    I also received this exact message in Virginia. Fortunately I did not call. There are however several other sites that pop up when you search this number on the internet that appear to legitimize this number. Thanks for the warning.

    I received the exact message you posted above. I called this number yesterday and was asked to call back when I was home so that I could have access to my laptop. I was told my account would be temporarily canceled. I thought it was a bit strange and I'm glad I looked it up! Thank you for this information/warning!!
