Reminder About Phone Scams

Just a reminder that if you receive a phone call from *anyone* who says they are from Microsoft, or any other organisation asking/telling you that your PC/Laptop is faulty and needs to be checked/repaired remotely then please just hang up. It is always a scam. You will be charged an excessive amount of money for running a few utilities or worse, you could have your PC hijacked or malware/spyware put onto it.
Legitimate companies do not call you out of the blue.
If your computer was running slowly or had something wrong with it when they called you, they did not know that, it was just a coincidence that they called. Do not be fooled. Hang up the phone.
