  1. Gez reported Windows Technical and Maintenance Centre with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Asian chap called again, must be at least 5 times in the last week. I thought, he must be really concerned about my windows, so for once, purely for entertainment reasons, i took the call. The usual are you the owner of the computer etc etc. I spent the next 5 minutes talking to him about my double glazed windows and telling him he should buy some when he finally gave up and started calling me all sorts and put the phone down. He called again immediately and i let it go to voicemail. Sat and listened to the noise of a call center in the background before he hung up again. Oh such fun, looking forward to my next call now :)

    Called four times yesterday. Each time it ran into my call blocker, which keeps a log. Each time hung up in about 10 seconds (a giveaway its a computer - if its about 35 seconds its a person).
    n.b. before I obtained this thing I used to try and convert them to an imaginary ten percent religion. They hung up quite quick!
  2. TheDogsMum reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Called at 0815. Have previously had calls from this number re PC problems.

  3. washingtonMan reported number 02088523462 as Microsoft!!

    Took call from indian lady wanting to access my computer because her server was getting messages. He english accent was very difficult to understand especially as she spoke fast. I asked politely for her to slow down the question and speak a little clearer as i could not understand and she just started shouting at me an called be a F***k**g B*****D. sound like a perfectly normal call from microsoft ! I think not.
    DO NOT TAKE A CALL FROM THESE PEOPLE DO NOT ANSWER IF U SEE THE NUMBER AND ADD IT TO YOUR BLOCKED LIST IF POSSIBLE TOTAL SCAMMERS

  4. Jean reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Called twice yesterday. Answered first call to be told they were from Windows and there was a problem with PC. Hung up. Called again later in day and ignored call

  5. Dave L reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Cost trap

    Indian lady started telling me I had a problem with Windows. I told her that she was unscrupulous and I considered that her actions were those of the scum of the planet. I blocked the number using my CPR Callblocker gadget (there are many alternatives). I pay for my phone, it's for me, what gives anyone other than me the right to use it to harass me? The call blocker gives me peace and control over my phone again, but I had to pay for it. I want these low-life's to reimburse me. I really don't know how they can sleep at night, but clearly they do and do so without a hint of conscience.

  6. Deb reported number 02088523462 with score 9

    Called saying issues with my computer. Told him to go away his company is committing fraud and they are not having access to my PC.

  7. xyz reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    I too have just had exactly the same call as others from this Asian guy. I don't understand how these people can still be operating from the same telephone number without having been investigated and taken offline by the Police. Because no scam has actually taken place, Action Fraud don't want the detail, just to record the attempted fraud in their stats. Presumably some people are falling for this.

  8. Deimos reported 02088523462 with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    I've had three calls today from 02088523462 five yesterday, every time trying to convince me that they are "Microsoft technical" that my computer is "sending them errors".
    I know this is bs and decided today to have a nice long conversation with them about my background in networks engineering and how I know it is bs, but I understand that the guy on the other line is only doing his job and reading a script and that if he doesn't get abusive with me we should be able to resolve this.
    I simply stated that, I am the only one at my address that deals with technical issues and every call they make here will be directed to me, they will never receive any money from anyone at this address and it is a waste of both my time and theirs for them to even try.

    I really hope that they get the message now, maybe next time they ring I'll just keep them on the line all day...

  9. Norma Hedley reported Microsoft? with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    At least 5 call in the last 2 days about my computer having problems - mine is brand new and has had no problems that microsoft would need to deal with!!!!! Some are answered when I lift my hand set and some are not. This is verging on harassment!!

  10. JUdyD reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    I have had 6 calls from this number in 24hrs. Why can't they be stopped?!

  11. Gill reported number 02088523462 as unknown

    Peter rang saying he was ringing about my broadband problems with BT. Hung up before I could respond suitably.

  13. Phil reported number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    These people do not identify themselves they suggest that your computer is causing problems on the internet. If you allow them in investigate your computer they will show you all the problems that your computer is supposedly causing. Then for a fee of around £200 they will "clean" your computer. About six months later they will contact you again. Are these hackers?

  14. Jen reported number 02088523462 as MICROSOFT ??

    PERPORTING TO BE RINGING DUE TO MICROSOFT WINDOWS PROBLEM ON MY PC? REALLY ? SPOKEN WITH TWO WOMEN THEN A MALE ALL GIVING THE SAME STORY AND THAT MY PC WOULD BE LOCKED DOWN ON CHALLENGING THEM SAID I KNEW THEY WERE SCAMMERS AND THAT NO DOUBT THEY WOULD WANT MONEY EVEN WHEN I ADVISED I WORK FOR POLICE, TRUE, THEY STILL WENT ON.

