pop up that gets through blocker.
"Your computer has been blocked" with Windows logo in background. "You must call Microsoft immediately at this number to prevent damage to our equipment" Then there are two more smaller windows that open so you don't have time to close all three before they pop back up. Coupled with this is a LOUD warning sound.
Close out of Internet completely and lose whatever else you're doing. Reboot. Windows Defender doesn't find any virus; Malwarebites does sometimes...
pop-up got through my blocker.

Absolutely a scam. They called me on a bad day. I immediately called back and when they answered in that lovely India accent. I hollered “stop calling my number you fn scammers” they immediately hung up.

But they are from india
Caller ID is "TOLL FREE CALL" and the robot message is the usual about hiding and/or fraud on taxes and the IRS is coming after you. Typical scam.
