  3. I think im being scammed by www.****.com

    Hi,

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    First of all you should disconnect your computer from the internet and perform a full scan on your PC for any harmful files.

    Any other form of customer communication about Windows 10 upgrades is not a genuine Microsoft initiative or content.

    Be vigilant about protecting your devices against fraudulent scams, such as:

    • A fraudulent email providing you a link or attachment that claims to start the Windows 10 installation process.
    • An unsolicited internet pop-up attempting to guide you through the installation process.
    • A phony phone call from someone posing as a Microsoft employee, who offers to assist with an upgrade to Windows 10 or to “help” with any other Microsoft product.
    If you are already a victim or are targeted by one of these scams:

    • Do not follow the instructions, click on links, or open attachments. If you received the information by email, delete the message.
    • Report the fraudulent communication to Microsoft:
      https://support.microsoft.com/reportascam
    • Go to
      Microsoft Safety & Security Center
      for information and resources dedicated to helping keep your PC safe from threats, including viruses, malware and phishing attempts.
