They got my details.  Number of Windows; Server number, my address.  They were friendly, talk to him, but some how I think it is is not right.  He said that he was from a company call serverteck.  Nitin; Dal;  Gentiles; Superb English.    They gave me a phone number 1-254-232 4302.  Does anyone else have a similar experience.  Flopzydad of peace.

Hello

It's a scam.

They can get your data from anywhere: phonebook, etc.

Either these so-called "Microsoft" Tech companies want to sell you a worthless software, or remote access to your computer to try to steal your credit card and bank information and also achieve an identity theft on you.

If you gave them remote access and if you make the Internet banking, you contact your bank, it would explain their and change passwords.

If you use your online credit card, can cancel you and get a new one issued to you.

And the only way that willl you know that you are free to them is to backup your data and do a clean install of your operating system.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

And Microsoft does not contact you unless YOU have made prior arrangements with them to do.

  • Received a call from someone claiming to be Microsoft Support

    Like many others, I received a call from a man who claims he was Microsoft, telling me that my computer was being hacked. I started to see through his bull quickly while I was talking to him, and after research I found confirmation that he indeed was a scam. However after reading the responses I am worrying whether or not I gave him access to my computer. As I was talking to him, I had on my computer, not to do what he told me or visit the page he was trying to direct me, but looking at the probability of this being a scam. My question is to get online while we were connected to the phone I made my system vulnerable? We have DSL and I was wondering if they already have my phone number could they hack into my computer or follow my ISP just connected. I think I'm fine, but now I'm getting paranoid who were able to carve in. It may just be a case of hypochondria computer. Any idea is appreciated. Thank you!

    You should be fine if you did not allow the con artist access to your computer.

    become very frequent lately. See

    In addition to their money get on your part to do anything of any value,
    If you leave them in your computer, which knows what losses they did are

    immediately:

    1 do a clean reinstall of Windows.

    2. change all of your passwords, especially banks or other
    financial sites.

  • Proxy is called from an application - how do I see who wants to connect?

    Greetings,

    recently, I get a pop up asking me to confirm my username from proxy & out of the blue to password. While it's perfectly ok when I use Internet Explorer or start another application that uses the web (because it is the policy of the company), it's a little scary to see the pop window for no reason apparent.

    How can I tell what app / service tries to connect to the web, so I can judge if it is ok?

    Ms and my daughter share an Apple ID. She has recently updated to IOS 9 and I am 7. I'm receiving his iMessages and receive phone calls from numbers that we share (not all of them are iPhones). What should we change the setting to stop what is happening? If it goes out his "call forwarding" that she does not get my texts to her. Help!

    As you are both sharing the same Apple ID you both will receive the same iMessages. The simplest solution would be to have yourself or your daughter, put in place a new Apple ID and this should solve the problem.

    Hi all

    I live in Switzerland, but am British and a mac user (no groans please) although I Mac office installed.
    In any case, tonight I received a call from an Asian woman of this phone number 00441865600154, the 1st time, I pressed the wrong button and cut them but they were recalled to work and she said she was from MS and my computer downloaded hacking software and had it flashed an alert at Microsoft. The line was very very bad and I've been cut called the number back and I just domestic type normal BT mail voice... scam or real?
    MS have the ability to track these things, and how they know my phone number to the House Switzerland?

    I am a little freaked by the present, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It is a scam, Microsoft does not call for end-users, because I don't think that they follow everyone. All calls more like this contempt please and offer the information for them. Total scam.

    They probably bought a list of phone numbers from somewhere or they get telephone directories in Europe. Not too sure about all other methods. That would be my guess.
