my mother clicked on a link on Facebook and her computer froze with a Microsoft screen saying to call this number. I looked up the Microsoft number on my phone and it was nothing like the number stating to call. I told my mother to ctl, alt delete and end the task. I am 100 percent this was a scam Caller: It was meant to be Microsoft
got alert on computer say Microsoft needs to be contacted on number on screen and computer is blocked. Called number but believe it went to a mobile with foreigner I could hardly understand asking me to give him remote control of my computer. I queried it and he said he'd get me to be able to chat on computer with them if I did it. No way Jose. Fortunately I'm not that ignorant and hung up. Did Ctr, Alt, Del. and closed computer. I had in my mind 'why didn't my chosen security give me an alert'. Think I saved my bacon.
