    I received a voicemail message on my phone from an "indian" speaking person stating that he was calling from Microsoft about charging my personal bank account $299 and it I wanted my money back, to call their number. So I did, the person said they were calling from Mocrosoft, at 1 Microsoft Road in Redmond, WA and that they had been providing our computer's operating system. When I asked the person what name did they have associated with my phone number, they hung up. You could here "thousands" of people on the phone in the background. I am assuming, like all the other "indian" company scammers, this is also a scam. I am going to notify my bank as well.

    May I offer you a suggestion: If you have any emails from the "scammer" gather them and make sure your credit card company knows about them. I was luckily able to recoup my payment. Good Luck.
