Who Called Me From 512-961-8342?
Received call: wanted to clear virus from my computer. Told him my son was coming over and wanted to take care of the problem. He gave me this number and name Brad Cooper
Callers from India claiming to be receiving messages about "infections" on my computer. They will talk you through a series of steps and tell you your computer is full of bad files. Seems legit when you're on the phone, but in the end, when I asked how much it would cost to clear the computer, they said the scan would be free but the cleanup might cost something. They told me "don't go on the internet anymore until you call me back." My guy was "Sam Maxwell." Yeah, right. More like Sanjay. Just go and get one of the commercial packages like McAfee--you'll still have online support for problems.
Received call from "Stewart" in the "technical department, Windows Operating System". Told me that they're receiving info that my system is being hacked and offered to provide the CLS ID# from my computer to prove that he's legit. He said he'd walk me through a series of steps to identify the problem. I declined his help, but called the number back out of curiosity. Same guy answered, I hung up. Glad I checked here...
Same story as above. Someone with a heavy Indian accent called and identified himself as Jake Barker. He said he was calling on behalf of Microsoft and they had discovered my computer was being hacked. He also said if I logged on to my computer he could show me where the problem was. I asked for his phone number and contact information and that I would call him back if I determined he was legit. Jake couldn't provide a reliable third party who would confirm his story. Glad I found this thread. Not sure what they are up to, but I'm very leery of giving someone I don't access to my computer, even if they are Indian with an American sounding name.
I am happy with the services and support provided by them.
It is not so,what Brad Cooper showed me in my computer was rectified.I am glad they called me in right time.
This is decidedly a scam. I could hear another heavily Indian accented voice in the background reading from the same script as the con artist who was calling me. Apparently the " authorized service center" is receiving notifications that I am downloading files that are infecting my computer. I played along a bit to see where he would go with this and he wanted me to run a script. Heck no way! I hate the thought that these scumbags are out there and hope no one gets caught up in something that causes them harm or costs them money, time or worry.
MR ALEX CALLED ME AND I PAID 280$ AND I AM VERY GLAD FOR HIS SERVICES AND THANK HIM CAUSE HE CALLED ME AT RIGHT TIME.
