    Foreign male voice said he was phoning from Microsoft about my computer - he wasn't very good at disguising the fact that he was in the first stages of attempting to defraud. I made it clear that I understood his intentions and hung up.

    I got a call from this number a short while ago. Claimed to be from Microsoft. I knew it was a scam and made it obvious that I knew. The caller then became abusive and said that they were going to block my computer because it had been used to set up a porn site and that he was going to report me and I would go to prison.
