Received voicemails from this number stating I owed them money as the above posts.  I had no knowledge of the debt but did not even give it thought.  NO COMPANY per US law can threaten to have you arrested.  There is NO such thing as debtor's prison to which I told the caller.  She was a woman from India with a very thick accent.   She immediately transferred me to her supervisor whom threatened me as well.  I quoted the US  laws to him and explained that I am aware of how they are calling and threatening Americans.  I explained I had registered the number and information with the government's website per their request.  I just wanted to know their address so I could provide to the US States government.  I explained we were fully aware of their fraudulent activities and actively pursuing them for it.  He refused to give me the address.  I told him I would consider paying this supposed debt.  He changed and was very excited.  I explained I would need his address since I would mail him a money order.  Ironically they will ONLY accept electronic transfers to this debt.  LOL do not fall victim to these people.  They are just your typical scam artists.  EVEN if you do owe them money, you cannot be arrested.

Received a voice mail stating to call this number immediately, not to disregard it or only God could help me and that she wished me the best of luck.  Claimed she was calling for a law firm, her name was Diana White and to call 661-210-4684 so she could help me or to have my attorney call.  I called after reading some of the posts here feeling I was armed with good info from fellow posters.  The person threatened me, stating I would be brought to court tomorrow morning - he didn't know which court however - because I haven't paid a dime to the payday loan company.  I told him of course I haven't as I have never had a payday loan from any company in my life.  These people are pushy and use threats to try to obtain personal info.

This person who said his name was James Parker (I thought he said Zeus Parker) called my cell and at work and told me to get my attorney involved as I was to have to pay them for some payday loan in the amount of $4800.00. If I didn't pay them at once I would have to go to the court house and pay attorney fees, blah, blah blah. I then asked for paper work on this issue and to provide documentation that I did this transaction.  He gave me a date which in no way could have been true.  I told him that I haven't had that checking account since a couple of years.  He told me that was the problem.  I questioned him and questioned him and kept interrupting him.  He also told me this was the last courtesy call I would receive and that the federal officials would be here in the morning to pick me up.  I also asked where he was calling from and all he told me was from the state you are in.  I told him that this was not an area code in my state and he must be mistaken.  I also told him that since this phone call was being monitored he needed to listen to what I was telling him and hung up on him.

Yeah I got this call - AT WORK - and was told that I will have to pay $763 to stop a lawsuit from happening. The guys name that talked to me, and mind you he was of Indian decent, was Ronnie Richards. You know who Ronnie Richards is? He is a musician! Anyways, "Ronnie" told me that if I didn't pay his law firm (lol) the money that I would be subject to not only a lawsuit but arrest, and even gave an example of a woman who took my tack of not giving them s***. He said that she was now "behind the bars" for 8 to 9 months. I asked for some documentation on this debt. I was told that I cannot have any paperwork because I have not made a payment. Furthermore, I was told that not only does their company not give paperwork on this supposed pay day loan as per the contract, I was sent an email on this matter. I asked for a hard copy detailing my debt sent certified mail and was denied. IMy family was even threatened! I laughed and said I will give you nothing unless you provide me more information. I was told that only God will help you now and good luck in court. "I hope you have enough evidence to prove your innocence". The company name given was vague and I was read the counts I was facing, including bank fraud, but no case number was ever given. It is funny yet so sad that this is the world we live in.

Thank you for this info about the fraud!I also keep receiving phone calls from the number 661-210-4684. Since I don't answer unknown ID's with remote area codes, they leave messages every time, saying in heavily accented English that I "or my attorney" must call them back, and if not then they can only wish me "good luck" or "God bless" or something similar.I have never heard of these people and this behavior certainly does not look very legitimate to me, but can we really put a stop to it if they are all the way in India?

I received a call on 9/9/09 from someone who spoke very poor English. He told me that I was going to be arrested on Monday because I had not paid a payday loan from National Payday Advance. When I returned the call to 661 210-4684, my call was not answered with a company name and I asked for the name of hte firm calling me. I was asked why I thought a "firm" was calling me and was informed that this was a law office. Very few law offices answer their phones without identifying the company or law firm's name. I told this person that I have never heard or borrowed anything from National Payday Advance and I was asked repeatedly if I could prove this in court. When I said that I had never heard of the payday loan company, I was told that they were a "marketing company" but they could not tell me the name of the company I might have dealt with. First of all, you have to be a fool to think that any state or county would come and arrest someone for a debt. In this case, I have never borrowed from this company and know that they are scam artists. When I attempted to return the call, I received a busy signal five times in a row before getting rhrough. When I called back later to ask for the person who owns or manages this office, I received a fax tone. I will report this incident to the Wisconsin Department of Consumer Protection. EVERY PERSON WHO RECEIVES THIS CALL NEEDS TO REPORT THEM TO THEIR STATE GOVERNMENT AND NEEDS TO PETITION THEIR STATE LEGISLATORS TO FOLLOW THE LEAD OF THE STATE OF OHIO WHOSE RESIDENTS VOTED IN A REFERENDUM TO BAN ALL PAYDAY LOAN OPERATORS IN THAT STATE.

