I was on edge explorer and suddenly it was interruped by a super imposed notification with the microsoft emblem, also edge warning of virus and goverments demands to enter requiered info. And call the posted tel. Number. Other wise will terminate all systems.
I received a call from "Alan" at Microsoft telling me there was activity on my IP address and he would sell me IP encryption for a lifetime price of $349 , I paid the money and never heard back . I called the New York number but whoever answered played dumb .
Person said he was microsoft about my account my payment was due and my account would be disconnected if i didn't pay. I hung up immediately. I called later to see if anyone would answer but got a answering machine to neave a callback number.
We’ve been receiving scam call that shows our own phone number

Hi, in the past few weeks, we’ve been receiving phone calls shows our own phone number saying “this is Microsoft, and your license is expire, to avoid interruption of your service, please call such number. We tried to block the caller but it’s impossible to do so because it shows our own phone number on the caller log. We’ve reached out to our phone provider Spectrum and they couldn’t find out who the caller is either. It’s really ignoring because they call so many times in a day for the past few weeks. Please investigate.
I was reading the news when SECURITY ALERT from MICROSOFT EDGE popped up and blocked the key pad. A number to call, and two boxes for e-mail adr. and pass word. I called the given number. The person I talked to had a heavy accent, and told me he was a Microsoft technician. When I asked for his Microsoft employment number he got very upset. I then ended the call.
