I get calls also from this number saying they are with the breast research center. I just hang up, they won't give you a chance to even say not interested. This is a scam. Just hang up on them it's that simple.

I received a call from this number as well.  When I told the caller that I wasn't interested in donating by phone and was mid-sentence in asking her where she got our family's name (she originally asked for my husband), she hung up.  I tried several times to reach someone by calling the number back, but couldn't get a person on the line.  The directory and operator options on the voice mail system were not functioning... I got a fast busy each time I tried to dial zero or an extension.  I am suspicious.

Received a call from this number.  Female asked for 'John.'  I replied that I was sorry, but she had the wrong number.  She responds, "Oh, I have the right number, but the wrong name."  Then she says she's calling from the Breast Awareness Center and before she could say anything else, I told her I wasn't interested and hung up.  Strangest wrong number call I have ever received.

5-5-2015....Also did a call back twice to get the instant message that it belonged to a skype user. First call back the dude was pressing for my name. Provided first name only and asked what the business was. Dude got more agitated and sounded Oriental but possibly Indian in descent. I hung up. Sent a text message back and now got a message 24 hours later calling me a dick-wad and saying something about my dog being in his yard and should he come down to talk to me. It appears by doing a google search for the number that others dating back years have had a similar issue.

This guy, Brian Taylor, called me NONSTOP!! So I finally answered him! He gave me a bunch of numbers like 716-200-499 and 904-222-8310... then fax numbers like 206-203-0067 and 206-337-8793. I was ready to give him $300 on Monday. But last time he said I owed $700, but as a settlement I can pay $300. I kept pushing the date on it because I wasn't sure about this. I asked him for my information all the time, he gave me my address and name, and I asked for what company and he said Cash Net, and then I asked him if he had my social, but he said his system couldn't be refreshed. So I was like, okay. But he called today, because I was going to pay them on Monday, and I asked him again for my Social, and he was like, that's not important and we are a real company!! I've taken out loans before through the internet, but I know I've paid them all. Then he said that they were in charged of all the Internet loan companies. It was weird that his name was Brian Taylor, because he was had an Indian accent, and his name sounded American. But maybe he was adopted. But he threatened me and said that they would take me to court and I would be fined $1000 if I didn't pay them back. So it was serious. I was about to send out a Fax that gave "Brian Taylor" authorization to take money out, until something in my GUT said to do more research. I found this website and another website, (http://whocallsme.com/Phone-Number.aspx/90422 ... qAjMBd7F9w)that stated that this guy was a scam. Thank you LORD for my gut feeling that this was fake!!

I have received at least a half a dozen calls today, same outfit, two different people...on my work phone no less! The first was Jennifer McKenzie and the second was a man whose name I did not get. After I confronted Jennifer, the next three or four calls where from the man. He finally told me this was the Department of Crime Prevention. I'm thankful for this website because I was able to educate myself about these people. They are still calling but I am done with them. The first number on my caller id was 31107108942 which I did not answer and the message included a different number (716) 200-4992. All subsequent calls showed (256)665-9340. Pretty sneaky!

on august 25 2009 I received a phone call from Jason Hunt services claiming they were a fraud prevention investigation service and that I was a prime suspect in money laundering and they even gave me my own case number 006372.They also said they were filing my paper work in court at 11am on the 25 of August. They told me I would be arrested and sent to prision and they had all my personal information along with 2 of my friends phone numbers.They told me if I do not settle this debt by 12pm on the 25 that I will be arested and put in prision and lose everything.They would not tell me excately what company they were calling for but that it was a pay day loan company and that I need to take care of this debt.They also told me that Maryland is a zero tolerance state once they told me that I laughed at them and told them I will take my chances.The reason being Maryland is a zero tolerance state but that only has to do with drinking and driving nothing else.So if anyone receives phone calls from these people or this number just hang up on them they can not do anything it is a scam.Also if you live in Maryland in case you don't know if someone ever says that Maryland is a zero tolerance state that means drinking and driving nothing else.