  15. Mrs S reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    With in a minute of posting my comment phone has just rung and it's them again told them to **** off.

  16. Mrs S reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    We have had 5 calls from this number this week. Husband challenged them why he was calling and was given a load of abuse. Don't know if this has anything to do with it but we recently changed providers from Sky to Plusnet, also we were bombarded with calls like this a few years back when we switched from BT to Sky.the timeing just seams a bit odd

  17. Mark E reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Asian female reportedly from "Windows Tech Support" called to tell me that that they had received numerous error messages from my computer and that she was there to help. Ran off a load of numbers and letter supposedly from my computer licence and when asked to repeat it the numbers and letters did not match. When asked to supply I.P. address hung up. "Windows Tech Support" would never ring. Total scam.

  18. Kevin reported Windows Technical with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Asian gent phoned [very poor English]on 0208 8523462 stating that he was working for windows and that my computer was experiencing problems which was affecting its processing ability. I suspected a scam and played along, immediately unplugging my internet connection. He gave some basic commands i.e. 'eventvwr' and 'msconfig' in an attempt to prove his authenticity. He quoted my Microsoft Licence number and then stated he required me to re-connect to the internet. I asked why he couldn't have provided an e-mail request from Microsoft? He stated he would send one and surprise surprise, it never came. Very aggressive when being spoken to.

  19. North Yorkshire reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Cost trap

    Claimed to be Natwest Bank and the National Crime Agency said £500 had been taken from account were giving back £5000 which we were to withdraw from the account and put into another account at Barclays Bank because that was nearer for us and we wouldn't have to travel as far! Absolute scammers, targeting vulnerable people.

  20. Paul reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Don't Fool me. This is the microsoft scam and I told the Indian bloke that I knew what the call was about.

  21. john r reported number 02088523462 as unknown

    call to my mother claiming to be computer support. they had seen issues with her computer.
    funny thing is my mother doesnt have a computer.

  22. Greengirl reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Scammers. I just hang up as soon as they ask "how are you today?"....unless i feel like having some fun, then i reel off a long list of issues, like "preposterous piles" or "cretinous constipation". Don't even have a Windows computer, but that doesn't stop them calling.

  23. Mrs B reported number 02088523462 as Cost trap

    phoned at 8.30 am ..!advised problem with my computer - when advised if they kept calling I would report them, lady said 'I don't care, I will keep calling' - and they have! just had another call which I ignored! have now blocked this number

  24. Peteff reported 02088523462 with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    This number called 3 times today someone claiming to be Dave from Windows Technical. We hung up first time then my wife answered and said thank you for your concern and how kind he was for notifying her there was a problem she would take the computer into the shop. Third time I answered and he said my computer ewas at risk as it had been hacked and my life could be in danger. I told him I knew who it was who was doing it they live down the road and I was going round there immediately to sort them out and he hung up on me.

  25. John reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Cost trap

    Woman called asking to speak to main computer user and said they have received lots of warnings from my computer. She psoke very bad english and I ended the call when they suggested to install a remote program on my computer.

  26. Jan reported Windows with the number 02088523462 as Cost trap

    Several calls now - Asian Guy calling from 'Windows Technical'about my computer. Apparently something wrong with my computer so need to turn it on so they could sort it out. I asked them to tell me what my computer IP address is - which obviously they can't tell me because they don't know who they are speaking to.
    IT IS A SCAM - THEY WANT A ONE OFF, LIFETIME PAYMENT.
    Told them it was a scam. He got angry at this. So I said don't call again and that I was reporting their number to police - Action Fraud. Also helpful to say you are checking with Microsoft and Police. Suggest you do report the number to Acton Fraud as suggested by other reports.

  27. gatley reported Windows Helpdesk? with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Caller (3rd time this week)said I had problem with my windows and asked if I was the owner of the computor. When informed him the computor was owned by the company he said "OK, bye-bye" and hung up.

