Microsoft Calling…NOT!

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.

Businessman With Computer Virus Alert“We need to install a program on your machine to remove the virus. Ok?”

“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.
