THIS PERSON NAMED DON SMITH CALLED AND SAID HE WAS A MICROSOFT TECH. HE CLAIMS HE WAS HERE TO HELP ME WITH MY COMPUTER. I ALMOST GAVE HIM MY INFO UNTIL I TOLD HIM I NEEDED TO CALL MICROSOFT TO VERIFY HIS IDENTITY AND I WOULD CALL HIM BACK LATER. UPON CALLING MICROSOFT, THEY SAID IT WAS A SCAM AND PHISHING AND TO NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFORMATION IF THEY CALLED BACK.
I have received 4 calls from a Denzil Daniels at this number. He claims to be from Microtech Support, working with Microsoft, to help me keep unwanted people from putting a virus on my computer, or stealing identity, etc.
He sounds to be from India, always nice, but very persistent. I have told him I would need to check it out, and he still calls back. I will be telling him now that I know it is a scam, and that he has been reported.
I feel bad because I know there are probably thousands of people that would believe him/them, and that will result in problems for them.
