Read this on another forum, anyone know more about this? And how the hell do they find you and your product ID?

Get called by Indians claiming to be from Microsoft
They tell me that they were alerted that my system was infected and in the control of a hacker
They have me check the system log and look for errors and read out my product ID as proof (it was 90% correct)
They want me to log in to a website with a code they gave me so that their engineers can clean my PC


Another poster:

I got this call, but they claimed to be from "Windows", not Microsoft. They said that they detected a self-replicating malware installed on my system that couldn't be detected by any antivirus app in existence. And then tried to talk me into giving them remote access.
