  2. Scam?

    No, that's not a Microsoft phone number.

    All these kind of pop-ups/alerts are fake warnings - scams. Never ever call these numbers.

    Please read:

    In case you keep on getting these fake alerts:

    Follow the steps provided here: Remove Tech Support Scam pop-up (Call For Support Scam)

    You might want to report this to Microsoft (but you don't have to):
    http://support.microsoft.com/reportascam

  3. Internet Scam? How to report, if so.

    Hello, this is a scam. Microsoft will never ask you to call them.

    Also their phone number is googleable so if you ever get a scam call like that, then you can look it up and ignore it.

    In any case, Report a scam here:

    Possible scam?

    Hi Thomas,

    I can understand the situation you are going through. To help you further, we need the following information.

    • Which Microsoft website have you visited?
    • What is the phone number that you have contacted?
    • What is the make and model of the computer?

    I suggest you to refer to the links for more information on possible scams.
