Received a call from 1-999-910-0152. I was told that they were working together with Microsoft and that I had several bad viruses in my computer and it was about to crash. I right away started to laugh on the inside.
The lady of the phone sounded like she was calling from India. Not being able to contain myself any longer I began to laugh out loud. I asked how did she get my phone number and she told me when I set up my computer with Microsoft I gave them my phone number. She would not allow me to phone back because there was no guarantee that I would get her on the phone.
I then asked is it not more important for me to remove the viruses then ensuring she would receive credit on the phone. Did not matter, I had to deal with her and only her.
To make a long story short I told her that I had a Mac computer so what she has told me thus far was a complete lie. Needless to say she hung up.
If you get a similar call, just tell them you have a Mac computer and they won't know what to do.
