Microsoft Telephone Scam – Don’t Fall For It!

Microsoft Telephone Scam – Don’t Fall For It!

I recently had a telephone call from a gentleman with an asian accent telling me that he was from Microsoft and I had a virus on my computer which he would fix…

We have had several jobs lately as a result of this scam whereby people have been taken in and as a result allowed these scammers access to their computers and banking details.

Microsoft would never phone you at home or work to inform you of a problem with your machine – hang up on these spammers and never allow them access to your computer.  If you do the following can happen:-

  • They can access all information including documents on your computer
  • They can track your typing and obtain your passwords, credit card numbers etc
  • They can load vicious malware on your PC or Laptop and send viruses to everyone on your email contact list
  • They can lock you out of your computer and damage or erase its contents.

This scam is happening worldwide – and there is an easy fix – just hang up the phone!
