Reporting a SCAM attempt

I have just seen a telephone scam offered to a participant to whom I was responding.

The telephone number offered is 1 855 332 0777

Sean Wiggins needs to be informed before he returns to his thread in the community, on

VIRUS and MALWARE section.

Hi Glen,

I dealt with the spammer, profile now inactive.

Hopefully edit you made to your reply alerted OP to scam if scammers post wasn't deleted before being seen by OP. Your diligence is appreciated.

In future I suggest you consider posting such requests in CPC Moderation Requests which is more closely monitored.

Such scams should be reported to Microsoft or legal watch dogs in their specific country.
