And you would be correct Linda.   The amounts vary depending on the scammer,  but the methods are the same.  They will tell you that you must pay something up front to get the grant.

I got a call from this number this morning and it was an automated call saying my debit/credit card had been suspended due to a third parties usage and to press 1 to be connected with a representative.  I'm certain they would have been asking for all my personal data and I didn't recognize the number so I hung up on them and reported them to MAX FCU who said they would NEVER have an automated service calling me informing me of a problem and that it would have been a LIVE PERSON.  Please be careful when accepting calls like this because they sound legit and if you were to press 1 to connect to them and then enter or give any of your personal information to them in order to "verify your identity" - well, the crooks now have all they need to wipe out your account(s).REMEMBER!  IF YOU DIDN'T INITIATE THE CALL, NEVER GIVE ANY INFORMATION TO ANYONE.  If they are legit, you can hang up and call the number you are familiar with or look it up in the phone book and call their local number and provide them with your info and you should be safe but don't even take the number they might provide you because anyone can "say" they are someone when they aren't.

Possibly the former collections agencies stopped calling because they have *finally* realized that the statutes of limitations for collecting those old debts were exceeded a few months ago?

Unfortunately there's little you can do except opt into the call blocking service from your phone provider. My phone provider allows for personal and community blacklists so few of these calls actually get thru to me. Ironically, my own telephone number is now on the list because I had someone call me spoofing my own number guessing it was an attempt to get into my voicemail, which often uses the caller ID to confirm the call is coming from you. Also, smaller VoIP providers are usually WAY ahead of the traditional POTS providers that want to nickel and dime you for features from last century.The problems are many but the big ones are: 1) loopholes in the DNC law that allows non-profits, political organizations and surveyors to call. The law is also ineffective in it's watered down state. 2) Caller ID spoofing is a serious issue and this is how these guys are getting away with it. I know of no legislation that strictly prohibits the use of caller ID spoofing (doesn't mean it's not out there, I just don't know about it). Big lobbyists for the collection agency, telemarketing and others won't allow this. The Telco's can enforce a no-spoofing fence but are unwilling to do so because they make so much money from those same groups. Bottom line is laws need to change to make this kind of thing illegal and enforce the telco's to comply and filter out spoofing. The sad sad reality is with all the money in DC and the Citizens United case, we're kinda borked.

They were using the Windows scam when they called me. My husband is a Signal Officer with the US Army and I asked them to call back to speak with him regarding the computer the first time. These people have very strong middle eastern accents (sounds Indian to me). I spoke with the same man 3 times and a woman once. They sounded like they were in a very noisy room full of people. They could not tell me which computer was "supposedly sending them errors" which they ABSOLUTELY would have if they were receiving error reports. When I began questioning them about the computer and informed them that my husband runs communications for his battalion in the military I was promptly hung up on with the second call and third call. This final call began with the woman (did they think i would tell her because she wasnt a man???) After telling her not to call back and that I was reporting this number to everyone she handed him the phone. He proceeded to scream and curse at me!!!!!!!!

This number called me at 10pm, the phone rang after I picked it up, some lady with an accent came on. She stated that my computer had malicious viruses and it was imperative that I follow her instructions. She then prompted me to tell her what buttons were next to my ctrl button only to discover that I had Windows... she then stated that she was with Xp and Vista 7 and she was here to help. I was to press control and r; in the "open" prompt I was to type in eventvwr and press enter. When I then refused and told her that I was not comfortable. I don't know her company "BC Personal Help" she tried to appease me by giving me bogus extension, and customer care number and a big spiel about her company's reputation. I told her I would call her back and she hung up. Not only did she not have an area code based in where she said she was frustrated that I would not comply. Her name is Nancy Brown, extension 101.... I am angry that she had my name. Be weary about this scam and always take info from them, look into the company and never give out personal information. If it is "imperative" get someone to check out your computer that is from a reputable company. Also, if it sounds "fishy" then it's probably "phishy."

Unfortunately there's little you can do except opt into the call blocking service from your phone provider. My phone provider allows for personal and community blacklists so few of these calls actually get thru to me. Ironically, my own telephone number is now on the list because I had someone call me spoofing my own number guessing it was an attempt to get into my voicemail, which often uses the caller ID to confirm the call is coming from you. Also, smaller VoIP providers are usually WAY ahead of the traditional POTS providers that want to nickel and dime you for features from last century.The problems are many but the big ones are: 1) loopholes in the DNC law that allows non-profits, political organizations and surveyors to call. The law is also ineffective in it's watered down state. 2) Caller ID spoofing is a serious issue and this is how these guys are getting away with it. I know of no legislation that strictly prohibits the use of caller ID spoofing (doesn't mean it's not out there, I just don't know about it). Big lobbyists for the collection agency, telemarketing and others won't allow this. The Telco's can enforce a no-spoofing fence but are unwilling to do so because they make so much money from those same groups. Bottom line is laws need to change to make this kind of thing illegal and enforce the telco's to comply and filter out spoofing. The sad sad reality is with all the money in DC and the Citizens United case, we're kinda borked.

