  • Ready this time
    I don't know the caller phone number as I don't have caller ID burt it sound the same. This is the 2nd time I've had one of these calls. The first time, I must admit, I was pretty gullible. This time I was ready though. These people are the scum of the earth. Old folks like me are wary about the internet as it is. It makes it even scarier. I am on the do not call register so these people shold not be ringing. But only honest people obey the law!

    Number I was given was (02) 8005 0590 said he was in Sydney.  His name was Adam from Windows technical department PC help nd he told me that my computers Firewall was not working and it was allowing someone to illegally download Windows data.  He asked me to go into Start > Run, when I stopped him and asked him who he was and how could I confirm his details.  He gave me the above phone number, when I did not call him back after 10 minutes he called back and got abit short.  I told him I would investigate and call him back, called Telstra no number listed.  Think this was a hoax too.

    Got a call from this same number. They said they were calling from Sydney. I let them ramble on for a while before asking them what the time was. He kept asking me why I want to know them time. I said 'just tell me'. "We dont have any clocks in the office" he said. (as if).Eventually he said hold on and came back with "its 5 o'clock". It was 5.30 here and co-incidentally it was on the hour in India (12pm).While this was going on I rang their number using another phone and it was engaged.Abuse followed back and forth before he hung up.10 minutes later I rang the number, the same guy answered. I asked "can I have your bank details please". He replied with "pardon". I asked again, and he asked "why". To which I said "you want my computer info so I want your bank details". He replied "Oh, Fu*K off"

    Yup I too got a call mid last week at about 8pm. Which seems late for any telemarketers call.Said he was from Windows, and my computer had error alerts sent to Windows.Indian accent.This guy seems pushy, didn't have a conscience, and had a do-as-I-say-attitude.I could hear a 'clicking' sound on the other side of the line.I let him ramble on, clicked on a few commands he wanted via the 'run' command to pop-up files/folders. He was warning me that my computer was sending Windows error messages. Yeah right.Then said something about going on the internet and typing 'www.support.me'.I didn't and found it very suspicious.I told him I would call him back, asked for his name and number - Frank Ster (hum, a pseudonym for Prankster?) and the number (02) 8005 1786.Then I hung up...it is a scam.http://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/security/359233/the-unstoppable-tech-support-scamAnd why can't the authorities stop it??
  • exposed but not gullible
    Two hours later and i've just had another call from these bar stewards.  this time a woman very hard to understand with poor english and a very poor line but she gave me the very same number and address.  Wouldn't it be interesting for someone to call around there and pay these people a courtesy call.  Does anyone on here live anywhere or pass through "15 elliot st sydney" i assume it's the one near beacon hill?
