Cold callers claiming to be from Microsoft

I am hearing more and more cases of the cold callers claiming to be from Microsoft and claiming that “you have errors on your Windows computer.” I blogged about these bogus callers  18 months ago, and it seems to be a growing trend.

Note: Microsoft do not cold call people! Never ever! Nor do they cold email people.

If you get one of these malicious calls, I urge you to hang up immediately and tell them nothing. Or tell them you know they are phoney, ask for their phone number, and google it, or call a techie. If you are in Pembrokeshire, call me for advice on 01646 602248.
