Jim said: This group has called before. The caller speaks with a thick accent, claims to be from"Windows Service Department. He claims my computer sends hundreds of error messages to Windows. I told him this is impossible b/c the computer doesn't work. He then tries to tell me that when the computer did work errors were sent when I tried to identify contacts as family. I said really? The computer hasn't worked for over a year. He then days he's going fix all. My problems and that I should just turn on the computer. I repeated that I could not because it did not turn on! He then asked when he should call back. I asked why he would call back if the computer doesn't work. I then added, or are u going to send someone to my house to fix it? He says, I'm going to fix it. I said, Really, you're going to send somebody to my house to fix my computer. He said yes! And I said, "great, who is going to be coming to my home and when can I expect them?" Mr. I-will-fix-all-your- problems was trapped. Busted. No where to run, no where to hide. Then I almost felt bad for him thinking he doesn't understand English. He tries again to have me turn on the computer and he can fix it. I told him again, the computer is broke, it won't turn on, hadn't turned on in over a year. No response. I ask again, "Who is coming to my home to fix my computer? When can I expect them?" At this point he was for mumbling something incoherently into the phone. Not understanding, I calmly said, "Excuse me, I couldn't hear what you just said." Then, in a very clear, audible voice he slowly says each of the following words very slowly to make sure I heard him. And what did this professional Windows Service Department have to say? "You are a mother f*cker." I laughed and said right, you're with Windows. I continued laughing while he hung up the phone.
I am sick and tired if these low-life criminals trying to steal from innocent users like myself. Who is protecting our kids sand senior citizens from these ass-wiping oxygen thieves who shame their family and the country they are from or try to sound like they are from. This phone # is out of NY. Unless it is possible to use several sites and servers to throw off trackers, it seems the phone company, Homeland Security, and the companies being falsely represented CAN DO BETTER AT STOPPING THESE CRIMINALS! I find it hard to believe the US Government employs equipment that listen and record thousands of communications simultaneously, but can't figure out who or where a spamming piece of garbage is calling from. I find it absurd that a clear foto of a license plate can be taken from outer space but a spammer calling on land & cell phone lines is invisible.
Why do corporate loss prevention personnel, private security companies, police forces, and government monitoring agents and agencies not find it suspect when a one-bedroom apartment or a single-family dwelling has 5 or more phone lines and/or numbers? Or a location that has hundreds and thousands of outgoing calls made around the clock 365 days a year doesn't raise an eyebrow? Why are dwellings with four or more welfare benefit cards/checks are distributed, for example, to four or more different people "living" in the same exact studio, one, two, or three-bedroom apartment, house, trailer, or loft? Ugggghhhh! I just want to scream.... Is there no common sense? Perhaps. Fear of retaliation? Possibly. Partners in crime? Not unlikely. So many possibilities.... so little interest in pursuing....
I have done more then my share of rambling for one day.... good night.
cmc said: caller was Hispanic male. He was trying to speak to me in Spanish. I couldn't understand a lot of what he was saying, but there was a lot of background "talking" in Spanish as well. Caller began laughing whenever I asked him who he wanted to speak to in Spanish and immediately hung up.
TayMac said: This number called my house at 5am. No message was left as I couldn't get to the phone after they woke my kids! I would call back but it seems after a quick Google search, this area code is unassigned in North America. If anyone else knows more about this number I would love to hear it.
