Call from 210-249-0540. There was no one (dead air) on the line.

For those wondering about the multiple calls ands the 'silences', this is easy. These scammers use a computer to call maybe 50 random numbers simultaneously. They then deal whichever one answers first, work their 'spiel' and ignore the rest. The computer then later re-dials any numbers which answered. But onced again, they can only handle a few calls at a time. Eventually they get to YOU! There are several ways of getting them to erase your number.........one is to nake a recording of the 'chirping' sound a fax machine makes when you call it and play that in their ear. If they think you're a fax line they take you off their list. Another is to speak to them, act dumb and waste as much time with them as you possibly can before telling them to get lost. This occupies them from other calls and reduces their efficiency. Another, more brutal, is to buy the loudest police or referees' whistle you can, get the guy talking and then punish him by constantly blowing the whistle in his ear. Finally, a golden rule.................NEVER speak to an incoming call until spoken to. Its common courtesy for someone MAKING a call to introduce themselves first. If they dont, then stay totally silent. This confuses them.

Call from 210-249-0540. There was a live person on the line. It was phone scam.
Caller: Novatel in caller ID. Calling on behalf of: Novatel.

Caller with bad connection and an accent said he was calling because his comapny' servers were picking up many errors from my computer. I told him my computer did not run Windows and he seemed confused, said "Good bye" and hung up.

Just had the call. I'm in the uk too. Being a suspicious person once I saw it was from outside the uk I didn't pick up. Can't be too careful nowadays. Immediately googled the number and found this useful website. As I suspected, its a scam. Added the number to my blocked numbers list on my iPhone.

Didn't answer it but obviously is a scam call from the other comments people have made. Strangely enough I'm in the UK, getting a call all the way from the US for a scam? How did they even get my number?

Got a call from this number (210-249-0540) about 12:35 EST. Insisted he was from Microsoft and wanted me to go on line so that he could give me instructions on how to protect my computer.Upon asking for some verification as a call back number, we got disconnected. I obtained a number from this site by another commenter, dailed it and was connected with 'JT' in the ITT department with NOVA TEL in Texas. Very nice guy. They were aware of the issue abd he was very rpompt in offering assistance to block that number. Thanks JT. I hope this helps others.

I'm tired of u people calling and using the name card services and a Microsoft fix my computer company. I have asked u not to call me and now I'm deeming this as a harassing phone call and will be turning it over to my attorney to start the process of filing legal action against your telemarking services. When I called back no one answered. That's good I had a lot of choice words that you wouldn't even think of to call the person that keeps calling me.

02/25/2014 call came in at 5:22pm EST. Michigan, Grand Rapids Caller ID was Novatel. Frank from Teamviewer is a floor supv. and wanted to help me fix my computer. I pressed him to give an address to me, after a long pause and after several attempts to divert my question he gave me this address; Mectrin Solutions 8811 Teel parkway suite 6151 Frisco, TX. 75035 He gave me a return phone number as 1 888 644-7797, My caller ID showed 210 249-0540 novatel I called information in Texas has nothing for Mectrin or Novatel. Frank was from India.

Guy from India with Windows scam calls repeatedly using this number to route their calls from India. I just contacted Novatel and they are fully aware of the problem. Call Novatel at the number below and give them your phone number and date/time of call and they will research and block the international number that is using Novatel's main number. I asked why they didn't cancel the line and they said they can't, as it has been their main number. I pointed out that people have been reporting the problem with this number since at least 2008, so the harassment will likely continue. "JT" (very nice guy) said if people keep reporting the time of the calls, they can locate each IP address the scammers are using and continue to block them. Worth a try...

Caller claimed to be from Microsoft saying they had been receiving error messages that indicated my hard drive was being compromised. I was very suspicious and let them go on talking me through steps for a while - when they wanted me to access the Run dialog screen, I told them I didn't think so and said I would report the scam and hung up on them. They tried calling back about six times before they gave up.

This is a social engineering scam that has been circulating. The call actually originates from another area (probably another country). They get your IP and your enter command code allowing remote access and then....shockingly...your computer is hijacked and any information on it is vulnerable. I would like to find these turds and shove my computer sideways where the sun don't shine. Thank god Iphone allows you to block calls but I have been called by the same group using another number.

Oh man! I should win easy in the next academy award for best actress! I just got a SCAM call from some one who could not speak English. (Novatel210-249-0540) He told me my computer had a virus and he is with Microsoft to correct and clear the virus. (Actress/Karen Oh no! My computer....) he gave me instructions on what to do while in front of my computer. (I repeat back instructions while sitting in my recliner, smoke a cigarette and drinking my Miller Light.). Ok, did that, what else...please tell me my computer is okay. " Calm down mam, we will protected you from any virus". Of course he was not getting the computer reading he wanted yet I am tell him my computer is run a bunch of numbers and stopped with an error. He stated he needed to transfer me to a higher tier which was his supervisor. Me: Great, please help me, I do not want anyone hacking. Another foreign voice comes on, introduce himself, I asked repeat and spell your name? (My name is Jerry the supervisors to further assist you. He gave me instructions I kept repeating with Ok, did that. (Time for another beer) Then the BOMB. "Jerry!" "Yes". I need to inform you this call is being recorded. I do not own a computer and therefore what you are doing is a SCAM. CLICK. Lol. The highlight of my day. I win.....best actress in the next academy awards. Now I got to report this phone number on the federal website as scam. Hope it still works or has this too been a Berry (Obama) cutback?

Received a call from 210-249-0540 and a man named Thomas Grundy stated that they were doing an investigation on one of our former employee's. He said he needed to come by our office and HAND DELIVER something to her. I was highly suspicious due to all the background chatter but told him that any correspondence needed to come to my attention (and then I gave him my name - eek!). My advise is to HAND UP AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE after telling them you plan to report them to the FCC!!

This morning I heard part of the recording stating something about a debt - I have never had Novatel service in my life, and I am tired of being called this early in the morning, ESPECIALLY on Christmas eve!

These people call us constantly and when we pick up to tell them to take us off the call list, it is only dead air. So I searched the phone number and got this page. I called the first number listed, for Alan Saltzman. Some other guy answered and when I said somebody keeps calling here from this phone number, he said "From MY phone number" really snottily like how dare I say that. He tried to get my name and I wouldn't give it to him. He said it was to take me off their call list "As soon as humanly possible." I said he didn't need my name to do that and gave him my number. As soon as I hung up, they called back. I am calling the phone company now and reporting them. Then I'm contacting the Better Business Bureau.

I called Novatel. They said they're a long distance company and that this is an unassigned number, so they'll have their engineers track down which of their customers might be using it to show on Caller ID, and will tell them to knock it off.

I answered the phone saying I was someone else, she asked for me directly. She said because I responded to some "marketing" advertisement, she wanted to talk to Suzanne about the benefits that came with the Visa Card she was being or free. Since "I" wasn't home she was sending something by mail. I can't wait to see what it is, or if I get anything. The only "marketing" ad I responded to was books from that crook Kevin Trudeau. I've been getting weird calls ever since I did that.
