Colour at last.............
Anyway, I told the man I knew it was a scam and put the phone down, then called Microsoft. As it happens, in India. But at least I know it was Microsoft. The lady I spoke to said it was a definite scam and she took all details and told me that Microsoft will NEVER call anyone direct. Also, she gave me the details of a website here in the UK Action Fraud and asked me to call and report it. So I did. The really helpful man said that this is a very busy and well known scam and took all the details to add it to the police computer. The scammers apparently target areas, so local people, be aware, and please warn your neighbours and friends. Just tell the "man from Microsoft" that you are aware of the scam and put the phone down. There is nothing wrong with your computer.
I get SO MAD when I hear of scams and of people losing their money. Bigger screech.
I am quite sure I was going to write something edifying today. However, my brain has been scrambled by the fury, so it is probably best to report back in later when I have done a lap or 2 of the garden. I hope your Thursday is a happy one!