I have very important updated information about this phone number and business listing. I have called this number several times in the past and always received an answer phase such as " Department of Crimes Pervention " today... I called the number again and this time they answered " Front Desk May I Help You " I told them that I was with the federal government and I needed to speak with there CEO. I was aksed to leave a message and someone will call me back. I was also given the physical address of the business: 101 Kingston Avenue Buffolo, New York 07001 and they also shared with me that they were a Debt Collection Agency. I had to take desprate measures to obtain somekind of information to work with. I will now report this information to the authorities listed in the last comments message. Remember this phone number is a Scam and a Debt Collection Agency trying to be sneaky about its collection efforts. Hopefully we can get them Shut Down! Don't call the number back and just hangup when they call you. Be safe!

http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-901-328-7180Judging from the previous reports about this caller, it's a typical debt collection scam. As the other reports indicate, this caller claims he's with the "Department of Crime Prevention"; there is no such thing.These type of crooks attempt to extort money from their victims with a myriad of false and illegal threats. They alternately pose as debt collectors, federal and state law enforcement officers, lawyers and bankers. And they use any number of phony official-sounding names such as US National Bank, US Legal Investigation Bureau, Hopkins Law Office, Morgan Associates, White Collar Crime Unit, Department of Crime Prevention, etc. They also crooks use caller-id spoofing software and/or VoIP to disguise their real location. And many of them are calling from overseas.One thing to remember is that anytime someone calls you demanding money to prevent your arrest, it is ALWAYS a scam. No debt collector (let alone criminals posing as debt collectors) has the authority to have anyone arrested for anything. (And it's illegal to them to threaten such a thing.) And since these dirtbags routinely impersonate law enforcement, it's also important to remember that American law enforcement officers aren't in the business of debt collection.  What's more, debt is a civil, not a criminal, matter.The bottom line is, these are criminals trying to steal your money. I suggest you do all the following (most of which you can do online):1) The U.S. Secret Service is responsible for protecting the country's financial infrastructure and payment systems from international and domestic threats. Call or write your local Secret Service field office to alert them to the details of this attempted extortion. The addresses and phone numbers for the local Secret Service field offices are listed at http://www.secretservice.gov/field_offices.shtml or in your phone book.2) Alert the FBI at https://tips.fbi.gov  Be sure to tell the FBI that you are being targeted by extortionists over the phone and give them all the details.3) File a complaint with your local police. Most police departments will take a report over the phone.  Be sure to tell them that you're being targeted by an extortionist and give them all the details.4) File a complaint your state's attorney general, the contact information for whom is at www.naag.org5) File a complaint online with The Federal Trade Commission at https://rn.ftc.gov/pls/dod/wsolcq$.startup?Z_ORG_CODE=PU01If these crooks call back, promise them nothing, pay them nothing and tell them nothing other than that you know they're a scam and that you've reported them to law enforcement. (And be sure to report them to all the agencies above each time they call you.)By the way, here's just a few 800Notes links with reports about similar scams. Read the reports and you'll see the same pattern time and again -- phony official-sounding organization names, foreign accents (most of the time), and dramatic false threats of arrest and lawsuits.A consumer posting a complaint about these same scammers at http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-718-831-7157 notes that 718-831-7157 is associated with an India-based "outsourcing" telephone bank.  Though a reverse search on WhitePages.com shows that 718-831-7157 is an unlisted land line in New York City, information on Debtbuyers.Com shows that that number is used by India-based Intellisourze. (Source: http://www.debtbuyers.com/debtbuyers.asp ) My guess is that it's a VoIP phone number.This is another piece of the puzzle that fits in perfectly with other information about this scam. There are some reports on 800Notes that have suggested that the crooks behind this offshore scam are also the crooks behind the notorious Bass/Ellis Crosby & Assoc./States Predisposition scams in Florida and Georgia. The interesting thing is that the number of complaints on here about the US National Bank/US Legal Investigation/Federal Investigation scam skyrocketed *after* April 7, 2008 when Florida obtained a $1.3 million judgment against Ted Ellis Crosby, shutdown his operations and barred him from ever conducting debt collections in Florida (Read http://myfloridalegal.com/newsrel.nsf/newsrel ... 5257424005858A6 ) There's certainly a good chance that the crooks placing these calls from India are doing so on behalf of the American crooks behind the Crosby/Bass/States Predisposition scams.Here's the contact information for the phone bank in India:IntellisOurzE BPO701, Sapphier, Nr.

