    Yes I have had same caller 25/01/2017, they are very forceful insisting they have to fix a Windows Computer Fault and call back a few times if you tell them they are Scammers and not to phone ---they threaten to keep calling night and day. In hindsight perhaps I should have told them I have a MAC and not a Windows PC!

    Just a silent call yesterday. Thought it might be a scam. I have played with them before, left them hanging on for ages while I get my computer running, pretended I was starting my microwave, anything to use their time up. But it is a nuisance.

    Call from this number today, a lady with an asian accent calling herself Lisa. Claimed to be from Windows support. I did explain to her that I was aware of this scam and wouldn't be falling for it and she got very agitated.

    Said I had problems with windows, he was windows technical dept (yes!- NO!)
    Very loud abusive arrogant etc. Called me names. Still shouting at me.
    Usually, if I am not in a rush, I toy with them, I usually ask for my IP address (they do not know it), (should have said I just had my windows cleaned as previous comment), but he was just too in your face! So hung up.
    Asian accent, bad line, TOTAL SCAM.
