Scam Alert: Calls from Microsoft

Back to News

Our owner, Karla Carson, received a call at her home from "William from Windows Services Center on behalf of Microsoft".  William (with a heavy foreign accent) said he needed to connect to Karla's computer to fix some errors that they were receiving from her computer.   Karla kept him on the phone and requested a location and phone number.  This is likely fake information, but it was reported to the police.  

 

Please note, Microsoft will NOT initiate calls to fix your computer, EVER!  This is a scam and should be treated as such.  If you can try to get a phone number or some other identifying information, please pass the date, time and info to your local police department.
