Microsoft never calls any one you must have got pop calls or spammer calling to earn money from you with showing fake and scare your computer is hacked.
No one from either Microsoft or from any reputable Microsoft partner will call you and tell you there are problems with your computer. They call you only if you have initiated a support incident and have requested or agreed to a call-back to resolve the issue.
