I’ve seen reports of calls somewhat similar to that before, but it occurs to me that this might be an approach that gets revived with the arrival of Windows 8. I think I feel a blog coming on. :)

This call upset my friend so much and he doesn’t even have Windows 7 on his system, but his daughter does. I told him to NEVER trust a call like that because Microsoft doesn’t send out calls and that it was someone trying to get info from him. Thank goodness he hung up on this scammer before any damage was done. Thanks for the article, David. Warmly, Vicki
