Reno residents and the rest of USA, @NSA this is a #PhoneScamAlert . I received a call from this number this morning calling to say he was from Microsoft office 365 and someone was attempting to download spy and malware to my computer to please let him remotely connect my computer so that he could stop them. I asked him why would he be doing it? he only replied because he was Microsoft Office 365 and it was his job. Now please hurry so he could catch them. He made it sound urgent and for my own protection. I asked him how he got my new government cell number then since Microsoft office 365 does not have it….I can count on one hand how many folks do have the number. I have not released my number online to anyone or any site. I continued to question how he got my number and he just kept repeating that I really needed to hurry to allow him to remotely connect for my own protection and that he was Microsoft Office 365 security. Finally I told him when he could send me an email proving he was Microsoft employee and no his word was not good enough for me then I would contact him back and hung up. I suggest not even answering your cell phone or house phone if you see this number because It looks like one that was calling my brothers number a few months back saying he could give him a grant and send the processing fee. BE CAREFUL< THINK> DO NOT LET THE SENSE OF URGENCY THE CALLS COME WITH GET YOU OFF GAURD>PAUSE, because if they are legit they will understand and wait. AND THEY WILL CONFIRM WHO THEY ARE. If you have any doubt, then do not give your info out to anyone!
I also suggest using reverse phone number look up.