Update on phone number (716) 200 4992. My uncle who is a sheriff called the number and got the same person with strong accent. When the man was asked what kind of business does he work for.. he failed to say anything but "who are you calling about?" its clear that this company is either a summons carrier or collection agency in buffolo, ny. There employee by the name of Jason Hunt has a very tacky-way of looking up personal information about you (via internet or some other source) and try to use it for a return call from you. He will try to scare you into calling him back. Do not return phone call from these people.... if they call you at home or work report the call to police and tell them these people are unknown to you and are making threats and now stalking which makes you feel unsafe. This will make the call more serious and it will start being tracked by computer and put on public record. We have notified the FBI (west coast branch) and according to them the matter is already being worked on. It sounded kinda serious. So, do not return there calls. If they call you simply hangup... when called back hangup again until they stop. They will say personal things about you... how they get the info is unknown to me. They will be delt with soon. No Worries.

I had recevied a call from someone from this phone number by the name of J. Hunt. He started to tell me that someone I knew was in a legal mess and the person should call him back on this number. It sounded like a debt collector seeking information. We called the number back requesting that the person whom answered the phone tell us about the company. The person would not say anything and asked who are we calling about. I said again can you please tell me what kind of company is this? He refused to give any info. They answered the phone like this... Dept. of Crimes Pervention.. may I help you?? The number is based out of New York. Be careful when calling anyone at this number and never give any of your personal information out to them.

All of you who they are telling they are from England, Germany, India or whatever...that is the first indication of a scam. 661 area code is Bakersfield CA. They are using that number as a turn around in order to hide their real number since that is a skype phone number. All of you that are getting scammed might want to try this...Anytime you get a call from any unknown number do not answer. Instead google the number first and if they are legit= IE no reports filed you can always call them back, preferably from a blocked number. Good Luck all.?

The caller's name is Alex Rozera, or rather that is the name that appears on Caller ID when 661-748-0240 is the originating number.  A second number used is 415-800-4496, which is listed to AvTech, a California-based computer support firm that has operated for about five years, according to their web site.  Although Rozera identified himself as a Microsoft Tech Support employee, I confirmed with Microsoft that neither he nor AvTech have any affiliation with Microsoft.It appears that his game is to call to discuss multiple infections and then sell tech support services to remove them.

FYI this is a SKYPE number. It is shared by hundreds if not thousands of Skype callers. Even though Skype is sometimes used by SCAMMERS, such as the cases listed here, it is certainly possible that someone may call you with this number who is TOTALLY LEGIT.

From what im reading online and in these forums,so many if us are receiving harassing scam calls from generic untraceable Skype numbers, and Skype customer service is being entirely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything about it. This is beyond poor business practice. It is practically harassment being aided by Skype, and i think we need to send Skype a message about their lack of concern for this. If you are getting calls on a regular basis or at all hours of the day and night from numbers like 661-748-0240  then you know what im talking about. Do not call lists do not work. I suggest either filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and/or discontinuing using Skype and using another similar service. If the BBB receives enough complaints they will take action, and there are many alternative services just like Skype who will take your complaints seriously. On top of all this, Microsoft purchased Skype and has implemented the ability to LISTEN IN ON YOUR SKYPE CALLS. There are several articles on Forbes.com about this. Here is a link to one of them: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericjackson/2012/ ... my-skype-calls/You can just google microsoft listening in on skype to find msny similar stories. That alone should make you want to change services. Here is one link that gives you seversl alternatives to Skype:http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/skype-ju ... p-services/2488Skype should be ashamed, embarassed, and face consequences for their poor handling of this. Sure it may be a small hassle to file a BBB complaint or change services, but not as much of one as receiving constant harrassing scam calls and having your calls snooped on! Dont just lie down and let them get away with this. Let your friends and contacts know as well.

It's listed on Wikipedia and you can check for yourself -- how much "research" did you actually do on this? My guess is they installed a FAKE antivirus program and told you it was SuperAntiSpyware. This company calling you is definitely a scammer, but SuperAntiSpyware is NOT a scam.What does "shooting the energy over the phone" even mean, anyway?

