Awesun Download

A few moments ago got a call that Caller ID said was from Comcast (spoofed maybe?) that said he was a Comcast tech calling to tell me I had connectivity issues with the internet. (I've noticed no such problem, been surfing just fine.) He had me go online to speedtest.com which told me I have pretty good download speed; he says "Oh, no that's incorrect; you're not getting anywhere near that speed so I want you to go to awesun.com and download their software." WTH?? I told him that I don't download much without my techie's approval first and hung up. Anybody else? Think it's a scam or am I being too cautious?

Scam. That’s a remote desktop you were being asked to download.

FOR SURE !! I couldn't agree more with Andrew !! First they get you to install that. Then they try to remote in to your computer and have their way with it.
