Same thing. I received a recorded message to my cell phone about a Microsoft software and to call another number to resolve the issue. NOT! Where is the do not call list when you need them? That is a joke as well. I am on every list and still get these idiot calls. .

Couldn't hardly understand the message but they said something about trouble with my computer and if I didn't call this number they gave me that I wouldn't be able to use my computer. Do people actually fall for this??

Same as others described...call to my cell phone, never before have they left a message. I’m wondering if this is tie with the scammers using numbers similar to your own to get us to answer. I don’t answer but just a day ago, I actually FaceTimed the number calling which was similar to mine (facing my camera toward a door) and no one ever answered. Then today I got this scammer who left a message.

They left a message that unless we called them back at the number they left on our answering machine, our Microsoft software would “stop” working and we would not be able to use our computer. We did not call back, and will not call back.
