New Microsoft Phone Scam Found! – 0800 0418 221
Yes, We are back with a new Mircosoft related scam currently happening across the UK. Most scams stay similar due to the method that the scammers get your money or attempt to gain your trust by using big names and making your feel panic or rushed in order to socially trick you into trusting them.
Operator: Your Microsoft product keys have expired and all Microsoft services how been stopped on your computer. To renew them please press 1 or Call us on 0800 0418 221.
So The Sammers Script above starts by using the big name of Microsoft to trick the victim then piles on the press telling the victim that their product keys have expired and that all Microsoft products and software services are not stopped this makes the victim panic and rush in to it without think, “Hay wait Microsofts product keys don’t expire”. The scammer goes on to try to sell you a NEW product key you don’t need or want if you know.
Simple if you get a phone call with the caller stay they are from Microsoft simply put the phone down. I have never known a person that doesn’t work for Microsoft or have a business interest or agreement with them to get a phone call from them.
