I just got off the phone with a person who said they were with Microsoft Support. “We are getting messages that there is a dangerous virus on your computer and are calling to help you remove it. OK?”
“Sure,” I said.
“Sure,” I said, “I need to call you back, though. What’s your number?”
“You cannot call us back, because this is support,” she said.
“I cannot call you back because this is a fraud. My company is a Microsoft Partner…” Click.
Bye. Did you really think I would fall for that?
If you’re reading this, don’t fall for it either. Microsoft doesn’t call.