An India-based company named DNF Global Solutions.Obviously, this is a well-connected establishment who are "harassing" and scamming people. Read my story and I did file a report. I was locked out of my Hotmail account and I was in this continuous loop. I searched the Internet and came across this company who provided tech support for Hotmail. I contacted them and I was told by this “tech” named Nick Nelson that 227 emails were sent from my computer requesting people’s financial data. I entered a contract with them for 3 years that they would provide all of the tech support for my computer. I later found out that companies like DNF Global Solutions are ripping people off. The name of this company is DNF Global Solutions who are located in India. The “tech” installed this Super AntiSpyware virus, which made my computer slower and infected my computer with viruses; my files were being deleted, uploaded and files were hidden. After I did my research, I learned that was a rogue virus to annoy me and to infect my computer, which it did. The scary part is that they were able to unblock my Hotmail account. I changed all of my passwords. While, I was speaking to them, someone gained access to my online banking account. They became the Administrative of the computer and I have not been able to repair it. I was told to call 866-921-5154 for tech support. They were calling me various phone numbers from 661-748-0244, 661-748-0240, 661-748-0242, 661-380-3000, 661-748-0245, but when I called the numbers back, it did not go through. I thought that was odd. After they failed to answer my questions, I decided to terminate the relationship. I spoke to a manager named Sonya who was shooting the “energy” over the phone. There is no DNF Global Solutions with Mike Hughes as the President. 866-921-5154 is the Toll-free number to an all-inclusive exotic vacation; http://allinclusive-adult-vacations.com/desinaion.htm, as well as, to an India phone number. The phone numbers that the “technicians” were calling from apparently were fraudulent because many people were complaining about how they were unethical telemarketers. My computer has not crashed so the forensics can be obtained off it to get their IP Address so that their illegal activities can be stopped.

This is NOT Microsoft. We got the same phone call and same number. We called Microsoft about it, and they assured us it's a scam. We gave them the name and and phone number that he called from. That number was 231-629-4824. This guy also had a heavy Indian accent. We told him to call back in half hour. The lady from Microsoft gave us a direct number where we could reach her at, cause she wanted to know if he called back or not. NO information was given to him whatsoever. NOW, the strange part, as I'm reading all these responses, is he DID call back half hour later, BUT the phone number showed Skype user 661-748-0240. So we called the Microsoft lady back, and she said evidently the 2 are connected together in some way. She thanked me and said they will investigate this. Oh yes, check this one out also: we couldn't hardly understand him cause of his accent, and we wanted his name. So he said each letter one by one like A as in apple. That way.

"Do you realize that her reversed charges end up costing us money in the aggregate?" is only true if the card companies cannot claw money back from the scammer. Clawback is probable in this case IMO because the scam appears to be ongoing. EVERYTHING the credit card companies and the banks do costs us money in the aggregate. That's how all financial companies handle $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever -- as a cost of doing business. They simply raise interest rates to raise the $amount needed to cover $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever.

You're right- we do need to take responsibility for our own idiocy.  That being so, I encourage you, and others who have commented on the stupidity of those who fell for the scams (and are kindly warning others of them), to consider your own shortcomings.It's not smart to fall for the scams, and I have not, but I daresay it's also not terribly smart to take out loans at a rate of about 22% interest on each one.  I've done that and so have you.  Every person in our "smart" population, who uses a credit card, agrees to that less than smart deal- over and over and OVER again . . .  Each and every transaction on your CREDIT card is a LOAN taken at a SUPER EXORBITANT rate. How smart is that??The banks take from us as much as they can, within the confines of existing law.  Given the rates we pay, I think they can be expected to do a bit more for us than distributing our loan dollars and keeping track of what we owe them.

Hi Joni,You can get your money back by reporting this incident as fraud to your credit card company. Your credit card company should be able to reimburse you for the charge, they will then do a fee reversal on the business that charged the credit card. However, it may be difficult if the "business" has closed their account with whatever credit card company you charged the fee on. This usually does not work for debit cards.

First let me tell you that you should NEVER Give ANY Personal information to someone calling you. 99% of the time it is a scam. If they tell you they are from a big company ask for the toll free number so you can be sure it really is the company, if they give you a phone number Search the number on Google or Bing or whatever search engine you use. You will probably find that the number is a scam line (like this Skype number is. Then call the ACTUAL number for the Company and report the number that called you along with the toll free number they provided to you.Now the important part: GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK!!Get the Credit Card you used to pay the $199. Call the Customer Service # on the back. Listen to the Options  the Automated Prompts for something like:  'Report Fraudulent Charges'  'Dispute a Transaction'Or just plain ole' Customer Service. Once you have a person from your Credit Card Company on the phone tell them that you have been the victim of a Scam, explain how the person called you claiming to be an Employee of Microsoft (Don't say McHelp cause that sounds like McDonalds went into the Help Desk Business and not even remotely like a real company) telling you that your computer was being hacked. Give them any information you have on the Fake Company including phone numbers and emails/email addresses, websites. Tell them that they gained access to your computer remotely and may have all of your personal and financial information.I am assuming that you fell for the same scam that the others are describing.They will probably transfer you to the Fraud Department and they should close the current credit card and issue you a new card with a new number since crooks have your Credit Card Number. MAKE SURE that the info gets forwarded to the Fraud Dept even if they don't transfer you to them, and make sure you tell them you want the charges reversed.If you let the scam artists access your computer you should change the passwords to any important accounts, security codes too. If you do online Banking call your Bank and explain everything to them so they can change your account numbers & issue you new Credit/Debit Card(s). Call ALL Other Credit/Debit Cards that you have used on your computer and get new cards issued from them too.***VERY IMPORTANT*** Make Sure when Contacting ALL the Financial Institutions that you knowingly gave your information or have the information stored on your Computer for.....MAKE SURE THAT There are NO Other Unauthorized Charges!!!

