Phone Scam for your Computer!

Be weary of receiving phone calls from a Microsoft Service Center or similar name, claiming they are calling you to help you remove viruses from your computer.  This is likely a scam to take money or even your identity from you.

So far, the callers seem to always call with an accent and try to get you to go to websites to remove the viruses and want to charge you a fee for it using a credit card.

Mostly this scam appears to be attacking UK folks, but phone calls have started hitting US customers and even our own Widomaker Customers.

If you receive such a phone call, do not fall for it.  If you can, record the call or if you can get any information, take it and report it to the authorities. Hang up the phone.

It may be time to decide whether you should upgrade your exisiting computer or buy a new computer. Visit this page for more details and information.
