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: Fake Microsoft license scam call by criminals phoning from India

This is a fake Microsoft computer support scam by criminals phoning from India and spoofing fake U.S. area code phone numbers. The scam involves telling you that your software or Windows license is expiring. Unless you previously contacted HP, Dell, or Microsoft about a very specific problem, ALL unsolicited phone calls that you receive from "HP Support", "Dell Support", or "Microsoft Support" are scams that either say your computer has a problem that requires you giving them your credit card, or your computer has a virus and they will tell you to use a browser to visit a cbttr.com or fastsupport.com website and enter a code that lets the scammer take control of your computer and then they install their own real ransomware virus that they then force you to give them your credit card number so they can charge thousands of dollars on your credit card. More than 99% of all North America phone scams originate from crowded phone rooms in India that run numerous fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day ranging from fake pharmacies to posing as fake IRS or Social Security officers collecting on "unpaid back taxes", fake bill collectors threatening you for overdue bills, pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty and credit card consolidation services, posing as Microsoft or HP to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem with your computer, falsely stating that they installed ransomware virus on your computer and you need to pay them money, etc, and the scammers try to obtain your credit card or Social Security number and personal information. Some scammers try to gain your trust by looking up the name associated with your phone number and asking for you by name when they call. Many India scammers phone you with an initial pre-recorded robotic female voice speaking English to disguise their foreign call center, but then you end up talking to an East Indian scammer when you take the bait and respond to the pre-recorded message. India scammers do not care about the U.S. National Do-Not-Call Registry and asking scammers not to call does not work. I love to toy with these scammers and keep them on the phone by pretending to be interested in their scam because many scam victims are the senile elderly. You do these scammers a favor by yelling at them and quickly hanging up. But you ruin their scams by slowly dragging them along on the phone call, pretending to be interested in their product or service, pretending that you are worried when they threaten you, giving them fake credit card numbers and fake personal information, and toying with them for at least 10 or 20 minutes to use up more of their time and energy so they have less time to deceive an elderly victim. Never trust any unsolicited call because they are mostly scams, and most scam calls originate from India. No other foreign country is infested with numerous noisy sweatshops filled with phone scam criminals.
