New Scam?

Phone call lunchtime today - "Hello Mr (Rightname0. Understand you've been having computer problems, and your computer's running very slowly?"


If it was an attempted scam any idea how it would have proceeded?

Friend of mine had similar call asking her to switch PC on so they could check for security issues. Said they'd need to take control of her PC. On her caller display it came up as International number. She told them where to go!!

Looks as if it IS a new scam
