virus
scam
remove
computer
Got a call from this number, listing only the city in the Caller ID. Heavy accented man trying to convince me to go to my computer and remove virus. Wouldn't tell me where he was, what business he was calling from, just that "my computer" was filling "their servers" with activity and he was calling to "help" me get rid of the virus. Could tell immediately that it was a scam, but I'm sure other people would fall for it, because he had my name (probably from some list).

After hanging up I redialed the number and it said it was not in service and was being "used by another carrier outside our control."
