A phone call from 02034091756
They knew my name and called on Friday.
Said they're from Microsoft and my PC is affected by viruses, had a terrible accent.
I wouldn't care in case it was just a cold call,
but they had my personal data and address.
Found this on Google here, has anyone else received this spam (if it's really is spam :confused::confused:)?

I never even answer phone numbers that I don't recognise now. If I don't know them it's unlikely that I will ever want to and chances are that it will be a scam. Don't be surprised that others know quite a bit about you, your info is spread all around the world. :nod:

Standard thing to be honest. Best thing to do is to either block the number on your mobile or, if you still use one, replace your landline with one of the BT spam blocking phones, like this.


Don't waste your time with the likes of the TPS, these Indian scammers don't even know what it is never mind pay any attention to it! ;)
