Just received a call on my residential line and this is a dumb scammer. I supposed he should be a Indian from India due to his accent and told me he is calling from Microsoft. And they had been receiving messages from my Windows and the contents of the messages contains traces of malware and spyware and they got my residential number from my ISP which is Singtel and he is here to help me solve the problems. Asked me to power on my computer and he will guide me step by step to solve the problems.
So I questioned him which Windows version are you talking about cos I got more than 1 computer and he think for awhile and told me Windows 7. Nice try! I don't even use Windows 7 and I told him sorry I don't use windows 7 but windows vista so he was "ya, windows 7 and windows vista are the same". So I screwed him telling him they r different and he still can answer me "ya, I know" but he was damn persistent telling me how serious the problems were and my computer could malfunction and insist that I turn on the computer.
Damn irritating and so I told him "sorry my laptop HDD is dead so there's no way I can turn on the computer for you and therefore i don't need or want your help, Bye" and slammed down the phone. Wasted 5min of my time.
After that he still called twice but I don't want to pick up the call. So everyone out there just take note, you or your friends might receive this call or similar tactic used.
Anyway, the number is 6076259911 and from Malaysia JB after I confirmed with my friend cos after the missed call, I received a alert with the number on my mobile phone.
