Another Number To Block

866 872 8023

Microsoft Technical Support calling to renew my Windows 10 key on my voicemail.  When I called back, East Indian woman.  Aren't there enough jobs there undercutting American workers in HP contractors?

I've read that they have taken over Microsoft. It's now an Indian company in all but the paperwork.

That sure sounds like a scam to me. Why would Microsoft contact you out of the blue?

They do not. Microsoft even has a page for you to report these frauds. A friend received such a call and was part way through letting them into her laptop when I pulled the connection before he could inject the virus and told the East Indian on the phone to get a real job.

A long time ago I told fellow workers at Boeing that they needed to re-instate the Spanish Inquisition for the guy/gal who caused half the facilities computers to get infected via the email system. What was the story the other day, some government worker looking at Porn on-line infected the entire US Geological Survey Network

James: Yes someone made a virus developer very rich at the expenses of the Geologic Survey. I hope they bill him for cleanup.
