Victim Location 92124
Type of a scam Tech Support
Got a call from 518-794-2471. It was a recorded message saying that "if you are using Microsoft Windows in your computer, then press 1 now to speak to our security team". I pressed 1 and a guy with an Indian accent called me on 07/19/18 to say there was a problem with my Microsoft Office and someone had hacked it. I told the guy my computer was off (I was at work), and that I could not open my computer at the moment. He insistently told me to turn on my computer and I said I did not have my computer with me. Then I said if that was a legitimate call, that I should receive an email from Microsoft right at that moment letting me know of the issue. He asked me what my email was and I hung up on him. After looking up his phone number on the web, many people has reported this scammer. I am just glad that the phone call did not go any further than this.
