SCAM ALERT: Error # 0x80072ee7 (Microsoft Scam)
The bogus “Error # 0x80072ee7” alert is shown in such a way as to trick the user into thinking their computer has crashed or that a virus has been detected on the computer. It does this to try and scare the infected user into calling one of the listed numbers in order to receive support. In reality, though, they will only be greeted with people who are trying to sell them unneeded support contracts and services….
These “Error # 0x80072ee7” alerts are nothing more than a scam. Don’t call the number in the pop-ups. Microsoft’s error and warning messages never include a phone number.
Microsoft does not send unsolicited email messages or make unsolicited phone calls to request personal or financial information or fix your computer. Treat all unsolicited phone calls or pop-ups with skepticism. Do not provide any personal information.