My husband just to a call on his cell phone from this number 661-748-0240.  They said they were calling from Microsoft and that his computer was infected with multiple trojan horses and he needed to pay for their help to remove them.  They said that his computer had come to their attention because it was sending messages to the Microsoft office.  They had him go to a website: microsoftsupportusa.com/tb-pc.html to prove they were who they said and wanted to have him allow them to view his machine through a connection.  They sounded pretty legit they even walked him through looking at some files on his computer that they said were the program files for the trojans.  But the phone connection was very bad and the women on the other end didn't speak good English - WARNING!

Skype What it is the person that is calling you is on a computer through Skype services.Three dollars a month I get unlimited PC to landlines or cell. the reason why you can not call this number back is because the person call you have not pay the extra fee to have people call them back from landlines or cell to PC Skype user. If you can not here the person clears is most likely is their mic is junk.I just got this service today and do not know about the scammers using this service or if this service is a scam.

They are a scam!  I just got a phone call on my cell phone from 661-748-0240,  really heavy accent Indian very hard to understand.  He tried to tell me that he was from Microsoft and that I had a virus installed on my computer and it needs to be removed.  He said they sent me an email and I never replied.  I asked him what is the purpose of this phone call?  He said it was just to let me know.  Well I think he just told me that because I wasn't very nice,  I have heard and read about all the scams the Nigerians, Indians out of the country scams that they try and succeed at stealing from innocent people.  I don't have a computer, only at work, and he was trying to give me an ip address.  If i had a computer I wouldn't know if it was my ip address, who memorizes those numbers?  any ways I googled the number after we hung up and sure enough he has taken money from innocent people.  Please don't fall for scammers and never ever give credit card numbers or checking account numbers to anyone on the phone.....

All of you who they are telling they are from England, Germany, India or whatever...that is the first indication of a scam. 661 area code is Bakersfield CA. They are using that number as a turn around in order to hide their real number since that is a skype phone number.

The caller's name is Alex Rozera, or rather that is the name that appears on Caller ID when 661-748-0240 is the originating number.  A second number used is 415-800-4496, which is listed to AvTech, a California-based computer support firm that has operated for about five years, according to their web site.  Although Rozera identified himself as a Microsoft Tech Support employee, I confirmed with Microsoft that neither he nor AvTech have any affiliation with Microsoft.It appears that his game is to call to discuss multiple infections and then sell tech support services to remove them.

FYI this is a SKYPE number. It is shared by hundreds if not thousands of Skype callers.

From what im reading online and in these forums,so many if us are receiving harassing scam calls from generic untraceable Skype numbers, and Skype customer service is being entirely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything about it. This is beyond poor business practice. It is practically harassment being aided by Skype, and i think we need to send Skype a message about their lack of concern for this. If you are getting calls on a regular basis or at all hours of the day and night from numbers like 661-748-0240  then you know what im talking about. Do not call lists do not work. I suggest either filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and/or discontinuing using Skype and using another similar service. If the BBB receives enough complaints they will take action, and there are many alternative services just like Skype who will take your complaints seriously. On top of all this, Microsoft purchased Skype and has implemented the ability to LISTEN IN ON YOUR SKYPE CALLS. There are several articles on Forbes.com about this. Here is a link to one of them: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericjackson/2012/ ... my-skype-calls/You can just google microsoft listening in on skype to find msny similar stories. That alone should make you want to change services. Here is one link that gives you seversl alternatives to Skype:http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/skype-ju ... p-services/2488Skype should be ashamed, embarassed, and face consequences for their poor handling of this. Sure it may be a small hassle to file a BBB complaint or change services, but not as much of one as receiving constant harrassing scam calls and having your calls snooped on! Dont just lie down and let them get away with this. Let your friends and contacts know as well.

