As a person who does tech support for many client, It depresses when I hear of ordinary people caught by this scam, please do not get caught by it, and don’t talk to anyone indian on a phone any longer, indian people have burnt theyre respect by the wilful abuse and criminality of a few indian call centres.
if a dialog comes up on your computer claiming theyre are multiple things wrong with your computer and that you need to call a microsoft technician, then please do not ring that number.
US chat support Rubbish deferred me to UK chat why does half their site seem complexly and crappily split between us based and uk based websites TOTAL shit get a grip SONY one or the other but dont fuck me about asking me to enter seven dozen personal details just to get access to a chat representative, just so that she can defer me to UK support ? and waste my fucking time, if i were to rate that support it would 0 stars out of 10. and how much do you pay these call centre people and website designers to be useless ?
