Legitimacy of SAM notification email RRS feed

  • Question

  • I received an email notifying me that my organization have been selected for a SAM survey.  I'm trying to make sure this is a legitimate email.  The sender requested a call at my earliest convenience.  I called but the phone number given does not work.  To me that is a HUGE red email flag. 

    I reached out to my VAR and they are unaware that MS is requesting a SAM from me.  We have no problem doing a SAM if this is indeed a legitimate email request.  I know MS uses third parties for this, but the phone number on the email doesn't work and I am still waiting for a response to the email reply I sent to the sender of the SAM request notice.  

    Is there any way I can find out if Microsoft has actually requested a SAM for my organization?  Is there some valid phone number I can call or an email address I can mail and actually get a response from?

    Thank you!
