Some good news for people who have received these scam calls.
A man who ran a Microsoft computer scam tricking people into paying for free anti-virus software has received a suspended four-month jail sentence.
About time, the emotional distress it causes people and the potential damage.. unthinkable. We’ve received a few over the years, and mostly driven off when they are asked about our missing license enquiries or kits, Probably the same responses we’d get from official sources anyway.

On a side note, We don’t support such behaviour. Nor install software without explaining what it is/does or the benefits without permission.
Our tool-kit contains mostly non-install mal-ware/virus scanners, some of which can be installed to make customers life’s easier later on by providing an ability to scan for and remove such things later.
We don’t trust remote access either, as it never seems to work properly with these fenland connections.
