I WAS SCAMMED YESTERDAY BY A FOREIGN MAN CLAIMING TO BE MICROSOFT TECH SUPPORT SUPERVISOR. HE SAID I HAVE ALOT OF MALWARE ON MY COMPUTER AND IT IS READY TO CRASH.
HIS PHONE NO.. IS 1-800-236-5752. AND HE SHOULD BE ARRESTED. I only fell for it because my husband recently installed Microsoft office and he called tech support. After this scam artist and identity stealer stole all the information on my computer, I called the real Microsoft tech support and they told me they never call people about a malware problem. The scam artist is still using this toll free number today, I checked. I reported this to the FTC, but don't know if they will do anything. Be careful!
I was scammed yesterday by an imposter posing as a Microsoft Tech Support person. He had a foreign accent and he compromised all the information on my computer. Microsoft never calls anyone to tell them they have malware on their computer. The scammer is still at this phone no. 1-800-236-5752. When the phone is finally answered, it is by this scammer who is trying to steal your identity. I reported it to the FTC, but I don't know if they will do anything about it. Call and you will be connected with this foreign scammer. He should be taught a lesson. He answers the phone as Microsoft, but it's not the company Microsoft.
