Bogus call from Microsoft

Received a call from a purported Microsoft technician telling me that one of my computers is dumping error messages to Microsoft, and we need his help in determining what bug/virus/etc. is infecting all our computers (9 on local home net).  He was from a 525 number.  Wanted me to go to www . pcsupport1 . webs . com and let them troubleshoot my system.  I don't know if he was legitimate, but I've trusted NAV since I was a pup.  Thanks.
