According to investigators, the callers say they're with Microsoft and need to alert people about malicious activity on their computers. The callers then ask for personal information and access to your computer in order to install a firewall, which they say would fix the problem. If you get a call like this, do not give out any personal info.
Instead, hang up and report the call to the authorities.
