October 2021 - Microsoft Service Department Scams
By the end of September/early October, I've had a number of cold calls from (allegedly) Microsoft Service Departments.
Of course, these are scam calls as Microsoft will NEVER ring you ever, never mind out of the blue as these scammers do. All they want is either access to your computer so as to infect it, then charge you for repairing what damage they have caused, or they are after your bank details so as to scam you out of your savings.
NEVER ever allow a cold caller access to your computer, hang up and make a note of their number so you can block it or report it and don't answer them again.
Numbers used recently include 0012036326614, 0033492145211, 0013183981104 and 0031624052094
