    Microsoft Universal Server


    I just got off the phone from someone who claimed to be from Microsoft telling me that I was going to be disconnected from the Microsoft Universal Server within the next day or two. He want to have access to my computer to install software to repair some errors to stop me from infecting other computers. I naturally declined because I have never heard of Microsoft doing this.

    I have run all security scans and found nothing.

    Has anyone else heard of this or received such a call. I wanted a phone number to call him back but her would not supply one and because they have too many computers to contact.

    Hello Nuccii,

    It's a phishing scam trying to get information and money from you.
