These are fake calls and NOT from Microsoft, Microsoft will NEVER call you unless you contact them for help first.

I suggest that you have a look at this post to be more familier with these fraud:

Disregard it and do not give your information.

You have done the right thing in reporting them.

It is another Telemarketing Scam.
