  1. phone calls from Microsoft?


    Am receiving multiple calls stating "Microsoft is stopping my support service, number to call back is 1-312-667-9490."

    Surely this is not a legitimate call? Am not answering nor returning call.

    :)

    Another phone call scam pretending to be Microsoft

    A thread was posted on another forum I frequent about a phone call scam where they claim to be Microsoft and ask you install some things to repair the security breach they've detected.

    Thought id post the number used here to make you guys n gals aware in case you get a phone call.

    number is : 0203 286 9239
    Apparently the lad who started the thread Googled it and its a 'Cost Trap'.

    Thread is here (I realise it's against the rules but due to its nature thought it might be helpful. Pm me if not and ill remove it.) :

    Just had a phone call....... - Renault Forums :: Independent Renault forum

    So yea, Heads up.

    Shame we don't have some form of list of all these numbers, I bet people on here get it quite often.

    Supported phones for Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview


    Your list confirms my phone is eligible, Lumia 521. The windows Insider App fails after ~ 15 seconds, restores data and gives me error 80073cf9. I trouble shot this and went thru all the steps mentioned on several websites including MS without any luck. Short of a hard reset, this is where I am now. Suggestions appreciated.
