Hi

I have just had a phone call from an Indian or pakistani Gent purportedly working for Microsoft saying that my computer is infected and will go down in 15 days. I could hardly hear him as the line was bad but I told him several times my computer is fine and if not I will take it to my local shop, eventually the line went dead.

I have just spoken to my local shop and I am not the only one to be targeted, they told me another lady had paid £175 to the caller for her computer to be fixed, the caller then took remote control of her computer!!
