A lady rang me and said something was wrong with my computer in the last few days, told me to go onto run and type in ezentvwr. Luckily I hung up before i pressed it, then she started calling back but i just let it rung. Is this a scam?

Sounds like a scary movie. Does this mean you'll die in a few days?

It is a scam. Doesn't seem to get old though.
