I just got a telephone call from a woman claiming she was from Microsoft and that my PC was sending all kinds of error messages and therefore had a nasty virus. The phone connection was poor, so she repeated her script twice. She wanted me to turn on my PC, and at that moment, I informed her that I was the babysitter and that she should give me her name, phone number, and email and I would have the owner of the PC contact her when she returns.
She gave me all this info and her email was a gmail - I'm sure Microsoft uses gmail!!!
Next I tried to contact Microsoft to inform them of the scam, but both by phone or email I could not figure out how to jump through all their hoops. So, friends, be warned.
best wishes from
