Says from Microsoft and your computer is downloading harmful files. Cannot answer whether this is widespread and why he is calling me. Insists on guiding me through a process to isolate the problem; warns I will lose 50% or more of my files, or computer will crash. Cannot answer why they care about my computer. Becomes very insistent that he must help me, not happy when I refused. Provided this phone number when I said I would call back. Total scam.
Told me he was from tech support for my windows computer from Microsoft. He wanted to connect to my computer to solve the problems I had. This same scam (from this same phone number) happened to me about 6 months ago. I told him not to worry about my windows computer and not to call my number again or I would notify the FBI. They then hung up.

I was on my work computer when "Fred" called. Appeared to sound like a deep middle eastern accent. Kept telling me my computer had virus. I asked how does he know, he said we get reports from you internet service. I asked, "Who is my internet service though?" He says, "I don't have that information" ROFL IDIOT. You could tell he was reading from a script. FCC here I come. I'm so sick of this c**p....One day...They will be caught. Someday!

Same MO as the rest of these post. Heavy accent from India, claimed to be from Microsoft support, claimed my computer has been infected, I cautiously played along for a couple minutes (after turning off my WiFi) to see where it was headed, then mentioned I would was not comfortable with him calling me and asked for a phone number. He was insistent on continuing even after giving me the number. I hung up. Called a number I knew was Microsoft to verify it wasn't them. Then came here.
Kevin called me. When I said I did not have my computer on he gave me a complicated set of instructions, which of course I will not follow. I just wanted to see what his gig was. My call sounds like all the other ones reported.
