Beware - 'Microsoft' phone scam

I had a phone call from a plausible-sounding man saying he was from Microsoft who had identified a Trojan virus on my computer that would steal my data.

Because I have computer-savvy friends, I realised it was a scam and put the phone down. (On reflection I wish I hadn't hung up, it would have cost him a fortune in phone charges!)

He did sound very plausible, but no firm, whether Microsoft, Virgin, Firefox, anyone, would ever phone you to ask for your details.

Stay safe and well!
