    The Indian gentleman on the phone called up and said his name was Jeff, he said I had a problem with my computer, I told him I think he's right! I played a long for a while, then he clicked on to what I was doing, I then told him I knew from the start what he was doing... I told him I live in GREAT Britain, where there's money, money all my money! He kept calling me back and laughing down the phone and whispering and saying he wanted me, not my money. I told him I wouldn't be answering the phone again as I am sure this phonecall is costing me money that's why when they phone here, they waffle on for AGES trying to keep talking not letting you talk, they want to keep you on the phone as long as they can so my advice is, if a phonecall sounds dodgy, or more like if the guy calling you up "sounds" dodgy then they usually are so hang up.

    01279831974 called - I knew it was a scam but let the guy waffle on so as to waste his time a bit (while he was talking to me, he wouldn't be scamming someone else, and I wasn't paying for the call anyway), but eventually I got bored and told him I had Faronics Deep Freeze so I was always working in a virtual environment, and Kaspersky 2015, and that he should get himself a decent job instead of black-mailing, threatening and stealing from vulnerable people, then put the phone down on him.
    Probably an Indian-manned call centre, judging by the accents and racket in the background, and probably a false number front, but I couldn't be bothered to ring back to find out. he-he :-)

    Just received a phone call from an idiot claiming he works for Tech Support! Wanted me to go to my computer and he would tell me how to protect myself from computer viruses. Asked him where he was based and after a hesitation he said Greater London. When I asked him for the firm's address and postcode he ignored the question and kept returning to his script! When I continued to ask him for his address he hung up

    He just called me and I asked where he attained my number from. He replied in his very strong Indian-like accent "what? What?" and within 3 seconds hung up.

    Called by these people today. Judging by the tone of voice, the caller was Indian in origin. He tried to frighten me with claims of viruses, pop-ups and the like. It came across like a bad Internet Safety video from the early 90's.

    He tried to ascertain what computer I had, and asked for the permission of the bill payer to gain access to the computer. I confronted him and he was very adamant that he didn't represent an ISP of any kind, and was part of the "Tech Support" company. He claimed the independent business was situated in London, and seemed to be covering himself with legal loopholes with every passing second.

    I asked him to remove my number from his database, which he claimed was from public information or some such excuse. I then threatened to report the call and the number to the police, to which he hung up immediately after a weak bout of contesting his innocence.

    Avoid these scumbags at all costs.

    Owner: "Tech Support."

    Had phone call from this number from someone sounding like they were from the Philippines. Beware it is a 'computer scan' they tell you your computer is under threat from viruses!!! They want you to go through a process with them, then they have access to your computer!! Don't be fooled.
