  1. DanP88 reported 02032869239 'Microsoft Support Team' with the number 02032869239

    Received a phone call from 'Microsoft Support Team' on 020 3286 9239 regarding a piece of software on my PC that allows Microsoft to monitor windows 8, stressed that I had not consented to this, but was assured it was legal and it was a Microsoft license, and that a senior engineer, by the name of Shane Peterson) would help me resolve the issues and get my PC working again. I had not noticed anything wrong with the PC no lagging of any kind or anything, but the Eventvwr was showing a shocking amount of errors, and I was told it was viruses from the internet attacking my program files but the Antivirus would not be able to detect them, and that they would be able to remove the problems without losing my files. Anyway I moved away from my PC and returned to it a few minutes later, still on the phone to who I believed were Microsoft at the time, to find that the PC was being controlled remotely and Advanced Windows Care v2 was being installed. That set alarm bells off so used the details I had taken down previously and did a google search, I found info on this site regarding these fraudsters. I disconnected the PC from the internet and turned the PC off to stop any more of my info being transmitted to them. They just laughed at me and said 'check your computer' when I confronted them about the online complaints. It was too late, they had encrypted the hard drive so when the computer booted up you couldn't do anything. I asked them for the password and it was either a case if letting them proceed to 'clean-up' the so called errors or pay £50 for the password. I hung up the phone, but the continued to call back, threatening to also block my iPhone if I did not go through with either of their requests. I contacted PC World's KnowHow help desk who got my computer up and running again within a couple of hours, restore to factory settings, yes you will loose everything on the hard drive but you lost it all the minute they took control of your PC!
