Scam phonecalls trying to convince you to install software to 'repair' your
windows computer are on the rise. So I was waiting for 'my' first call and
the first ones happened today. It was indeed number
0014259053074 (or +1-425-905-3074 / 425-905-3074)
which according to some google searches is a number in Everett, Washington.
Nobody was available to be scammed so the call went to voicemail where the
scammer wasn't interested to leave a message.
Google searches suggest this caller-id is used a lot in scam calls to numbers
in the Netherlands. Don't fall for them.
The scammer called back, told she was from something 'the global support
organisation for microsoft windows' and was confused about the part of
the day it was, stating she called from the UK but sounding like it was
from India with US caller-ID and was surprised the person who answered
wasn't the 'owner of a windows computer'.
