FRUSTRATED said: They left a short, garbled message at 7:09pm last evening and then hung up. All of these online forums seem to be nothing but group therapy sessions because there is no way to punish or stop these bottom feeders from intruding on our privacy and trying to steal our identities. The “Do Not Call List” is a joke. And filing a complaint with the FTC does nothing at all for you (read the fine print at the FTC website). So the very most you can do is block the number and hope they don’t call back on different numbers in the future .

lupus said: Scammer do NOT give any credit card info. They are trying to steal money from you. One called us and I put my husband on phone and he told him not to call and the guy on other end said exact words " put you wife on or I'm going to Fu¢k you hard." My husband about fell over and told him come on over step onto our property and I'll shoot you. Then the guy called more then 20 more times.
Joan said: i played along with this guy with an indian accent who called me just now, says he was in pakistan when making threats and then says he's in san diego. and, though he speaks perfect english, kept lapsing into urdu (i think) sounding like threats. he mentioned sending a bomb and "i will kill the fbi" after i got tired of playing along with him (trying to find out exactly what he would try to have me do). he kept insisting i have to go into "teamviewer.com" so he can "fix" my computer remotely. tried first to say he was from microsoft, then when i told him microsoft doesn't call, he stated he was from an adjunct company that works with microsoft.. i looked up teamviewer on wiki and it says it's for connecting computers; this criminal who called me would then have complete access to everything in my computer, and that was his goal. he somehow got the erroneous info that i was 79, he says, so it's obvious he has a list of what are supposed to be old people, so that he can get them to connect their computer with his. not sure how these people make money from hacking the computers. when he first called, he said i had been hacked and he would help me clear things up by having me go to teamviewer, etc. well, i guess i'll call the fbi now, unless anybody who sees this can direct me to another agency to report this to. (today is july 3, 2014.) not that the fbi can do anything about this.
anonymous said: I am getting constant calls from this number. The person calling usually has an East Indian accent and purports to be from Yahoo telling me that my computer has been hacked into. I am sure this is a scam. I have repeatedly told them not to call again, but they keep calling.
anonymous said: They claim to be Microsoft support saying that my computer is sending encripted viruses to their servers. They want you to enter your I.P. address so they could check it out. This is not the first time they have called. I told them once that I didn't have a computer and they did not want to believe me and this time I told them that I didn't care what my computer sent out virus wise that it worked fine for me. The guy on the phone sounded like he was from India. I wish I could reach through the phone and choke the living sh*t out of these people
