Beware of Microsoft phone Scam that is being run from India!
We’ve recently received a couple of phone calls from our customers asking us about a strange phone call they received.
The Scam phone caller introduces himself as an employee of Microsoft – “Hello, I’m from Microsoft… (with Indian accent). He will tell you that there is a serious virus problem with your computer which needs to be fixed. He then asks for access to your computer so he can fix the issues.
We can confirm this is 100% Microsoft phone Scam which has already occurred in the past. (See the Guardian post about Microsoft phone call Scam).
If you receive such phone call in the future please
DO NOT PROVIDE ANY DETAILS OR ACCESS TO YOUR COMPUTER and remember that Microsoft doesn’t call its customers to repair their PCs.
