Computer Tards--Husband just received a call from "Windows Rep" ??? SCAM?? BEWARE PPL!!
He said he just received a call on his cell from someone claiming to be a windows rep and said someone was trying to hack into his computer.

He wanted him to "punch" in some keys..

Anyone familiar with this ?? Scam ??

He said the guy sounded like he had an Indian accent.

He started to hit the keys than got suspicious and hung up?

Thoughts??

It's definitely a scam. Good thing he hung up. I've heard of others being hit by this. What's funny is, you would think they'd at least get it right enough to say "Microsoft rep". As if "Windows" is the name of the company, lol.

They were going to "show" him how someone was trying to hack into his computer.

Does/would windows/microsoft actually ever contact anyone like this?

I actually told him to suck a sacred cows dick.

Unknown name number, "from windows", and Indian accent are three really big tells. Good to remember them.

Had a similar call last year, was something along the lines of there being a virus on my computer that had called to talk me through removing. I kept him on the line for over an hour as I bullshitted that his 'advice' wasn't working...... Even went for a shit if I remember rightly......motherlickers....

Happened to me about two months ago. I hung up on him, went online searching for the MS tel.#, using the first result in the search. I got the same lousy connection, with what sounded like a phone bank. I even think it was the same guy. Hung up, found the correct # for MS and informed them of the scam, gave them the #. They new about it but took interest in the tel.#. Did a search just now and I see the first results in it are now the correct info and tel.#'s for MS. Bastages.
