    Just had a call this morning at my Fathers house. He said how is your computer and I said fine. He said well Microsoft and that all need cleaning up for antivirus blah, blah, blah he carried on with his spill! Then he said so if you turn on your computer now, I can wait as long as it takes. I said where did you get this telephone number from, as it is my Fathers, he does not have a computer. I said I have a computer, but don't live here. He went mad as if it was all my fault. He kept saying you shouldn't have answered but I just tried to say he should not have phoned, it is a scam........................ He shouted louder and louder and louder, and then put the phone down. I did the redial to get the number. SCAM!

    Man rang to 'repair my computer'. He refused to say which company had authorised his call and tried very quickly to find out if my number was a Personal or Business line. I put the telephone down.

    Keep getting calls from this number - never answer it as I don't recognise it. Goes to answerphone but they never leave a message. Looking thru this page I'm glad I haven't answered it.

    Spoke to somebody at length from this company, they start with the usual scripted speil of 'logging into computer, look at the event log,oh must be infected' told him to cut the bull as I was an IT expert, what are you trying to sell. Gave me his details of company based in India, with offices in the UK offering telephone and remote access online PC support including data recovery at very reasonable monthly subscription, payment by direct debit, which can be stopped any time. Said they took that approach because many PC users do not have a clue about how to prevent things from going wrong. Genuine company, poor marketing technique. IT is booming in India at the moment

    Just had this guy phone me, telling me there was a 'hacking issue' on my computer and I should turn it on straight away as he could help me sort it out. I told him - 'no thanks - everythings fine' and hung up. He was immediately back on the phone asking wht I had hung up, and didn't I understand that there was a hacking issue on my computer, and all I had to do was turn it on and I could see with my very own eyes! I laughed and told him not to bother calling again. And hung up. He tried calling once more then left it..... What a really sh***y job this guy has :D -
