Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. No, that is certainly a scam; they just pretend to be from Microsoft. Please always ignore any phone call that you do not know or that you are not expecting.

Is there any issue with your computer?

Also, Microsoft has written an article about phone scams at the Microsoft website below:

; Note: The above Microsoft website might be down right now; if needed, you can read the article at another website below for now:

Always be careful. Basically, you should always ignore any phone call or email message or popup message that you do not know or that you are not expecting.
