phone call from Microsoft? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I received a phone call from a person with a heavy accent claiming to be from Microsoft calling to inform me that my computer IP address was sending malicious code indicating that my PC was under attack and that they could not contact me via email because that was an invasion of privacy. When I indicated this sounded like a scam the caller immediately hung up. There was no caller ID

    Has anyone else received calls such as this? Am I correct that this is indeed some sort of scam?
