Caller: CT Computers
SCAM Microsoft Call - Cold Call
Caller: Scam callers claiming to be from Microsoft.
Caller has been calling twice a week for 2 weeks now, normally mid afternoon and again at dinner time. The first time I answered it was a scammer claiming to be from Microsoft about an issue with my computer, I keep them on the phone for about an hour to waste their time, but they got very abusive and they hung up on me. I added the number to my blocked numbers on my phone, but because it is a 'Ghost' number that they are calling from and not the displayed number, blocking appeared to do nothing. They keep calling and there is apparently no way to stop them calling. Reported to authorities and telco as now it is just hangup calls that they are providing.
An Indian sounding man from VT Computer Support, apparently from Qld, but I queried why the number was from an 08 area code, he said to not worry about that. He was very pushy & wanted me to enter information into my internet search area. I wish these people would stop annoying us and put their energies into something more useful. Caller: another computer scammer... not very clever
background noise ... indian male accent ... typical stupid script
Still calling with their scam. Interesting to see the response that said 'I HAVE INSTALLED THE TELSTRA PROVIDED PORTABLE PHONE THAT BLOCKS ALL SCAMMERS...….IT IS CALLED THE CALL GUARDIAN 301. THE BEST THING WE HAVE DONE AS NO SCAMMERS HAVE GOT THROUGH SINCE INSTALLING IT. FANTASTIC. LANDLINE PHONE THOUGH SO NOT SUITED TO MOBILES.’ I hadn't heard of it but will be looking into it. Caller: Scam
Scammer claims to be Kevin from Microsoft. Asked him if he was a scammer. Kevin assured me he wasn't. Kept him busy for a while until he hung up calling me a time waster.
Scammers purporting to be from BT support

Only answer known numbers or those who leave a legitimate message - this one didn't. Rang my Mobile and in an Indian voice he said " my name is Steven and I am from IT we have detected a problem on your home Computer that we need to fix".I said I do not have a home Computer only Mobile. Steven then very rudely hung up.
