In response to:

Claimed to be from Talk-Talk, ringing about an identified infection in our internet connection 9which is not with Talk-Talk).

Wanted us to go onto Internet - would obviously have had us connect to a dodgy website which would download virus etc onto our PC.

Would not give us phone number to ring back on - got this via 1471.

Called at 1:00 in the morning. When i call back it sounds like a fax machine or something

Caller name: Microsoft Computer

This number called us at 10:39 PM on a Sunday. My caller ID displayed "PAYPHONE" so I picked up thinking maybe someone I knew needed help. The caller informed me he wanted to help us with our Microsoft computer. I informed him we did not own such a computer and he promptly hung up.

I had a call to my Singapore cellphone from this number. I did not answer it as I don't know anyone from this area code.

I think someone at USPS must have lifted my cellphone number from a parcel that is being sent to me from the US.

This is one of those Microsoft scammer phone calls. Be careful because they will remote into your computer and can delete files and view sensitive information. Better to just hang up on them.

Got a message of a Robotic voice saying that they have been trying to reach me and this is the final call and that the IRS is filing a case against me, and that I needed to call 323-786-0730, immediately. I do not owe the IRS any money. Scam!
