  • Hi bkin57, are these calls purporting to be from Cox? You can report fraudulent tech support calls to the Federal Trade Commission (U.S. only) at or to your local law enforcement agency. You may also sign up for the National Do Not Call Registry: You may also setup NOMOROBO: Thank you, we are here 24/7. -Mike

    They didn't call you from that phone number.  They dialed you from a computer and spoofed the Caller ID.  The number doesn't show up in any of the scam-fighting websites.  You did the right thing by ignoring their request.
