O/T Windows Security call centre scam

Postby matster » Mon Aug 08, 2011 11:19 am

I have received several calls from a Windows Security call centre of possible Asian origin claiming that my computer is riddled with viruses and I need to log on and they will help me fix them. I usually string them along for a bit before claiming I don't own a computer in the hope that they will strike me off their list. I searched online and found this, it is obviously happening to lots of people so don't be fooled.

Obviously don't ever give away details and never download anything.

Has anyone else had them call?
