Caller ID says "Internatnl Call". Warning bells before I even picked up the phone. It is a scam. You can barely understand them and they said they are from Windows Microsoft. They want to do some sort of update on your computer because the computer is sending them error messages. I didn't understand what he was talking about. I finally said I didn't have a computer that I use my iPhone or iPad. Then he was like oh umm well never mind then it miss be sending errors from someone else's computer in your name. Then said God bless you and your children's children and hung up. WTH!

caller told me my computer was giving out info that it had errors He then went on to tell me what to do to correct it. Which I did not do. I asked for his name & phone number so could have my tech support call him. He hesitaed then said his name was Jerri Julian at 1 888-270-5577. I told him my IT guy would contact him. He then hung up

Obvious scammer from the start. If you're not a computer pro then just tell them you know they're scamming and hang up. He has you get on the computer and pull up your event viewer which will show you failed computer operations numbering in the thousands. Explains how the computer has been corrupted and needs to be fixed lol. Tells you to use the Windows button+R to pull up the run command. Have you type in www.teamviewer.com. I wasn't willing to roleplay beyond that point cause it would involve the installation and activation of a remote host. He explained that they have alot of people to help and it's the quickest way to get my poor computer fixed. If I had finished my black computer that doesn't have access to my router settings I could have collected information about his IP and DNS he was coming from. One day they'll call the wrong person and they'll get played.
