Suspicious phone call supposedly from Windows Tech Center, Jacksonville, FL RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just received a phone call from a person purporting to be from the Windows Technical Center, Jacksonvill, FL (888-970-4250) who said that they have noted a security issue with my computer.  This person asked me to open the run command line and bring up the windows event viewer (eventvwr).  Prior to opening up windows event viewer I asked for verification of this person's credentials and he gave me the information above, and a name that I did not write down.

    The process appeared to be somewhat suspicious and I said that I would need to verify this person and organization and call back the toll free number before I went any further.

    I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and can offer any advice....