Anyway, I also had a call at work and argued with another person about this supposed payday loan that I took out and how I was going to be sued for some amount over $5000.

They attempt to extort money from consumers with a myriad of false and illegal threats, and alternately pose as debt collectors, federal and state law enforcement officers, lawyers and bankers. Their trademark is to use meaningless legalese gobbylgook phrases like "We are downloading warrants against you" or "We are filing an affidavit against you." Another trademark phrase is to threaten the consumer with something like this ridiculous phrase: "If you don't pay then only God can help you."Typical of many financial scams of this variety, they usually demand payment via Western Union or MoneyGram or credit card. They use any number of phony names such as US National Bank, Federal Investigation Bureau, US Legal Investigation Bureau, Christian Nicholas & Associates, US Federal Bank, Sonic Bank, Hopkins Law Office, CashNet, United Legal Processing, Morgan Associates, United Pay Services, National Processing, White Collar Crime Unit and many more.  These criminals also use many phone numbers from many area codes; they're probably using caller-id spoofing software and/or VoIP to disguise their real location.The main thing to remember is that anytime someone calls you demanding money to prevent your arrest, or demanding your lawyer's name so they can sue you, 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 foreign dirtbags routinely impersonate law enforcement, it's also important to remember that American law enforcement officers aren't in the business of debt collection.  (Debt is a civil, not a criminal, matter.)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 (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.

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 if the crooks claim to be law enforcement or lawyers, officers of the court or bankers, be sure to include that information in your report.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://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/FTC_Wizard.aspx?Lang=enIf 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 *small* sample of numbers used by this particular group of scammers. Read the reports and you'll see the same pattern time and again -- phony organization names, thick foreign accents, and oddly worded threats that are so melodramatic and ridiculous that it's laughable:http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-336-553-3965http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-909-6789http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-925-262-1327http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-678-954-6346http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-341-4004http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-856-831-0640http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-949-743-1140http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-410-505-8128http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-917-464-2534http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-210-858-6602http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-888-775-2121http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-310-909-8245http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-949-743-1156http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-214-245-1402http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-214-245-0922http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-214-723-5572http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-904-425-2863http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-718-831-7157http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-904-425-2857http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-858-244-0444...and, many, MANY more.http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-858-248-4818#pqP47Cwar9gApUAjL6vNH3AAt LONG last...these scammers are fimally getting the national attention they so richly deserve:Full release from the Better Business Bureau:Widespread Harassment from Phony Debt Collectors Raises Concerns of Mass Data Breach, Warns BBB Scammers may have Social Security and bank account numbers, home addresses and employer informationChicago, IL – August 5, 2009 – The Better Business Bureau is issuing an alert about phony debt collectors that are calling consumers nationwide and claiming that they have defaulted on a payday loan and will be arrested if they don’t pay immediately. Claiming to be lawyers, the scammers say they are with the “Financial Accountability Association” or the “Federal Legislation of Unsecured Loans” and are equipped with a disconcerting amount of personal information about their potential victims. “Because the scammers have so much information about potential victims, the BBB is concerned that this may be the result of a data breach,” said Steve J. Bernas, president & CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois. “Thousands of people may have had their personal information compromised, and given the scammers’ tactics, it appears that those who have previously used payday loan services could be particularly at risk.”According to reports received by the BBB and posted online, the scammers accuse the victim of defaulting on a payday loan and claim they are being sued. The phony debt collector threatens that, if the victim doesn’t pay as much as $1,000 immediately via wire or by providing bank account or credit card numbers, he or she will be arrested and extradited to California within the hour to stand trial. The scammers often may have the victim’s Social Security, old bank account numbers or driver’s license numbers as well as home addresses, employer information and even the names of personal friends and professional references. The BBB offers the following advice to consumers if they receive a suspicious telephone call about an outstanding debt: * Ask the debt collector to provide official documentation in writing which substantiates the debt. * Do not provide or confirm any bank account, credit card or other personal information over the phone until you have confirmed the legitimacy of the call. * Review recent copies of your credit reports to ensure that the alleged debt is not affecting your credit. Consumers can do this for free once every 12 months, and can find more information here: http://www.ftc.gov/freereports * Under the Federal Trade Commission's Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, debt collectors may not harass, oppress, or abuse any person while attempting to collect a debt. * A debtor may be contacted between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. only and can be contacted at work unless instructed not to. * File a complaint with the FTC online if the caller is abusive, uses threats or otherwise violates federal telemarketing laws. * File a complaint with BBB online at www.bbb.org if you believe a debt collector is trying to scam you. http://www.thinkglink.com/article/2009/08/06/ ... eading-says-bbb

