There have been many bogus cold calls targeting people stating they are from Microsoft or Windows and they state, they claim the computer owned by the person or persons have either connected to certain websites or become infected with viruses and they are pressured by rude and sometimes intimidated to allow remote access to the computer / laptop.
These calls are fraudsters and completely fake, they pressurise and ultimately pressured into paying for a service they did not require.
