About a hour ago I received a call from a suspicious phone number. They explained that they had received an alert from my PC and needed to gain access to correct the problem before my PC was "downloaded" which was getting ready to start in a few minutes. I played along and they walked me to the event viewer where they proceeded to ask me to open the Administrative Events and asked me to see if there were any warnings or errors because this was supposed to show me that I was indeed already infected and they were there to help. At this point the phone was passed to another person on their end that didn't speak with as heavy an accent and then they muffled the phone and began to argue, at which time I hung up. After I hung up they called back a couple of minutes later but I didn't bother to answer.
My question is, now that I have this number whats the chance that it was spoofed, the number is from Saint Paul, Minnesota area. Also, has anyone come across this before and what was it they were going to ask me to do next to try and access my PC? I might be able to put something in place to lock out any other attempts. I wish so bad I had kept them on the line longer.
As an update, not much of an edit, I think what I found was in the second answer with the honey pot idea. Thank you Andre for the suggestion.
