I was wondering if anyone else is getting calls from someone that speaks very broken English that claims they are from a PC support company and have been monitoring my PC logs and notice that my PC has been slowing down. They wanted me to allow a "Microsoft Technician" to remote my PC and fix all my problems....lololo......I told the guy I was a PC Support tech and he hung up right away…….anyway, it sounds like a scam to get permission to remote a PC to either data mine the PC for personal information, or plant malware to send personal information to them.......anyone else get these calls?

I received a call yesterday. A person with an accent from a " far away place " started to tell me that my computer has been receiving warnings .................

As soon as I heard that, I hung up. The sad thing is, they probably get lots of people who will actually believe that crap.
