Scam phone call from Microsoft?

Post by agroot » Fri Feb 19, 2021 4:01 pm

Is this new? Had some call that told me they're Microsoft and my computer has been hacked. The guy feels quite real and spent several minutes explaining how it happened ..

I hung up of course, since my windows was bought from g2deal and they surely don't have any phone number :D

It's not. They have been doing it a long time.

Not only that, no-one from Microsoft will be calling you even if your Windows PC was hacked.
