Complaints this year
I just received one of these calls from a David Morgan 8762807400 claiming I won Publishers Clearing House. I called the REAL PCH scam hotline to report it. They, in turn, report it to the FTC.
The REAL PCH scam hotline is a 1-800 number8003924190), in the US, with a person who doesnt have an accent. They want to know about these scams.

Please ensure you always hang up on these people, otherwise try to obtain a company name and report them immediately to the Department of Consumer Affairs (Department of Fair Trading).

She wanted me to delete some junk of my computer. I repeatedly asked her how she got my number and she wouldnt anwswer.. HOW DO THEY GET OUR NUMBERS

I had dile up so they gave me a number to call back and i researched the number so i will not be calling them back. i was suprised that the number was Australian because they did not sound Australian but the warning bells were going of... the guy told me his name was Dominic

I have received numerous calls from the PC Doctors. Last night, "Jonathon" gave me this number and I rang it while he was talking to me and I got a recorded message. He told me there was a virus that had infected 27,000 computers in my area. I responded with "that's BS". He was offended. In the end I told him I had a new Mac and he said I didn't have a problem then. On Saturday, a lady rang me and told me that "our" government was looking into these viruses etc. She admitted she was calling from India.
