Fake 'Support' Call Centre Calls - A New Scam?

Recently a new scam has emerged, involving calls from fake call centres, and pretending to be from Your ISP/Windows/Microsoft.

The scam uses social engineering to trick users over the phone into believing they are infected, then tries to get them to download fake/rogue software as well as connect to a remotte 'support' session and charge them money for the software.

You can read more information about this scam on the Sophos Security Blog:
