I was using my laptop as always while connected to the internet. I saw a pop up message saying my computer is connected to the other IP address. I ignored that pop up message as I always use my modem. I then received a message saying I must call 021 8135866. I called this number and spoke to the person by the name of Ryan Wilson. This person claimed to be working for Microsoft and said my computer is about to crash I must provide my details in order to assist me. I did give them while under the impression that they were legitimate Microsoft personnel. Soon after that my computer could not open and crashed. I then contacted the very same people they said I need to deposit money in order to fix my computer. I could not deposit the money since I had a feeling that something was not sounding right with this. I then searched for Microsoft details on website. I called them in Gauteng they said that number is not for Microsoft but for scamers.
