I'm sorry about the issue. That is definitely a scam. No support company or Microsoft would ever call you for any computer support (you would call them first if you need computer support.) This is usually a scam in order to get your money. Please always ignore any phone call that you do not know or that you are not expecting.

Do you have any further question? And/or do you have any computer issue?
