SCAM ALERT: Caller from 619-555-0150, Windows Technical Department

At 3:34 PM Central Time on Wednesday, 22 July 2015, someone claiming to be with the Windows Technical Department was calling people in an attempt to gain access to computers presumably for the purpose of, installing malware, stealing passwords, and getting credit card information. The caller had a strong Indian accent, and claimed to be calling from California.

The caller claimed that they had been monitoring the user’s computer and that for two weeks some viruses were showing up.

If you receive a call from someone saying they are with Microsoft, or claiming to be with Windows, or with the Windows Technical Department, don’t interact with them. Hang up immediately.
