Customer Question
I have another computer, Asus...
I have another computer, Asus, and I just received a message to contact Microsoft immediately, not turn off the computer or close the site.
I called the number listed (1-***-***-****) and got a man who would not tell me much so I hung up.
Also, I need to add this new computer to my account.

Hello, please understand that there are many out there who would like nothing more then to rip off honest people. I am not one of them, and would like to assist you to verify if this email is legit or if it is a scam.

To start with please tell me if the new computer is truly a new pc, or have you refurbished an old machine with new software as I could see how that would cause something like what you're describing.
