Windows Support Scam Alert

Filed under: Self Defense Infomation — peppereyes @ 6:35 PM

Twice Now I’ve received a phone call from some person with a foreign accent claiming to be from Windows Support and 020414_1627_BetterBusin1.jpgwanted to tell me that someone was trying to hack my computer.

OK…I’ve worked in IT for over 3 decades, and I know the following

  1. Microsoft does not monitor the computers that have windows installed.
  2. Windows comes installed with a firewall and a modicum of protection.
  3. Microsoft routinely updates itself.
  4. I have a firewall and anti-virus/malware software installed, that I keep updated and use on a scheduled basis.
  5. THIS IS A SCAM

Apparently a will known one.  Microsoft has information on it’s site that you can find by searching for Microsoft Tech Support Scam (http://www.microsoft.com/security/online-privacy/avoid-phone-scams.aspx)
