"how?" via remote access. it's built into your microsoft operating system. i turn it off when i configuring my system when i get new computer or operating system.

there have been recent newspaper & tv news articles reporting this. it is a group of individuals working from India or Pakistan, together or seperately. the worst part is that a few people do actually fall for this so obvious scam. microsoft does not call it's computer software clients. ever.
