Windows Update Center scam. They claim they are going to fix your computer, but in reality this is an attempt to hack your PC with spyware and spy on you until you use your credit card. The will try to trick you that there is a problem with common windows errors that are normal to all windows computers.

Received a call from indian sounding female on a poor line. I was told that she was from Windows Software centre and that my computer had been infected with spyware. As soon as I asked her "when did this happen?" She put the phone down. Obviously not the most imaginative or quick thinking of scammers as that must have been too difficult to answer! I don't even have a computer! Bring it on Cyber Criminals!

Just had a call from an Indian sounding bloke on this number. I put the phone down. They rung straight back and asked why I put the phone down. I told him we are sick of these type of calls and swore in the hope that they would hang up. He swore back at me! I ripped into him demanding to speak to his supervisor. He then asked me if I was Black Chinese! Eventually we calmed down as he discovered that all the information they had on my number was wrong. Still asking for my name (which he didn't get) he called me Mr X and he then told me they would never ring again. Fingers crossed but I'm not holding my breath. DON'T GIVE ANY INFO OUT! Instead, take out any frustrations on them. I did and enjoyed it!

We observed a call event (a large number of rapidly occurring calls) from this number, and from withheld CLIs on our geographic number ranges. The rate at which the calls were arriving indicated a automated dialler, producing about 100 calls per minute in bursts of 20. After four minutes, they must have given up on our number ranges and moved to others.

Had a call from this number this morning. Woman gave an english name but had a strong indian-sounding accent. Stupidly gave my name and address before I realised that the questions were likely for marketing financial products or even spam, and nothing to do with opinions at all. It's so easy to be fooled by the number seeming to be from within the UK.

Got this 1055 today, she said Technical Dept of Windows. I said No you're not and rang off. Phone Companion tells me Cross Hands, Ammanford. Spoofing is getting a bit cleverer these days - as another poster said, using UK numbers to get around international call blocking. Some even use the respondent's home exchange hoping they'll answer, and in one case the respondent's own number! Be even more vigilant, and if you don't know the number, let it go to voicemail.

A man with strong Indian accent, claiming to be called Thomas, called today and yesterday (yesterday number withheld). He said he was from TalkTalk, he knew my name and address and that I'm a TalkTalk customer (and he read me an account number that he said was mine). He said my broadband was being used by someone not from my address and that they needed to investigate this. He told me to type Ctrl R and in the "run" panel to type %u201Cwww.bit.do/talktalksmpc%u201D upon which a new tab opened in my browser and a file called %u201CShowMyPC3161.exe%u201D offered to download. I believe this is a programme to enable hackers to take control of your computer. He told me to download it. I said "no" and hung up, but he tried it again today.

had a call from this number and after one ring it cut off, then had 3 missed calls from an 'unavailable' number, a few days later I had another call from this number (again only rang for one ring) then it cut off and had an 'unavailable' phone number call me again, this time they were using TalkTalk as their cover saying they were from the technical team and were getting warning signals from my internet line.

It all sounded quite real until they tried directing me to talktalkrefund09.wix.com/home... yes... because talktalk would need to use WIX to host a free site for them... Gave them a lot of abuse down the phone and hung up on them, they then tried ringing back 4-5 times in a row before giving up.

I just got a call on the house phone, Indian sounding man....it was laughably inconsistent - he said he was from talk talk and was he speaking with (my surname), then told me he was going to shut our internet off to 're-boot the system', when I asked why they were doing that he said because of all the unwanted pop ups we keep getting. I said we don't get any. Then he said it was because it was too slow, I told him it wasn't. Then he told me to start typing stuff into the keyboard, I told him then that he was trying to scam me...he said "sir have I even asked for you any personal details or anything..." I said that everything he was telling me to do is on google saying it's a scam and he hung up

Called today from this number and needless to say this was a standard scam call from an Indian man called Nick (that's a lie) claiming to be from BT (another lie) and warning me that my PC was full of viruses etc. (3rd lie and he'd only been on the phone a minute or so!) Strung him along for a few minutes while we looked at the Event Viewer logs on my PC before he passed me onto his (no name) manager. The manager claimed that all of the 'Error' and 'Warning' logs were viruses and spyware which were being installed onto my computer between 02:00-05:00, which would be difficult as my PC is powered down then. He then talked me through accessing the 'Run' command (Windows button R) and wanted me to go to www.teamviewer.com, presumably so that he could gain access to my PC and install various spyware, viruses etc. When I pointed out to him what he was attempting to do and the fact that he didn't work for BT, but that I do, he became very angry and gave me 020 3129 1957 as a call back number (which I've also logged as a scam number) before he hung-up.

Just received a call from Roger to tell me my internet connection will be disconnected tomorrow for 15 days as my router has been hacked from overseas. an Engineer will be calling to install a new router and establish a new internet connection. He wanted the IP address of my current router (I didn't give it) and ask how far away from the computer is the router - I can touch both whilst sitting in my office. He then said OK investigations complete and put the phone down.

Call from Asian accent female saying she was from Sky. That they were sorry for a problem I had and I was due a 200 refund. Then asked for my date of birth. I said sorry but I have not had a problem with Sky how can I have had a problem when I don%u2019t have an account with Sky. She replied but this could be from a few years ago say 1-3 years. I said I haven%u2019t had an account for 30 years with Sky, so I believe your working on behalf of a scammer. She then said sorry to have bothered me have a good day. Unusual as when I mention to these type of calls that if they think there working for a genuine company they need to check them out as they are scammers they usually put the phone down.

We are with TPS, and are ex directory. We have tried phoning back several times, but phone always engaged. When I went to block the number, it showed up as 02105479193, so it must be the same number as 01269849892. We have received a lot of calls over the past few weeks, and no messages have been left.