I received several calls from this number. Was hung up on three times and cursed at after telling them I was reporting them to the police department, Microsoft, and posting on my facebook as well as every site I could find regarding this issue. They were using the Windows scam when they called me. My husband is a Signal Officer with the US Army and I asked them to call back to speak with him regarding the computer the first time. These people have very strong middle eastern accents (sounds Indian to me). I spoke with the same man 3 times and a woman once. They sounded like they were in a very noisy room full of people. They could not tell me which computer was "supposedly sending them errors" which they ABSOLUTELY would have if they were receiving error reports. When I began questioning them about the computer and informed them that my husband runs communications for his battalion in the military I was promptly hung up on with the second call and third call. This final call began with the woman (did they think i would tell her because she wasnt a man???) After telling her not to call back and that I was reporting this number to everyone she handed him the phone. He proceeded to scream and curse at me!!!!!!!!

Do not answer the phone when it is from this number. That just verifies that the number is in service. You are under no obligation to answer your phone when it rings.

Posted by UPSET:"This number just called me about furthering my education, when I told them not to call me anymore the SOB started cursing and said he would call back anytime he wanted. I hung up and called me back several times.  I have registered on the DoNotCall list, but it is still happening.  Can someone tell me what to do?"Block incoming calls from that number. For my phone company, you use *78 for that, but you might want to check with your phone company first.I think the DoNotCall Registry is mostly useless. There are so many companies that are not required to comply with it, and the ones that are required simply don't! It's like getting a restraining order against a stalker. A piece of paper isn't going to stop a psycho with a butcher knife, and a DoNotCall list isn't going to stop unscrupulous phishing scammers.Just block the call.

Even if you don't answer, it will still calling you.  You can ask your phone company to block the number or put a tracer (what I did) and it won't call again.  They called me twice a day for 2 weeks.  I did the tracer thing at the beggining of this week and since then, no calls!  Good luck!

This number called me at 10pm, the phone rang after I picked it up, some lady with an accent came on. She stated that my computer had malicious viruses and it was imperative that I follow her instructions. She then prompted me to tell her what buttons were next to my ctrl button only to discover that I had Windows... she then stated that she was with Xp and Vista 7 and she was here to help. I was to press control and r; in the "open" prompt I was to type in eventvwr and press enter. When I then refused and told her that I was not comfortable. I don't know her company "BC Personal Help" she tried to appease me by giving me bogus extension, and customer care number and a big spiel about her company's reputation. I told her I would call her back and she hung up. Not only did she not have an area code based in where she said she was frustrated that I would not comply. Her name is Nancy Brown, extension 101.... I am angry that she had my name. Be weary about this scam and always take info from them, look into the company and never give out personal information. If it is "imperative" get someone to check out your computer that is from a reputable company. Also, if it sounds "fishy" then it's probably "phishy."

Re: McAfee.  I "think" that maybe it is the other way around.  These calls started after I purchased a Windows update for a used laptop from Microsoft. It is a computer that I bought only to be used as a standby for my regular laptop and I have hardly used it but one time I got the call from one of them and played along long enough to ask them for info about the computer and they described the system of this computer perfectly.  I still use xp on my main comp and installed the full version of 7 on the one I picked up and on the phone that was the one they described as having "bad things" on my computer.

It hardly matters whether or not this is legal. There are numbers being used for various scams and this appears to be one of them.  When enough people have complained about this number, they will disconnect it and get another one. I don't answer calls from people I don't know.  If it is important, they will leave a message.

Amen, brother!  Just goes to show how gullible perople are. People: do NOT assume the number showing on caller ID is a real number and assum the person whose address goes with the number has a damn thing to do with the call or callers (s).  Do people really think scammers are going to have their correct phone numbers show up on caller ID?!?  Seriously?If you have the ability to screen calls to some degree, do not answer calls from an area code you don't recognize, don't answer calls from numbers you don't recognize. Answering & being peeved when no one is there is just stupid (by answering your phone & saying 'hello' you just confirmed your number is indeed a good one with a human answering AND you confirmed a good time to call as far as the spammer is concerned) . Don't answer calls where no number shows, or a bogus number shows or if caller ID shows 'UNAVAILABLE' because that means the caller is blocking his caller ID information.Just don't answer. If the call is important or from a legityimate person or business a message will be left.

Yes, "Disturbed" the people making calls have been described as Middle Eastern, Indian, African in noisy call center environments.  You think the calls are actually coming out of some guys house in Auburn?  You should first look up what spoofing is and then second stop giving out some mis-information about some innocent guy.  You never know what a fellow moron might do if they think that house is the originating call location.

I got a similar call from the same number but ask about my house payment and that I was going to receive a reduction in my payment.  Knowing he was full of it, I went along.  He ask how much I paid a month.  I told him and he hung up on me.  Not sure what he was trying to do but a bit disturbing to me.  He said he was calling from Los Angeles CA but after some very easy searching, I found he using a land line at a home worth about 219K in the state of Washington (Auburn)  He better watch out as I now know where he lives, which is just outside of I-5. I did attempt to call the number back and it said it would take up to 60 minutes to do something and then it asked me to press 1 for the conference center and 2 to see what was available.  I did type in a number which took me to a music hold which I did not hold on long enough to even connect or be charged for.
