back time...he seemed desperate. It was totally a scam, I just said I was good, thanked him and hung up. I would not answer this number if it calls you.

I saw this number on the caller ID but didn't answer the call as I didn't recognize the number. I googled the number and it looks to be a scammer claiming to be from Microsoft and trying to access people's computers remotely by saying they are getting Microsoft error messages. Definitely block this number.

Called me on my cell. I didn't recognize number so didn't answer. Pretty sure we should all follow the same procedure.
Stupidly I answered. Chinese accent or similar. Said it was about my windows operating system on my computer. I told him I didn't know what he was talking about, I said thank you and hung up.
He called back. I didn't answer. He had the audacity to leave a message, he said "hey you, you bitch, listen to me" and hung up!!
These people need to be stopped!!
This person said it was part of the IT department of my company, that a virus was detected on my PC and remote access was needed.... FRAUD!
Just got a call from Charlie with a Chinese accent... He said he had info on repairing my Apple or Mac computers... I told him that they promised me my new computer to be delivered today... Then I got my address , which was wrong , but then told him that it was coming to my business, correct?.. Charlie said " Yes" I told him I worked at the Consumer's Association of Fraud... He hung up..
