I have received numerous calls from a company called Quantum PC support telling me I have a problem with my computer that they can help me with. I remember reading in the Guardian about this with a suggestion to waste their time â€“ at least then they are not contacting someone else. The first time they realised I was a time waster and rang off quickly. The next time I kept them on the line for half an hour, and got a phone number out of them. Is it a similar racket? DD, Torquay
A few weeks ago we warned about the Windows scam that sees callers from India ringing up to tell you\'ve got a problem with your computer. They then diagnose it remotely and sell you their services for a fee, or worse. We have had several letters since from readers complaining it is widespread. We rang Quantum PC Support this week, and it is a similar racket. Keep wasting their time. Microsoft says it will never call you up unsolicited.
