    Thanks for sharing that information. That call you received is known as the Microsoft scam call. My sister also got a call like that from 206-456-0661 and it was exactly the same script. She was told there’s virus on her computer and she had to get it fixed right away. Well, she knew about the scam prior to the call so she turned to her computer and looked up the phone number. And this page came up. Wow!

    That scammer should have done a little research so he’d learn that everybody knows about him already.
