Scam attempt

SIR - With reference to the article on the computer scam in this week’s paper.

I, too, have received phone calls from a foreign gentleman purporting to be from MS technical support. Likewise, he wanted information to access my computer to rectify so-called faults MS had identified remotely.

He called a number of times until, presumably, he realised I was not going to play the game.