You have to have a paid skype account to call landline phones and cell phones. It would not be a random number.  It is only free calling skype to skype and there is no phone number involved there.

This is a Skype number.  Meaning someone is calling your phone from their Skype account, and it the call is routed through this particular number. The number is not owned by any single user but is randomly assigned from a bank of numbers Skype has.  From minute to minute this number might be used by a trusted friend calling you on Skype, or a spammer who is using Skype.  There's no telling.

I got the same call from this woman who claimed to be Veronica the assistant to Chris and that she would call me back @ another time.  Don't know anyone by the name of Chris and these are people who are just trying to get something from you.  Definitely a scam and I would not call back if I were you.  I put her number as a "DO NOT ANSWER" on my cell phone.  If it were important they would leave a message as to why they are calling.

If you could give me a call back at this number, that would be great. We'll get your 'baby mama drama,' as they're calling it on the street these days, resolved.

I'm not sure what you're talking about with SuperAntiSpyware -- it's not a "rogue virus," it's a legitimate program to detect and remove malware and tracking cookies and such. It's listed on Wikipedia and you can check for yourself -- how much "research" did you actually do on this? My guess is they installed a FAKE antivirus program and told you it was SuperAntiSpyware.

An India-based company named DNF Global Solutions.Obviously, this is a well-connected establishment who are "harassing" and scamming people. Read my story and I did file a report. I was locked out of my Hotmail account and I was in this continuous loop. I searched the Internet and came across this company who provided tech support for Hotmail. I contacted them and I was told by this “tech” named Nick Nelson that 227 emails were sent from my computer requesting people’s financial data. I entered a contract with them for 3 years that they would provide all of the tech support for my computer. I later found out that companies like DNF Global Solutions are ripping people off. The name of this company is DNF Global Solutions who are located in India. The “tech” installed this Super AntiSpyware virus, which made my computer slower and infected my computer with viruses; my files were being deleted, uploaded and files were hidden. After I did my research, I learned that was a rogue virus to annoy me and to infect my computer, which it did. The scary part is that they were able to unblock my Hotmail account. I changed all of my passwords. While, I was speaking to them, someone gained access to my online banking account. They became the Administrative of the computer and I have not been able to repair it. I was told to call 866-921-5154 for tech support. They were calling me various phone numbers from 661-748-0244, 661-748-0240, 661-748-0242, 661-380-3000, 661-748-0245, but when I called the numbers back, it did not go through. I thought that was odd. After they failed to answer my questions, I decided to terminate the relationship. I spoke to a manager named Sonya who was shooting the “energy” over the phone. There is no DNF Global Solutions with Mike Hughes as the President. 866-921-5154 is the Toll-free number to an all-inclusive exotic vacation; http://allinclusive-adult-vacations.com/desinaion.htm, as well as, to an India phone number. The phone numbers that the “technicians” were calling from apparently were fraudulent because many people were complaining about how they were unethical telemarketers. My computer has not crashed so the forensics can be obtained off it to get their IP Address so that their illegal activities can be stopped.

This is NOT Microsoft. We got the same phone call and same number. We called Microsoft about it, and they assured us it's a scam. We gave them the name and and phone number that he called from. That number was 231-629-4824. This guy also had a heavy Indian accent. We told him to call back in half hour. The lady from Microsoft gave us a direct number where we could reach her at, cause she wanted to know if he called back or not. NO information was given to him whatsoever. NOW, the strange part, as I'm reading all these responses, is he DID call back half hour later, BUT the phone number showed Skype user 661-748-0240. So we called the Microsoft lady back, and she said evidently the 2 are connected together in some way. She thanked me and said they will investigate this. Oh yes, check this one out also: we couldn't hardly understand him cause of his accent, and we wanted his name. So he said each letter one by one like A as in apple. That way.

"Do you realize that her reversed charges end up costing us money in the aggregate?" is only true if the card companies cannot claw money back from the scammer. Clawback is probable in this case IMO because the scam appears to be ongoing. EVERYTHING the credit card companies and the banks do costs us money in the aggregate. That's how all financial companies handle $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever -- as a cost of doing business. They simply raise interest rates to raise the $amount needed to cover $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever.

