I have received a nasty/ stupid telephone call advising me that my desktop computer is infected with virus !!. The caller purported to be from " windows service" not Microsoft. My wife who answered the call initially was taken in. The caller wanted me to switch on my machine and he will show me where the virus is.!!
I do not know what one must do in such circumstances, calling the police is pointless.
Needless to say I checked my machine ( full acan- nearly 5 hours) and found nothing ( microsoft security essential). Has anybody received similar calls and what can one do about it??
