Anyone ever received one of these phonecalls (used to be from Microsoft, but now from some other IT company) stating they've surveyed your suburb & detected a large number of computer viruses in the area, & would like to check your computer? They ask how long it takes for your PC to boot up & say that anything over 10 seconds is likely to be infected. They then want you to go into your system to check...but I've never let it go further than that to see what happens. They say they are an Aussie company (even though my caller ID says Overseas, and ALWAYS an Indian accent). I got a few from 'Microsoft' a couple of months ago but now it seems the scammers have a new twist on an old theme. I can only assume they still want remote access, download programs, fleece you or whatever. I think my problem is that I've never hung up straight away (I've always kept them on the line & had some fun) so now my phone is seen as 'active' & possible bait! I think I'll try & get as much info off the next one so I can report it to scam watch.