  28. Sam reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Called and left an answer message of 2 words "F you"

  29. sick-n-tired reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Second call in a week from this number. This time the caller soon degenerated into obscene abuse. He threatened to call me hundreds of times until I went to hell. It would be funny if it wasn't potentially frightening for vulnerable people such as my disabled brother who fears such calls. I sincerely hope that the previous comments on this site about the fact that the Met Police are investigating are true and that this organisation gets shut down.

  30. Dave reported Microsoft with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Called me and I told them I was reporting to police. Five minutes later they rang again, so I set off a rape alarm next to the mouthpiece. Hopefully, they are now curled up under their desk with blood running from their ears.

  31. simo reported Windows Technical Centre with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Hi, I'm Frank from WTC, how are you today? At which point I said, "Good morning, what are you selling?". Nothing but you have a problem with your windows pc. "really?". Yes, then launched into irrelevant techno babble at which point I said that he was talking horse sh1t, said good bye and hung up.
    Looking through the comments this number has been running for months, has been reported to BT and the police but they're still operating??? For the love of God can someone in authority not shut down these b'stards?

  32. Ynot reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Repeated calls about a problem my computer is supposedly having - given me a very long computer identity number and then I had to verify that number on my computer at which point I stopped listening. They then rang back. Getting this call nearly every day.

  33. Jane reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Aggressive advertising

    Several calls now - yesterday was told she (asian lady) calling from Windows Technical dept about my computer. Apparently something wrong with my computer! I needed to turn it on, give them my computer ID so they could sort it out. I asked for name, tel no and address and she gave me - Microsoft, Cambridge. BE WARNED IT IS A SCAM AND THEY WANT MONEY _ A ONE OFF, LIFETIME PAYMENT.
    Eventually I told them it was a scam (she got angry at this) and to stop harassment calls. Also helps to say you are reporting them to Microsoft and Police. Suggest you report to Acton Fraud as suggested by other reports.

  34. Angela reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Received numerous calls some unanswered from this no, answer yesterday and was told calling from windows regarding my computer, to which I replied delete me from your data base, and was told this couldnt be done, so I hung up. Just had a call from David today stating someone has hacked my computer and I need to turn it on and confirm my computer ID to sort it out, I told him I wasnt doing this and he said they would have to block my computer if this wasnt done, I asked for his name, tel no and address to which he gave me microsofts, kingdom st, and I said I would call him back, he said he would ring me in an hour, but I told him to stop bullying me and would call him back after I have made a call to check this up. After making the call and checking this no I will not be giving out any details, and if they persist will be contacting microsoft and the police. Thankyou for the information on this no.

  35. 2MinutesOfLife reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Telemarketer

    Dead giveaway when she said she was calling from the Microsoft Windows centre (or something that sounded similar). Heard from them before. Waste of time, scam and bogus.

  36. Andy reported Windows??? with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    Yet another series of calls (5 in all over the course of an hour) from these thieving b****rds today. Kept trying to tell me it was my windows 7 pc, then gave me a spurious windows registration number, but couldn't let me know my IP address. Then when I told her it was a windows 10 machine, switched to telling me it was my windows server. I do run a server, but it's Linux! They really won't give up will they!

  37. Joe reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    We have recieved over 10 calls that have now become abusive. Reported to Microsoft, BT and the Police, have a crime reference number and they are set to follow-up with the Met.

  38. Jan reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Cost trap

    Call from Micro Technical - Asian lady, wantingd to talk to the main user of computer. Asked why? She did not have a name and got agitated when I wouldn't give her any info. When I asked where she got our number from, she said this is the number we registered our computer on. Told her that wasn't true and asked her to give me the computer IP number after several minutes of requesting this - she hung up.

  39. Magwit reported unknown with the number 02088523462 as Cost trap

    Told me there was a problem with my computer

  40. Sc00byd00byd00 reported Microsoft Technical Team with the number 02088523462 as Harassment calls

    I actually love these calls. I work in IT so know exactly what type of issues certain non PC literate people have and I pulled every one of them. Ala Homer Simpson; "Where's the Any Key" lol
    Last time they called, kept them on the phone for nearly 90mins trying to get them to reset my password to log in, then told them I couldn't get to the web page. After an hour I told them I didn't have broadband. They then asked how I got on the Internet, I told them I dialled up. I then proceeded to find a modem sound board app on my mobile and played that down the phone whilst talking to him. I could hear the frustration in his voice but he persisted. I almost felt sorry for him. Clearly working on commission before passing the phone over to somebody who actually knows what they are in about !!
    Don't be duped by these guys though !!
