You received a phone call from someone claiming to be with Windows Security or someone affiliated with Microsoft. They said your computer is sending out computer viruses & they wanted you to go to my computer so they can help you solve my computer problems.
Is this legit?
MICROSOFT WILL NOT CALL YOU UNSOLICITED. This is a known scam. This is fraudulent in nature and the caller will try to ellicit money from you for contractual technical services sometimes into the hundreds of dollars. If you get one of these calls, just be polite and then hang up. If you are concerned that there may actually be something on your computer, compromising your personal information or computer data, then give GCS Tech a call. We can make sure you are safe.
