Windows 7: Internet security department

Internet security department

I have been receiving phone calls from a person stating they are 35 Microsoft system engineers working on Internet Security. They claim they have been receiving warning messages from my Computer Network and try to pump me for info on my system and network equipment ! They say they are in San Jose. I cannot get a return phone number from them. Tried contacting MS to no avail. A person by the name of Hannah Kusung called last time. Has anybody else in this forum been getting these type of phone calls? How do I stop them, caller ID is spoofed so blocking does not work.

Thanks

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Yes, lots of people get these types of calls. You could try telling the callers that your computer is running Ubuntu or Linux Mint. Perhaps they will update whatever database you are in and the calls might stop. You might still get calls from other groups that use other databases. It is a common scam.
