The caller told me my PC was affecting the internet and needed fixing, and when I asked if he used to work at Microsoft, he got angry and threatened to cut off my internet connection.
If someone is not aware of this they could be scared into letting him onto their PC, if they think their internet connection can be cut off. This then allows the caller access to your PC and they will demand money to fix it.
Never let anyone get access to your computer when they ring up
I told him it was great that I was breaking the internet and he could cut me off he wanted to and put the phone down. He obviously didn’t or you would not be reading this now.
Pass this on to warn others we may have a new wave of telephone scams. Fore-warned is fore-armed.
