ALERT! — Microsoft Security – Phone Scam

by OwnerRPayer on Feb.20, 2013, under Viruses, Scams and Spam Oh MY!

Be on the alert for anyone calling you claiming to be from Microsoft’s Security partner company claiming that your operating system license has expired and your computer was sending error messages over the internet to Microsoft’s security system servers.

Microsoft does not contact customers unless the customer initiates it and has provided their contact information for a follow up. Nor do they monitor or detect malware remotely and make unsolicited telephone calls. Anyone claiming to be a Microsoft representative is not connected with Microsoft.
