The issue in GetHuman1039470's own words
I called a Microsoft number to see if I had malware due to red sign saying my computer had been hacked and I was to call "this number". I talked to someone from the Microsoft number I called. They said I had *,*** bugs on my computer. And that for $***.** for * year plan, I could get a security plan. I said yes and showed them my check by camera, it was cashed, the Microsoft tech guy said he was putting the support number on my phone, so I could call if I needed Microsoft help again. Then a red stop sign shape is now in the upper right corner on my browser. It says ABP. Is this legitimate from Microsoft?
