2015 03 20 Microsoft Scam Phone Calls Defeated

Today one of my clients received a cold call from someone claiming to be from Microsoft, that there was a problem with their computer, but they can connect to their computer from remote to fix the problem – for fee, of course.

My client did exactly the right thing.  She hung up then let me know immediately.  That’s all it takes to be safe.  Hang up and DO NOT give these people any information or access to your computers!

Microsoft doesn’t make cold calls to fix people’s computers.  They just don’t.  The beauty of a computer management service like mine is that regular, everyday people can be reasonably confident these scam callers are full of it.

An older friend of mine fell for this scam…twice!  Unfortunately the scammers prey upon older folks and are often successful.

Be aware!
