CALLER ASK FOR PERMISSION TO GAIN ACCESS TO YOUR PC TO CLEAN IT OF ALL TROJANS AND VIRUSES. THE CALLER IS A 1 MILLION PERCENT FRAUD AND SCAM.

Phone rang about five minutes ago. Didn't recognize the number (Caller ID said "Palmdale Area") so I didn't answer it. VM picked up but no message left. Skype/scam call. If you have an iPhone, try this for blocking: www.iphonefaq.org/archives/972898

Caller: "Palmdale Area"

Just received this call and was advised he was a DELL technician and I have issues popping up in my computer. The scary part is he was giving me my Service Tag number and wanted to help me fix my issues.

Caller: Heavy Indian Accent, could not understand very well

Bob called to buy two boat transmissions. $3,600 Said he worked in South America in a fishing area. He was to have me ship the items to a Miami freight forwarder. Had me send a Paypal invoice. Three days later had a gal call and said she was going to wire me the money. She just need my check routing and account number. She said that their Paypal acct had a $1,000 limit. I told her to send $500 to secure the order. Haven't heard from them since.

Caller: Bob, Darmindra, Nalini Ghamandi

(661) 748 0240 appears on outbound calls for Skype users - who have not set up their Skype caller ID yet. A Skype forum says this number is a generic default number. So, it could be from anyone and different people and "entities," and perhaps from a real friend or family member. It is also found to be a "spoofed" phone number, which means CYBERCRIMINALS "tricked" your caller ID to display the incorrect or default skype phone number with a nefarious purpose. NO LEGITIMATE BUSINESS WOULD USE a Skype default # unless they're hiding something. Telemarketers do this so you cannot complain. Crooks do this to sell malware, scam you into giving them a remote connection of your computer to fix what is "infected with viruses", impersonate Microsoft, ISP or other company, to extort or commit other crimes. Criminals are noted to use personal information in the phone calls. Anyhow, my call went like this. They insulted me saying that my website is, cough, cough not ranking well on Google. We are an SEO company. Choke. I told him we are ranking well on all our industry keywords. He says "good luck." Yeah, good luck to you, too scammer.

Another day, another scam. These moron pigs used to call us several times several months ago but we stopped answering calls with Unknown Name, Private Caller, etc., etc., etc. These pigs would sometimes call @ 4:00 am, 2:00 am, and leave a message to return their call which we never did. Then the calls stopped so we thought one dimwit, nincompoop moron off the list of these worthless calls. But the morons have started calling back. Called @ 5:40 pm on 11/3, 10:18 am on 11/4. Of course, they don't leave a message because they think we are as stupid as they are and will try to call their stupid skype call !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the crap we have to go thru every day as business owners with the phone line that we have to pay for each month to AT&T !!!!!!!!!! And to think NSA is so worried about Americans trolling thru the internet - LOL
