Another scammer from Computer Technical Support Department. If you are tempted to believe them, just remember that, for the vast majority of home computer users, there is no way they can trace your network activity back to your phone number.

Female caller with thick accent called and said my windows computer was sending out viruses and needed to be fixed. I asked which operating system because I have 9 computers with different operating systems. She said all of them. I asked which computer because all 9 are on the same network and three of them are setup to monitor fraudulent calls from callers using the Magic Jack system so they can be traced, located and prosecuted. I heard a CLICK. She hung up! I was laughing so hard! If you get called HAVE FUN WITH THEM. It's a blast. I want them to call back.
This number called my house yesterday and spoke to my dad. An Indian guy claiming to be 'Brandon' from 'Computer Technical Support Department with Windows' said that there was a problem with our Windows operating system and that he needed my dad to get on the computer so that he could walk him through the repair. My dad hung up. The guy called back today and I recognized the number and answered and told the guy to stop trying to scam us. He got angry and argued and insisted he was not a scammer. I told him I was going to call the police if he didn't stop calling and he told me 'Go ahead, your computer will come crashing down if you do not let me fix it.' Very obvious scam.
Caller ID said "unavailable" so I ignored it. Rang only twice, then stopped.

Just another annoying telemarketer.
