Scam

  • Monetary Loss: $250.00
I have been scammed by these people to the point I had to replace my hard drive and files. They keep calling saying that caused me lots of time and money. They called me 3 times today and said that Micro Soft told them to return my money but to do so thaey would have to connect to my computer. Since they screwed up previously I refused to do so.

Since they are using microsofts name and claiming to be Microsoft I feel that should be punishes as the number of people they scammed may be in thousands

  • Monetary Loss: $299.99
At first it was a recording letting me know they were charging my account $299. I got the return number from caller ID. So I *67 and returned the call. He said he was John from Microsoft. I hung up and call them back about 15 times and then a recording came on and said a non-working number. I wait about 5 minutes and call again and they start answering again. Please look into this. We are tired of the scams that call all the time.

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I have been receiving calls from this number: they state they are from Microsoft and wish to give me a refund of over 200.00. They are persistent, as I have received several calls from them over the last month. I tell them I think they are a fraud and do not call me, then I hang up. The same person I just hung up on calls me from a 2nd number over and over again. I finally stop answering my home phone.
