Tech Plaza Call – Fake Microsoft Support

ScamToday I received a call from someone at Tech Plaza – (www.tplaza.info).  THESE PEOPLE ARE A FRAUD!  I recorded the call and the audio is available at the bottom.

They proceeded to tell me they have received notification that my computer has problems and they are willing to help resolve them.  I know several people who have received similar calls and were asked to pay as much as $300 to resolve the “issues”.  They also installed what could be malware on their PCs during the process.

Sometimes they cold call like this…sometimes they answer 800 numbers that are high in the search rankings when searching for things like “Microsoft Support”.

PLEASE let you your friends, family, and yes…even your enemies know about this so they do not fall victim to this.  There is nobody at Microsoft that is going to call you to tell you that your computer is broken/infected/not working well.

If you want to jump straight to the confrontation – jump to 11:25 into the recording.  I didn’t start the recording right away as it took me a minute to get my cell phone and I cut out some of the hold music in the middle – but I did my best to keep them on the line as long as possible.  Enjoy.

    I just got the same call and I am working with him now for over a hour. Still got him on the line. What an IDIOT.

    I just got a call from Tech Plaza and strung the guy along for around a minute before I lost it. A lot of people must fall for this or they wouldn’t keep doing it. Thanks for posting the audio.

    TOTALLY FRAUD AND THEY HOAXED MY 80 YEAR OLD MOTHER INTO SENDING THEM MONEY LAST YEAR. TODAY THEY CALLED AND I ANSWERED AND PRETENDED TO BE HER. THEY SAID THEY WANTED TO REFUND HER THE MONEY FROM LAST YEAR. BUT THEY HAD TO REMOTELY DO IT BY GETTING INTO HER COMPUTER. I TOLD THEM THEY WERE THEIF AND I WAS REPORTING THEM AND THEY HUNG UP. PLEASE SHARE SO NO ONE ELSE GETS CAUGHT IN THEIR SCAM
