Man with an accent said something was wrong with my computer. I told him "Nothing is wrong with my computer" and I hung up. Remember getting this call sometime last year.
person with a heavy accent said he was from Windows and was calling about my computer. Since Windows is not the name of a company I knew right away it was a scam and hung up.
They said that they were from Microsoft Security and that I might have a computer virus. They wanted remote access to my computer. Fortunately I read about this scam the day before. Once they get access, they install a virus that locks your computer. Then they charge you $300.00 to unlock it. Bad Guys.
I contacted Microsoft but they were totally unhelpful.