They called my cell and told me to get my attorney involved as I was to have to pay them for some payday loan plus $250.00. If I didn't pay them at once I would have to go to the court house (God knows where)and   pay $5,000.00. I asked what court house and the caller was vague. I then asked for paper work on this issue and after making wild statements hung he hung up on me.I believe this is a second tier collection agency. I saw a very interesting news report on dateline last night about abusive collection attempts. The caller also had very broken english and couldn't even pronounce my name. Obviously I let it go.

If she doesn't hear back from me or from my attorney then she wishes me the best of luck as the situation unfolds on me. I talked to her and she told me that I got $ 400 from some place online on these dates and I know that I didn't. I even looked to make sure of that. Then she told me that I had to be in court on Thursday to pay them $ 5,800 for this. Plus if I wanted to avoid all of this I had to pay $ 750 today. This is fraud and she hasn't called me back after I let her have it. She even said that there would be investigators at my house to take me to court.

She continued with her script saying things about making money from a few hundred to a few thousand, and asked if I could use that extra money.  I told her I have no need for the money at all.  She then said to me "You have no need for $4000 to $30,000.00 a month extra money?”  I told her no, as I had no debts and I already make money through various options and do well. She kept being persistent and I said I have no need at all for the money.  She was stunned not knowing what to say, and then said goodbye.  I received one more call on Aug 23, 2012 from the 731-433-0440.  Additional notes: I received 8 emails from Aug 19 - Aug 28 about making money, three different names were from the same company: Cheryl Miller, Lisa Dianne and Kevin Rothschild then in parenthesis (support@ipsmembers.com) and at the bottom far right of each email was a Link to NetAtlantic (that link was just a marketing company that radiates the emails).  All this started when I decided to try a work at home program and signed up for it on AUGUST 19, 2012 with Mobilemoneymachines2.com. (Common link at bottom of each email was NetAtlantic).  Today on 08/28/12 I clicked the cancel link to the support@ipsmembers.com and now I will just wait and see if any calls or emails come from them.  I am still signed up with the program with mobilemoneymachines2.com and will cancel if it turns out to be either a scam or just a money asking machine for new programs each time.

I just got a call on my cellphone from this number. I didnt pick up though, I thought I'd google the number. I called that number back on a land line and it was some Russian guy picked up. I told him I got a call from this number so I called back. He said that this is a telephone company. He didnt give the name and seemed confused as to why I got a call from them. He didnt seem to know too much about the company or he was just not saying anything to me. Maybe its a telemarketing scam.

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.

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.

I just got a call from this number.  The Caller ID said it was a Skype User #.  The caller asked my employee, (who answered the phone), for me by name.  When I answered, the caller hung-up.I called the number & it confirmed that I could not reach this person because it was a Skype #.

This is not a Skype harassment, it is a regular caller, who able to call bat you can't call back on the same number because the caller have no a phone number. You able to buy with a small fee an account to call from Skype anyone who you like for unlimited. If you invest more, than you able to buy a phone number too from Skype, and use it as a regular phone. Otherwise no one able to return your call. It is so simple. At the beginning I did the same thing, used my Skype to call out, after a year experience I decided it is worth to buy a phone number from Skype.

I received a call from this number on my cell today... no caller ID other than the number.  I don't ever answer a call from a number I don't recognize: 1) all my friends and business clients have my cell number and I meticulously add their names and numbers to the cell database as I receive them so there is no need for me to answer an unknown; 2) if it is a client or someone that really needs to get to me, my voicemail instructs them to leave a phone number and name so I can verify who they are.  In this instance, it was a client of mine with a 'free' 3-month subscription to Skype and he did leave a message so I know where it came from.  My phone now verbally announces "Skype" when the number dials in.  Thanks to other entries on this site, I will also add the other Skype ID's so I know next time.

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.

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).

How/to whom does a person file a complaint? The same thing happened to me in June 2012 and I paid $199.00 for one years service protection plan. I even was given an account number with McHelp, the name of the company. They called me back yesterday stating I was being hacked again and that it was coming out of China. They were suppose to call me back last night at 7 when I was home and had access to my computer. They did not call. I gave them the lanline phone number. the guy just called be pack on my cell and while I am at work. They are supposedly calling back tonight at 8. He had a very heavy Indian accent and the call was very "echoy" and he spoke rapidly and was rude. I told him he needed to speak slower and clearer and not to be rude to me. I tried calling the number and it is a skype number according to the recording I get. How can I get my money back from June 2012. who can we report this scammer to so it stops and is Microsoft aware of this? I have changed my password on several accounts.

