Another scam I became aware of today..

Just had a call from a customer (home user with little knowledge of computers) saying that they were worried about a call they had just recieved. The caller (withheld number) who sounded Indian said he was from Microsoft error Reporting and that he had called to resolve her issue. She was asked to open up command prompt and type in various commands, one was prefetch... she got concerned about what was happening and said she did not want any help as she would call her Computer guy (me). He replied with "so after 20 minutes of trying to help you now do not want it, get lost"

Seems to be something akin to this http://www.digitaltoast.co.uk/supportonclick-systemrecure-scam

warn your friends and family, I'll let you know more of this one after visiting her later.
