Criminals are a tricky bunch. One of their favorite scams targets those who
own a computer, but lack any real technical knowledge other than how to
browse the Web.

The scam starts with a call that warns of problems, and immediately offers
to connect you with a Microsoft support staffer. *Their goal is to remotely
control your system and install malware and rogue anti-Virus software.*
