I have just received a telephone call from a foreign sounding person to say that my computer is infected, and that they are Microsoft qualified engineers to help me to fix my computer and asked me to turn my computer on and they would talk me through what the problem is and how to fix it, I said to them that I was a qualified Microsoft engineer and they immediately put the phone down, the telephone number of the person who called me is 02030266482 , I am not a Microsoft engineer, so I thought I would contact you to let you know of the scam.
