Get phone call from Windows, a scam

Postby bricken » 2012-06-14 3:55


I got a phone call today from someone saying they were from Windows and that my PC has reported errors?They asked me to type in the 'run' menu to show the errors then they asked me to go to this site -http://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx- .I had to hang up at this point to go out.

Did anyone here get the same call?
Of course, I know it's a scam because the guy speak strange English and I know very well that my computer is in good condition.

He want to try to cheat me and ask me to go the website to download the program.
Then send them a remote control request to allow him to fix my PC. I am not idiot.
I will never let stranger to remote control my computer. The hell knows what he will do on my computer.
