Scam phone calls

Scam phone call warning.

People should be made aware about a scam phone call which is going about and which i have got twice within a week.

The first call was from India, which made me very wary right away, she said she was from Microsoft and they got a diagnostic report i had computer problems, that was the warning to me , because Microsoft do not phone any-one.

I told her that i was able to fix any problems myself and i did not need Microsoft’s help over the phone.

I phoned Microsoft Belfast and they confirmed it was a scam and i was right they don’t phone people, but they can do nothing to stop it.

I have just searched for this and have added this link it seems to be wide spread, please read it, very scary.
