re: Microsoft Windows Support Call Scams: 7 Facts
Have just received one of these phone calls (here in NW England) Having never heard of this scam, I was obviously a little surprised that Windows Technical Support would take the trouble to contact me directly by phone! However I decided to go along with it out of curiosity if nothing else. All went well until the Indian caller asked me to carry out an exe operation.
When I refused and asked him to email me and prove his ID, he became quite stroppy,and eventually passed me onto his supervisor, who explained that an email woul be sent AFTER.
Insisting on an email FIRST, he eventually replied OK, what isyour email address. At which point I hung up!
But at least I wasted 30 minutes of their time!
