‘Microsoft support centre’ scam continues, and takes turn for worse

The scam whereby people in Indian call centres ring up and insist that they are calling from “Microsoft Windows Support” and that they have been alerted – by Microsoft, or your ISP – that “your computer is running slowly because of viruses” – is still going on.And they’re still charging people for their fake “help”, and people are still falling for it: I get a few emails a week confirming it (and that of course is only the people who realise they’ve been had). If you need confirmation, Microsoft’s Answers system is stuffed with people asking about it.
