Anybody else getting scammed by fake telemarketers?

I would like to hear from anyone who recently received a call from anyone claiming to be a Microsoft technician. They say your computer is badly infected and about to crash, then offer to wipe the computer clean and install an internet security program for $149 which will prevent further problems.

There are now 469 complaints on (a reverse cell phone site) about these scammers, who appear to be from India and may actually be in Lynwood, according to their cell phone number. They phone repeatedly, are often rude and belligerent, and need to be stopped. If you’ve been scammed, let’s compare notes and see what we can do about it. I’m at (360) 249-5364.
