Microsoft Phone Scam

Phone ScamThere has been a rash of calls to people in our area from individuals with heavy accents, claiming to be from Microsoft, and asking to log into your computer to fix a problem.

Microsoft will never call you to say your computer reported a problem.

If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from Microsoft, hang up immediately.

As part of the scam, these individuals will log in to your computer and show you a few error messages.   They will then ask for your credit card information so they can bill you to perform repairs.

So, if you receive a call from “Microsoft”, hang up immediately, do not let them remote into your computer, and do not give them your credit card information!


If you have any questions or concerns about your computer, please give us a call.
