I have had several of these calls and some say they are Microsoft engineers - Microsoft engineers or windows engineers for that matter DO NOT call people at random. This is most definitely a scam and what they get you to do is download software so that they can access EVERYTHING on your computer. Some start off saying that they have had word from your internett provider that your computer is running slow - NO SERVER PROVIDER WILL ASK ANYONE ELSE TO DO WHAT THEY CAN DO THEMSELVES! Do what I do - tell them to stick their software where the sun don't shine. These people, in my opinion, are the scum of the earth!! Oh one other thing you could try - register your telephone number with the TPS - Telephone Preference Service which stops all tele sales/marketing and hopefully these so called microsoft / windows engineers!! I have just re-registered my number (I think you have to do it once a year?) And very well done for not downloading!
I JUST got a call from this number and I read your accounts... He was saying that my computer was showing signs of a virus, and he was calling from Microsoft to help me. I was thinking that I did send an error report a few days earlier to Microsoft, but WHY would they be calling ME personally..... I got an uneasy feeling, and told him that we were going to have a friend look at our computer. He didn't respond, and hung up. Not very professional if you ask me. Thank you for posting about this number. I did not stay on the line long enough to see what all he wanted to do with my computer.
