    Is Microsoft Support at **** a scam


    I posted a question on this forum. I received an email response to call ****.

    The "agent" I spoke with for a FEE was going to "fix" my win 10.

    In retrospect my original problem was NOT win 10 related, but a Netflix recording issue.

    If this forum can't be trusted it is useless to deal with.

    :)

    Yes. That's a scam.

    Microsoft doesn't call you if you didn't ask them to call you.

    Do not trust unsolicited calls. Do not provide any personal information.
