    No one here is calling anyone.

    Be advised this is Windows Central which has no official affiliation with Microsoft.

    If you're receiving calls from someone saying they are from Microsoft simply hang-up.
    Calls like this are a common scam from criminals looking to steal personal info from you.

    If these calls persist call into your local police department using their "non-emergency" reporting number to let them know.

    Just to be clear…

    This is a fan based News and Discussion site. It is in no way run by Microsoft, Lumia or any developer.


    If anyone contacts you by phone like that, or you see a popup or email on your device... It Is ALWAYS A SCAM. Never give them any information, never let them remote session onto your device. Swear at them like a drunken pirate and hang up.


    If you need additional help or have more questions or details to share, please join the site so you can reply in this thread... Please see this link for instructions on how to join Windows Central.
