Was just told my Windows Key is about to Expire (Scam)



and I must call them at (716) 313-1229 to get this fixed!

They say its Microsoft Headquarters but I thought that was Seattle?

This says Buffalo, if anybody would like to call and tell them its wrong to steal I'm sure they will thank you in the future!



I've made a new friend over the several callbacks I've made

1. They've diversified into Macs as well.

I got a call a few weeks ago about our iPads and Apple Laptops causing havoc on t'internet, or something like that with a website and phone number to call. Indian accent (of course), and apparently unaware that we don't have any Apple devices in the house.

BTW, Microsoft is in Redmond, WA, which would be 425 area code. Of course, that means nothing as caller ID is easy enough to spoof.

2. Answering the call and/or calling them

just gives them more working numbers to harass or sell. If I don't recognize a caller, I don't answer, even if it's a local area code. Legitimate callers will leave a message.

3. I get stuff like this every once in a while. One time my computer froze and a message came on from

"a windows rep" saying you computer is in trouble with malware. You must call Windows so that we can repair it.. I rebooted my computer and a BSOD came up. I then rebooted again and all was fine. I knew I had no malware. I run antimalwarebytes on all my machines. They catch everything, but it uses a lot of memory.

5. I get a different message. It says my computer has been attacked and malware has been downloaded

and I have to call Microsoft at an 888 area code phone number.

Control-Alt-Delete is how I deal with it. Task Manager is the only way to shut it down.

7. I bet they would. Like the woman who was wanting me to help her get her dead

husband's money out of somewhere (some Eastern Bloc country if I recall correctly). She was going to give it to me rather than see some really bad rabbits get their hands on it. That is, after I coughed up my address, SSN, and the number of the bank account that I wanted the money to be deposited in.

9. I don't think so. I should have saved it but since I was passing on her offer I deleted it

with all the porn spam I get for some damn reason.

Anyway, I was being offered a fortune by a woman, recently widowed, and who - out of the goodness of her heart - chose me to be the lucky recipient of millions because she knew I would put it to 'good' use. Not like those evil bastids who were trying to cheat her out of her dead husband's money.

Maybe you should have answered him. I hear those Nigerian princes are loaded. And great humanitarians to boot.
