re: Microsoft Windows Support Call Scams: 7 Facts
I just received the same call! The incoming number was again 222-555-7777 which I knew from a previous call was the same company. I could barely understand the guy.
As I was already in front of my laptop, once I got him to repeat the name of the company, which is Virtual Pc Secure, I had already typed it in and saw all of the comments on this scam. So I acted as if I was entering the info he was giving me, then he was reading this long ID# off... He said this is your computer ID correct? I said no, sorry it isn't... He then became verbally abusive and told me to go "F" myself and hung up!
Is there nothing we can do?