We had that happened a few times. The first time we believed them and spent $199. When we found that they were not connected to Microsoft we filed a complaint with them and they refunded the charge.I changed a number of passwords etc., after that. Calls after that were ignored.

For what it's worth, I just got a call on my cell from this number and I thought the same thing...a scam (which is how I ended up on this site).   However, my husband (traveling in the EU) called about 1 min later on my cell and asked if I was available to Skype.  He confirmed that the call did come from him....he was using his iPad to Skype and that is the number that displayed on my phone.No doubt there ARE scammers out there using this, but if you have friends/family who live far away or who may be traveling, double check with them to make sure it wasn't one of them trying to Skype with you.

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.

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.

This is not a Skype harassment, it is a regular caller, who able to call bat you can't call back on the same number because the caller have no a phone number. You able to buy with a small fee an account to call from Skype anyone who you like for unlimited. If you invest more, than you able to buy a phone number too from Skype, and use it as a regular phone. Otherwise no one able to return your call. It is so simple. At the beginning I did the same thing, used my Skype to call out, after a year experience I decided it is worth to buy a phone number from Skype.

I received a call from this number on my cell today... no caller ID other than the number.  I don't ever answer a call from a number I don't recognize: 1) all my friends and business clients have my cell number and I meticulously add their names and numbers to the cell database as I receive them so there is no need for me to answer an unknown; 2) if it is a client or someone that really needs to get to me, my voicemail instructs them to leave a phone number and name so I can verify who they are.  In this instance, it was a client of mine with a 'free' 3-month subscription to Skype and he did leave a message so I know where it came from.  My phone now verbally announces "Skype" when the number dials in.  Thanks to other entries on this site, I will also add the other Skype ID's so I know next time.

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.

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.

Why should Visa or MasterCard be responsible for the incredible irresponsibility of this "Joni" person?Do you realize that her reversed charges end up costing us money in the aggregate?People need to be responsible for themselves at least a little bit.  Sure, the crooks are the bad guys, but in a case like this, they're really depending on the idiocracy to make their getaway...

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!!!

How/to whom does a person file a complaint? The same thing happened to me in June 2012 and I paid $199.00 for one years service protection plan. I even was given an account number with McHelp, the name of the company. They called me back yesterday stating I was being hacked again and that it was coming out of China. They were suppose to call me back last night at 7 when I was home and had access to my computer. They did not call. I gave them the lanline phone number. the guy just called be pack on my cell and while I am at work. They are supposedly calling back tonight at 8. He had a very heavy Indian accent and the call was very "echoy" and he spoke rapidly and was rude. I told him he needed to speak slower and clearer and not to be rude to me. I tried calling the number and it is a skype number according to the recording I get. How can I get my money back from June 2012. who can we report this scammer to so it stops and is Microsoft aware of this? I have changed my password on several accounts.

We had that happened a few times. The first time we believed them and spent $199. When we found that they were not connected to Microsoft we filed a complaint with them and they refunded the charge.I changed a number of passwords etc., after that. Calls after that were ignored.

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.

This is just ridiculous I receive anywhere from 10 to 12 calls per day from this company called Operation Division. I don't even bother answering the phone because I know that it is a collection agency calling and at this moment I don't have the funds to pay them. They call first thing in the morning at 8 a.m. sharp and don't stop until around 10 p.m. at night to me it seems like they are harassing me but don't get me wrong I do understand that I have this debt and they just want to get paid. But it comes a point where this is sort of like stalking and harassment. It also got to the point where now that call and it comes up on my caller ID as unknown name and unknown number very clever but I'm a little smarter than that. And another thing if they are going to continue to call like this the least they can do is leave a message on my answering machine as to why they are calling they have the nerve to listen to my whole greeting message and then hang up how immature!

Finally, today I called and paid the whole balance off and to what did my wondering eyes did appear????  Tehy are still calling me.  Yep.  I JUST got a phone call from AMEX - no message - just a call.  I didn't answer, but I guess I should have.

they get your cell from a number of directions.  if you have ever called them from it, they have caller id, or, they even contact relatives and friends, stating that it's important to get a hold of you.  only return calls from numbers they already know and if you can, notify everyone you know not to offer any information.  and change your voice mail to not using your own name, just politely asking them to leave a message.  your friends all know you and will.i had a friend who ultimately had to change his cell number.  for me i check the caller id and program them in, works for everyone except the sly ones who block their number or are "unknown", but i never answered either of those anyway.they can get rude and insulting to intimidate you into trying to pay the debt they are collecting.  what a lot of people don't understand is that very few of those who are trouble nowadays are actually deadbeats, they simply fell on bad times and don't have money anymore.  frankly, i like paying bills, it means i have money.
