800-642-7676. Some rude Indian guy called and when I answered the phone asked if I knew anything about XXXXXXX@outlook.com email address and I said of course I did. He said than I have some news that will interest you, you have been logged in at and named several cities and states, then asked have you been traveling? I know the BS was going to fly at this point. He asked me to get in front of my computer and he would "walk me through" the steps we had to take. He asked "exactly what time can I call you and he would help my fix the issue." I told him I would call him when I needed him...that's how it works in this country! He gave me a bogus number that was not the number that the call came in on. If you call the 800-642-7676 number the message that you get when it answers could lead someone to believe that they called Microsoft. The number he gave me to call back was 800-102-1000, another bogus number. At the end of the conversation I told him to get his ass back on his magic carpet and fly his scamming ass back from where he came. OK, that was rude but really!
For those of you who wonder about how these creeps Know your daughters name for instance, it is easy to find using a people finder product online. For more organized scams AI is so available and able to dissect data so finely it is very scary. This is the age of social engineering and it is an art form. If ANYONE gave me their Facebook info I know your entire family in minutes...how? Pretty simple, I look at a picture on you Facebook site, get the GPS coordinates of a picture you have posted, read the caption and find out it is your home so I know exactly where you live, now I find everyone that has the same last name and look for a picture with the same GPS coordinates. Mind you...I work in technology, specifically in Cybersecurity and this is a very simple example. With an algorithm you can do this 10 million times in the space of minutes. Personally, I don't have a Facebook page because of this type of reality. People can find out who you are without much effort.