You're right- we do need to take responsibility for our own idiocy.  That being so, I encourage you, and others who have commented on the stupidity of those who fell for the scams (and are kindly warning others of them), to consider your own shortcomings.It's not smart to fall for the scams, and I have not, but I daresay it's also not terribly smart to take out loans at a rate of about 22% interest on each one.  I've done that and so have you.  Every person in our "smart" population, who uses a credit card, agrees to that less than smart deal- over and over and OVER again . . .  Each and every transaction on your CREDIT card is a LOAN taken at a SUPER EXORBITANT rate. How smart is that??The banks take from us as much as they can, within the confines of existing law.  Given the rates we pay, I think they can be expected to do a bit more for us than distributing our loan dollars and keeping track of what we owe them.

Hi Joni,You can get your money back by reporting this incident as fraud to your credit card company. Your credit card company should be able to reimburse you for the charge, they will then do a fee reversal on the business that charged the credit card. However, it may be difficult if the "business" has closed their account with whatever credit card company you charged the fee on. This usually does not work for debit cards.

First let me tell you that you should NEVER Give ANY Personal information to someone calling you. 99% of the time it is a scam. If they tell you they are from a big company ask for the toll free number so you can be sure it really is the company, if they give you a phone number Search the number on Google or Bing or whatever search engine you use. You will probably find that the number is a scam line (like this Skype number is. Then call the ACTUAL number for the Company and report the number that called you along with the toll free number they provided to you.Now the important part: GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK!!Get the Credit Card you used to pay the $199. Call the Customer Service # on the back. Listen to the Options  the Automated Prompts for something like:  'Report Fraudulent Charges'  'Dispute a Transaction'Or just plain ole' Customer Service. Once you have a person from your Credit Card Company on the phone tell them that you have been the victim of a Scam, explain how the person called you claiming to be an Employee of Microsoft (Don't say McHelp cause that sounds like McDonalds went into the Help Desk Business and not even remotely like a real company) telling you that your computer was being hacked. Give them any information you have on the Fake Company including phone numbers and emails/email addresses, websites. Tell them that they gained access to your computer remotely and may have all of your personal and financial information.I am assuming that you fell for the same scam that the others are describing.They will probably transfer you to the Fraud Department and they should close the current credit card and issue you a new card with a new number since crooks have your Credit Card Number. MAKE SURE that the info gets forwarded to the Fraud Dept even if they don't transfer you to them, and make sure you tell them you want the charges reversed.If you let the scam artists access your computer you should change the passwords to any important accounts, security codes too. If you do online Banking call your Bank and explain everything to them so they can change your account numbers & issue you new Credit/Debit Card(s). Call ALL Other Credit/Debit Cards that you have used on your computer and get new cards issued from them too.***VERY IMPORTANT*** Make Sure when Contacting ALL the Financial Institutions that you knowingly gave your information or have the information stored on your Computer for.....MAKE SURE THAT There are NO Other Unauthorized Charges!!!

I refused as I felt that url may give him access to my computer and that HE may be the scammer. The url ended in ......./index.php. He identified his email as mike.j482@gmail.com, which is no doubt fake.Anyway, seems he is a putrescent pile of scumbag vomit.

You're an IDIOT!  Why do people like to speak on subjects they know nothing about? Either stupid or lazy I guess.The FTC is not supplying free calling lists to commercial telemarketers. FYI: Companies are required by law to pay a stiff fee in order to access the DNC list, there is no choice in the matter. Additionally the fines are quite stiff for Co's who get caught violating the list either by mistake or intentionally.Of course there are plenty of stealth companies out there that dial away as they wish.

The Do Not Call List has become the problem, not the solution. They make the lists available free of charge to telemarketers so they know who not to call. In fact, the FTC is providing telemarketers a list of good, live telephone numbers that they would otherwise have to pay for.

That program is so out dated, (no longer funded) they can not even come close to keeping up the demand of reports.

My husband just to a call on his cell phone from this number 661-748-0240.  They said they were calling from Microsoft and that his computer was infected with multiple trojan horses and he needed to pay for their help to remove them.  They said that his computer had come to their attention because it was sending messages to the Microsoft office.  They had him go to a website: microsoftsupportusa.com/tb-pc.html to prove they were who they said and wanted to have him allow them to view his machine through a connection.  They sounded pretty legit they even walked him through looking at some files on his computer that they said were the program files for the trojans.  But the phone connection was very bad and the women on the other end didn't speak good English - WARNING!

