I received a phone call that began with
Can I speak to the user of the computer?
Then the caller started explaining he’s from Windows. I hung up, frustrated, because it’s a scam. Never believe anything like this from an unsolicited caller. Talking to other people it’s evident the scam involves the caller gaining remote access to your computer, installing spyware, then invoicing you for their time.
Have you received phone calls like this? Care to share your experience?
