They claimed to be from Microsoft Window and said that my computer had a virus.
SKYPE 1-786-664-7971 said his name was Gary ( had a accent like India) and calling because I was a registered windows user and my IP address showed I had malicious virus on the computer. Said my Norton 360 would not detect it when I asked him on that. Had me go to the RUN Box and type in eventvwr and said see the flags and errors. Then we went to the RUN Box again and he had me type in MSCONFIG and click on the Services tab and see the stopped status and these were the ones infected. Next a MS Engineer would come on and help me after I typed into the RUN Box www.supremofree.com and download the software - its free. I asked where they are and he said Grand something New York 11375. Told him I am 30 miles from MS at Redmond WA and why not a MS web site to which he had no answer. This is the third time they have tried this scam with me - last two times the calls were from California.
The caller did not say his name pronounced my name as soon as I picked up and went on to say that my computer system was being hacked with illegal activity I asked what he was talking about and he hung up on me I tried to call back and got a message saying that number had been reported as a fraud
asked personal information, had name, address,phone number, wanted month and day of birth, had year. i had applied for life insurance policy and he said i could receive 3x more insurance from them,with more information. i told him to call back in an hour because i could not understand him. no call
