A recent Ponemon Institute study (in cooperation with PC Tools) challenges the myth that people who fall for scams are generally older. According to survey results, 18-25 year olds are among the groups that are more susceptible to online scams. Respondents also said that a free prize or free antivirus software were the most likely scam offers that they would respond to.

Someone with an East Indian accent that I could hardly understand just called me and said he was with Microsoft. I couldn't make out what he was going to do so I said I would call Microsoft and confirm the message and I hung up. My telephone showed a Seattle number but when I asked him if he was from Seattle he said no that he was in New York.
Was he trying to scam me?
He just called me again so I told him I was nervous about talking to him because I don't know who he is. He hung up on me.

One make sure your security is up to date , and windows updates are all up to date . If you are not sure delete it or ask friend for help dont trust anything .
I really like the idea it's an all=in-one program. All too often I fins vendor try double-up and sell you an antivirus and then an antimalware program too. It's also free! I really like that too. Jim

I know it may seem to you guys that you are being targeted specifically, but in reality, you're just a spammer's lucky email address.
