Caller: Supposed to be an IT Company telling you your computer is being hacked
They will ask you to perform an event viewer task on your computer. obviously their will be some errors or warning caused by either DNS or some trusted application you installed on your computer. They will then proceed to tell you these errors are because hackers are trying to get into your computer and will them try to get your personal information.
Caller: Bogus IT company
Told me he was from an IT company and was I in front of my computer. I told him yes, but as a practising witch I could sense impending evil and so concocted a karma spell that would forever bestow terrible luck and misfortune on the next person with dishonest intent towards me. He hung up before I was able to tell him how to reverse it.
Caller: Tom Smith with an Indian Accent
This moron who said he was from Telstra saying I had an infected computer. Same as all the other posts on this page. I downloaded an ap and played him sirens, farts, explosions, pig grunts etc. He listened for a while then hung up. He rings me quite a bit but never talks now. He knows its me and I have my ap ready to play to him. He only rings on the landline and I find it quite amusing. I have found a new sound box ap that plays someone spewing and someone having a crap. Thats what hes getting next time he rings
Caller: (03) 9133 6542
Rings often, usually around the middle of the day period.
One of the many scammers on the Landline who ring my number.
Minimum benefit to me is that it proves the line is still functional otherwise it never rings.
Free included line in a Telstra package.
Asked me if I was the computer owner. Then asked if I was in front of it. I was asked what key is on the bottom left of the keyboard. I said ctrl. Then asked what was the next key and the next. Which happens to be the windows key.
I was instructed to depress the window key and the letter ‘R’ at the same time for at least 3 seconds.
I was asked what I could see on my screen.... I straight away asked him what I was suppose to be seeing on my screen... there were a few low key bleeps then he said thank you then hung up without answering my question...
I am certain there was two males on the conversation as I could hardly understand him. Then a beep noise in the background came a clearer line and a guy I could understand more....
I tried to call back. But as usual busy line...
My computer is still switch off... I never even started it up....
Caller asked for owner of the computer in the house. Caller: Scammer
Rings at least 10x a day. Scammer.
Caller: Sam from VT Support
Wanted to 'talk to me about my computer'. Claimed to be calling from Brisbane, despite the Vic phone number on call display. Eventually I just hung up.
Caller: 9133 6542 vt support scam
Calls me several times a day for about a month now trying to tell me issue with my computer- funny coz I don’t have a computer. Told the guy he is a scammer and to fk off and he said no ma’am no scam and I said yes and fk off and hung up. Then a lady rang not long after I hung up. I have blocked the number but it’s still calling
Caller: (03) 9133 6542
Scam - Indian lady calling telling me the computer is compromised. i know this is false as the computer is managed by the company number she called.
Caller: IT person
Said I had been hacked, I asked which of my computers, he said my personal one, I said I had three and two business. He said the one that was currently on, I replied three were on two personal one business, I asked for the IP address. He gave a very long number, told me to press windows button (by which time I had turned off my ONLY computer) I said done, he said enter Events into search bar, I said done, he asked what I could see and I said all of my word and excel documents that were called or included the word Events, he then said add vwr to the events word, I said done and again he asked what I could see, again I said my personal files. At this point he said he needed to get his supervisor who came to the phone and was a different person so there are definitely more than one person involved. He told me to type in r and press enter, I said done and he said what could I see I replied nothing. He then told me to type in Run and press enter and again asked what I could see. I said there was a warning on my screen NOT to continue, he hung up., just when it was getting to be fun.
3 calls today from this number Have had 10 calls in the last 2 days from this number. Just answered said she was from BP, I swore and asked that they never contact me again Caller: This number every hour!
I get a call from this number every hour from about 11:30am onwards
Thank you for sharing this
Rings constantly, sometimes 4 x a day. I don’t answer as I don’t answer the home phone unless it’s family or a local number. Came on here to check it out & am now tempted to give the phone to my 6yr old next time it rings & tell her it’s one of Santa’s Elves & they want to know her Christmas wish list Had call from this num yesterday and god knows how many other times, and today had a call that caller ID said was from overseas. Number listed as 1613 91336542. Same num but diff prefix and o/s. Yet another missed call from this number.
No message was left.
I'm becoming very tired of these calls.
Caller: An Indian sounding bloke
A guy pretending he was from Microsoft support called me about 6 pm as I was making dinner. He told me that my computer was being compromised by hackers and he would 'like' to help. Asked me if my computer was close so I told him it was and I'll go and get it and switched on as asked. I put the phone down and continued making dinner. Eventually, I heard the phone disconnect from his end. He obviously got a hint that I was on to him.
Just got 2 calls from this number telling me things were wrong with my computer and I need to fix it... told him I don't have one.... so I hung up. He promptly rang me back and asked why I hung up. Told him I never heard of his company and would never do anything over the phone from someone I don't know
