“secure-code-zrb98dkekld.xyz” “0800 802 1145” scam

By the time I reached this scam the original advert page had been taken down but here is some of the text it used to contain:

Support Home
Technical Support
0800 802 1145
Security Help Page
PROBLEMS:

Popup ads are ENABLED, which may result in a slow loading computer. This could be because of outdated antivirus software creating other security vulnerabilities that could expose personal information (including photos, passwords, credit card details, etc.) You may also have system errors, registry problems, too many processes running, multiple programs launching at startup, or memory that is severely fragmented.

Support agents are currently AVAILABLE.

Why Am I Seeing This?

Popup ads are ENABLED likely because of outdated antivirus software. Your slow computer could also be a result of misconfigured system settings that require adjusting, heavy file fragmentation due to hard drives not being defragmented on a regular basis, presence of invalid or corrupt entries in the registry that prevents applications or system components from operating properly.

Slow web browsing, downloads and web call interruptions on a supposedly high-speed connection are usually caused by incorrect network settings.
Frequently Asked Questions:

“Do you offer support for my computer?”
YES! Your computer and the operating system are supported.

“Are you associated directly with Microsoft?”
Just like those “Geeks” that service your favorite Microsoft products at some big electronics stores, we are proud to say that we are an independent support company, offering a variety of software protection and consulting products. But because we don’t rent expensive retail space, we’re able to offer you similar services at a much lower cost. And while we are a 3rd party support firm that is not directly associated with Microsoft, our technicians are trained to understand their products and help you get your PC performing at its best.

The number they want you to call is a UK number, 0800 802 1145, aka. 08008021145 or +448008021145.

Upon calling I got the same phone system and people, who also confirmed the same company name, as the scam I came across a couple of days ago.
