Be aware there's a group of scammers pretending to be from Microsoft calling local people saying your Microsoft license is about to expire and numerous other things they say could be wrong with your account. You can tell by background noise they're in a call center. Do not give out any information, Microsoft does not make calls like this, your license never expires. They are just trying to get access to our computer to steal your personnel information. And they will get into your files if you give them any info. The guy I had call was a high pressure smart ash and really turned it up a notch threating to shut down my Microsoft system if I didn't cooperate I told him to go for it.

Yes received similar call guy was high pressure obnoxious and threating to shut my computer down if I didn't cooperate and give him the info he was asking for. Don't give out any info Microsoft doesn't call about license for anything.

Just got such a call here in North Dakota. I just said "no thank you" and hung up.
