Microsoft Does Not Call You On The Phone - IT IS A SCAM so don't fall for it!!!!

Today someone called on the phone claiming to be from Microsoft saying they have lots of errors from me and someone is trying to hack into my system. First they had me look up my "event registry" and then wanted me to see for myself how many errors there are. Then they wanted me to run an 'ammyy' (just put www in front of it and dot com after it) which naturally I was suspicious. I looked up what it was while stalling them on the phone and come to find out it is to give them remote access to my computer. Naturally I didn't do it and told them they are scammers but while I was on the phone with them I could hear people in the background obviously on other phones saying the same thing to other people. Then I looked it up and Microsoft does not call you on the phone......this is a scam that a lot of people already fell for. (They get into your computer since you let them and then they get all your passwords and other information. Don't be another victim. Hang up the phone! 


  1. Great information.

    Also watch out for people calling saying they are from your credit card and your card has been stolen. I got message once... as I tried to call it back I kept getting a busy signal. That is when I realized that Citi bank has enough lines to forward you to a message system without a busy signal. I then called the number on my statement. The nice lady told me that in the future if I receive a call like this to say I will call them right back and call the number on my statement. Lots of scams out there.

  2. Thanks for the info. My real credit union did call once trying to see if someone else was using my card. It was automated and asked me to input my SSN. I hung up andcalled the # on the back of my credit card. By then, they had approved a transaction for closer to $400. I was not held responsible.
