Anyone get those calls from "Microsoft"

Just had a call someone pretending to be from Microsoft, although I think he said Windows which wouldn't make sense anyway. He wanted me to go into My Computer and try to open Manage or something like that but then I said I couldn't find it and that I had other folders that had various pornographic names knowing that this was fake. He then asked me if I had naked pictures of my daughter.........don't know if I should be even more disturbed than normal. Anyone ever get these calls?

I've gotten calls from "people from large software companies", but never one asking if I had pornographic pictures of my children. If I were you any had gotten that call I would've:
a) called the cops on the creep
b) jumped through the phone and taken care of the creep myself

Sounds like a prank call or a scam. I wouldn't be too worried. Definitely report them if they call again.

If you had illegal stuff on your computer, you'd be in hand-cuffs and on the 6 o'clock news before anyone called you.

I had someone call my mom and say they were from Microsoft and they needed some information. I walked in when she was on the phone and promptly made her hang that shit up.

Well after I named off some rather outrageous files I think he knew I was screwing with him, like I said I have had these calls before but that was for sure a "what the shit" moment. He started going on about some new computer virus that he would have to help me with, I'm curious if some people actually believe that these callers are actually from Microsoft looking to "help" people
