Nuisance fake Microsoft calls lead to data loss and big fees
We have had numerous reports from customers recently that have received phone calls from scammers claiming to be from Microsoft. The caller claims that they have found security problems or faults with your PC and that they can help fix it. They will offer to remotely access your computer to show you the problem, but once access is gained they will demand money. If payment is refused, the caller remotely deletes files from your PC or creates a password to lock you out of accessing your own computer.
Microsoft will never contact you in this way. If you receive a call claiming to be from Microsoft, do not pay any money and do not allow remote access to your computer.
If you or someone you know have fallen victim to this scam, or you want more information – just give us a call and we will be happy to help.