Hi Ladies,YES; these types of E-Mails are ALWAYS a scam; PLEASE don't fall into the trap--it will hurt your business!  I have been selling Avon (in New York) for many years & have come across these things before (never fell for them though).  A word of advice:  read carefully!  You will notice that the "client" never knows how to spell nor do they know correct English.  In the case with Nicole Houghton there were MANY references which raised red flags:1)  "Good to hear back from you. I'm the manager of  Houghton's sister modeling agency incorporation and photo studio ."  If this were real one would say "I am the manager of "Elle's" (Houghton's sister agency) & leave it at that.2)  "We will be coming down to your city by early April for a photo shot."  If real the person would know correct English.3)  "I would need you to get the below listed avon products for me."  If real the person would know that Avon is a nationally known company & not just a word.4)  "The quantity needed for each of the products is at the front of the item number of each "product number" and one for all the remaining items except the one in FRAGRANCE category that I need in four."  This doesn't even make sense!5)  "Get back to me with the total cost with the "sale's tax" inclusive  that I will pay for the products."  The words are sales tax, no comma.6)  A real person would not need YOUR information, would not have a sponsor to pick up the items, would not need to "continue with the order" & would never say "We would be in your city soon for a photo shoot so our crew would pick up the items themselves or meet you at a strategic point depending on your choice and preference but I only want you to have the funds in advance  so you can get the ordered product ready and secured."7)  If there really were a "sister" modeling agency there would be a name.8)  If it comes through your website the "customer" will never enter any of their information (just name & E-Mail address).I'm sure you are all aware of these things, I just hate to see anything happen.  If anyone has any questions, please send me an E-Mail (though my site); www.youravon.com/christenmann & I will get back to you.  I created a few E-Mails myself to deter scammers & have found that it works; if you are interested I'll send them to you.  All you have to do is keep kicking the E-Mails back to the scammer & eventually they will tire of the tennis match & give up!  TRUST ME & GOOD LUCK!

I also received this e-mail today ladies from Deborah Drake . She or ( whoever claims that she will be in my city in late February). A red flag went up to me immediately when the e-mail stated that she is paying by money order and required all of personal information to place her order. Now after coming here I know for sure this is a scam. Thank you ladies for starting this blog !!!

I sell Avon in Ohio and received the same email and request from Deborah Drake at Mitchell Models International today.  As soon as I read it, I new something wasn't legit.  Always be cautious when a stranger reqests your home address and phone!!  I suggested she order directly through the Avon website, also.

I too am a rep in Ohio who gets requests like these all the time.  The idiots don't even read the response I send them when I get the "I want to order avon" email from Avon.  I say in the email that it may take me a few days to answer emails because I work full time at the MERCER COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE.  The last lady I "played" with wanted my address to send the check to.  I gave her my work address & I was sent a poorly photo shopped Chase Bank check for $1,950.00 for a $195.00 order.  It was sent Fed Ex which you can't trace because it can be dropped in a box anywhere.  The person knew the check had been delivered & gave me instructions on what to do next but never pushed the issue when I didn't follow through on my end.  All they do is change their name, email address & reason for needing the products.  I just tell them that if they aren't local, they must buy from my website.

Jan. 15 I was also hit up by Mitchell Models International wanting to place an order by a lady named Deborah. I am an Avon rep in Ohio and she said she was in CA.

Yeah, I also received the same type of email.  I sell Avon in the Virginia area.  Also there is a Linda Clerk playing a deaf mute sending like emails....BIG MONEY orders too!  This really stinks, I am asking AVON to check into better security measures pretaining to our web site information.  Be very careful ladies, people are nuts!!  I just pray that GOD will protect us from these lazy, thieving idiots!!  Stay safe & good luck building your business with the whacko's out here!!

I sell Avon in Norfolk, VA and I just received the same email this morning. I am glad I checked into it more. Beware there is also one going around from Angela Anderson wanting 4 purses, she went as far as to mail a check to my address which of course was fake and I had to turn it over to the bank. Good thing I never ordered the purses.

I just got the same EXACT SAME email.  I am a rep in San Antonio, TX.  It contained a number that did not work.  What I want to know is, what is in it for them?  It's not like they actually get the products for free.  Are they hoping to get numbers and addresses for junk mail and telemarketers?  I could tell right away it was a scam.

Mine was the exact same letter, orders, wording, everything.  Never in my life did I think this would happen through Avon.  No one warned me about this, I had to find out the hard way, after I got scammed, looking for a number for Mitchell Modeling to complain and I find all of these people who knew better and have reported it.

I got an email from her today because I too sell avon in North Carolina. This is the second email I have received from scammers.
