Phone calls from Microsoft technechian teams to fix a viruis attach on my computor. Then treatening me to lock my computor, cause I won't go on my computor now. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Te phone# came from unknown 975 948 8859. I told them I wanted 1: name of the company phoning, they said Microsoft, 2:phone # 1 800 6024 1666 3:persons name Kevin Smith (senior tech)   That I would call them right back. No such # for my area, called from house phone and cell phone. I think they gave me too many numbers in the phone number, I repeated the number back to him 3 times.

  • It's probably a scam.

    Just ignore them.

    Don't click any links in emails, or install any software anyone tells you to do.
