I got a call at 4.30 pm on a Saturday from the same number, again an indian(?) lady stating the came stuff. I rand the number back about 3 hours later and an indian(?) man answered saying 'windows technical department' but I still am unsure so hung up. I can understand what she may be saying about malicious and jund file as I get a LOT of junk emails not even addressed to me, but am still wary, can anyone help? Just got a call 5 minutes ago from an Indian lady stating I had a problem with my computer. She said she was associated with Microsoft. I informed her that I didn't have a computer and she hung up!! Huge scam... Never give them any details!! I received a call this afternoon from a lady telling me she was from Windows & they were getting emails from me at odd times of the day. I didnt believe her, although am having pc probs at the moment. I asked her how she got my details? She said she called the shop where i bought the computer & got my details from them, although couldnt tell me where. She could tell me my name, my address & phone number. She asked me to turn on my computer, it was already on but i didnt tell her that. She even said she knew my IP address & quoted it to me. I should have written it down & checked it. I asked for her phone number & said i would call her back but have no intentions. I am concerned that she knew so much. I will be getting a computer technician to check out my settings as soon as possible. This is an old scam using yet another new "fake" number. These people try to get remote access to your computer to "repair" errors which aren't even there in the first place. They show you things which are quite normal on your machine and try to convince you that they are viruses or errors. If you give them remote access they can install spyware and malware which can steal your passwords and any other info you have on there. BBC1 programme "You've been scammed" shown on Monday highlighted the scam. The Director of Security for Microsoft stated on the programme that neither Microsoft nor its partners would ever 'phone you as it would be a breach of their privacy rules. If they ring again tell them you know it is a scam and hang up. I got a call from an Indian lady from (02) 6194 9095 saying we had a microsoft security issue and my pc was downloading viruses or something strange like that. I didn't give her any info and told her I'd call her back once checking my pc, but didn't bother. Shocking this immoral way of trying to get information or get you on the phone long enough to get some personal details. Makes me sick! NEVER DEAL WITH ANYONE always go direct to the genuine company yourself.they are all scams i have had.....we have a deal between the indian government and yours for which you can get tax back,credit card cash back or this latest we are from your broadband we want access to your pc to fix a problem.never reply or deal with them directly,i had some to fix a virus from a bank i don't even use.i always contact the bank online to report it and it is always a scam,its free to message the genuine company and might save someone else.

Telemarkers or scammers. When you answer they don’t answer and when you call back the number is...
