The Windows Scam – Now Available As An App!

, | Working | April 3, 2018

(My grandmother has just had a tooth extracted and is recovering at home. The phone rings at 7:30 the next morning, and I scramble out of bed to get it for her.)

Me: “Hello?”

Scammer: “Good morning, ma’am. I am calling from Microsoft services and technical support about your computer, okay?”

(I am livid, as I’ve dealt with this scam before and only have my iPad with me, anyway. More than that, they’ve just woken my grandmother.)

Me: “No, you are not, because I do not have a computer here. You have just woken my grandmother, and she just had surgery yesterday. GOODBYE!”

(I hung up, sweetly excused myself to my grandmother, and went back to bed.)
