Scam warning regarding alleged phone calls from Microsoft/Windows
Editor’s note: The following was sent as an e-mail to Frank Schier, editor and publisher. It is reprinted here as a Letter to the Editor.
If you receive a phone call from a guy or a girl claiming they are from Microsoft or Windows, and they tell you your computer is sending them errors, do not talk to them. They are not who they say they are. This crazy guy calls me about 10 minutes ago and said my computer was sending Microsoft errors and then told me to enter a bunch of info in so he could fix it. LOL, I replied, “Sir, I don’t think Microsoft is in the habit of calling homes and telling them they have errors or viruses.” He then said, “Mr. Marinaro, I am not going to waste any more time with you,” and hung up.
The reason for my concern is there are a lot of people out there who would not know better. If I had let him have his way, he could have easily gone through and stolen info, bank, financials, etc.
