Sounds like a very well known scam,by Windows do you mean Microsoft?They will not ring you.

It is a scam. Also best not to show your e-mail address for all and sundry to see.

Fruit Bat /\0/\ - Regrettably not well known enough. I know a person who I normally regard as pretty switched on who fell for it. He admitted he felt a fool afterwards.

As compumac says, do not show your email address. Best to change your user name to something else.
