When someone from India cold calls you and says you have a problem with your "dextop" computer. They use scare tactics, such as the Event Viewer (eventvwr) and the Tree command in Command Prompt to try and convince you that you have a "wirus" on your "dextop." They ask you to pay a large sum of money for the "fixes," and if you don't pay, they try to put syskey on your computer, which locks you out of your computer. Popular topic for Youtubers and pranksters.
