He called trying to collect money saying I over withdrew my bank account that I don’t have. Also said his business name is Microsoft and I said why would Microsoft inform me about an overdrawn bank account I don’t have. I called him a [censored] and hung up, then he continually called me back telling me he XXXX my brother, my mother, my sister, and my dog and all my family members. Then I said I’m reporting your [censored] you XXXX scammer. The man is Indian you can barely understand anything he is saying. I have a witness as well, she heard the conversation.

Pop up on computer locked me up, message said to call (844)858-5741. It seemed fishy so I checked number first on google and found not a Microsoft number like they claimed. I call to mess with them. Heavy Indian accent and huge delay on phone(overseas call). Claimed he was with Microsoft in Washington but could not provide me with another number that would check out. I told him thank you and hung up. He had the nerve to call me back .

Sorry, I hate scammers.

I was surfing the internet and an alarming message popped up saying (recording) that my computer has a virus and prompted me to call the Microsoft # 8333005666. When I called it, I gave the "technician" access to "fix" my computer remotely. After several minutes, the gentleman told me that it would cost 499.00 to "repair " my NEW laptop. I told him that I didn’t have the money and hung with him.
