On November 2, I received a call from two men with East Asian accents claiming to represent MicroGlobalSolutions. They claimed that the universal microsoft server (no such thing!) had indicated that my computer had been infected with many viruses and that they, as certified microsoft technicions, could fix my computer. Obviously a scam.
