Is this a scam? If so, how can I go about reporting it?
Posted on 2014-11-14
I keep getting calls, from another country(I am in US) by the sound of the accent, telling me that my computer is sending error messages to their server, and that my anti-virus software is not working, that I am infected with ???? and to please sit down in front of my computer and they will tell me what to do. They mumble something about Microsoft Operating System, but deny working for the company when asked. I told them to stop calling me, but they continue. I can't really understand what they are saying because of the accent, but am very upset that they continue to do this. Has anyone else experienced something like this? How can I report them? It feels like a terrible scam.....I don't know if they are trying to sell me software or worse, get their hands on my personal information(or more of it).
Let me know.
