Someone calling from a Computer Shop. 
Scam Website:
Called me and asked me if I have a computer. I said yes, he said that Microsoft is having problems and they need to change some settings in my computer. Wanted me to send them my specs off my computer and even would like me to let them look threw my computer via computer to computer access. I asked this person, how do you know I have Microsoft software? he said, we have it on our records. I said that\'s funny, cause I have a mac. The guy hung up.

Scam I think? lol Some people would have fell for this. I am a computer tech, so I knew it was a scam right away. Microsoft does not call you.

I searched the # on my call display... It said..
