Buyer beware, especially of robo-calls

A reader sends along some cautionary advice on those disturbing robo-calls that seem too good to be true. (They aren't, of course.)  He referred to one in which the caller, in a foreign sounding voice, identified himself as representing Microsoft Security.  

"Several of our neighbors have gotten these calls," he wrote. "These people ask for passwords etc.  Total scam.   Our next-door neighbor bit on this scam yesterday and now her computer is is locked up and credit cards are at risk."

Fair warning.
