What is this scam? How do I determine if this is a scam?

Computer security scammers call about your broken, infected, and hacked computer. These scammers claim your computer is busted -- and only they can fix it. They'll ask for a huge payment for their services, and they may even keep charging you for a (completely bogus) monthly "security package." Sometimes, these computer security scammers will try to get remote access to your computer. Once they're in, they take your personal information, banking details, and whatever else they can grab. Computer security scammers love spoofing their numbers -- they will often appear to be calling from Microsoft or Apple! Be wary of anyone offering computer security services over the phone -- Apple and Microsoft will never call you out of the blue to troubleshoot a security problem.

Computer Security Scam
Caller Name: Stated they were from "Microsoft"

Upon Answering the call, I was not asked who they were reaching, nor stated that the call would be recorded. He stated my information would be compromised due to a glitch. I asked him to which account he was asking about, along with the name to which he was looking for. Both names and accounts were wrong. Be careful as they continue to keep you on the phone. My concern would be that they are pinging your location and could potentially access more information. BEWARE.
