Microsoft License Scam?

Folks, a reader wrote and asked me about a phone call they received. The (female) caller claimed to be from Microsoft, and warned the reader that their “Windows license had expired”…

This is a scam. Don’t fall for it. Hang up. And, please, warn your friends and family. As this ‘thread’ says, Microsoft would not call you unsolicited. Nor would they know if any errors existed on your computer.

The article has good information on scams and what you can do. Again, click here to read more.

And thank you Dear Reader for bringing this to my attention.
