    Phone scam: Win7 license is “about to expire”

    I’m writing in reference to what my wife & I believe to be a phone scam related to the upcoming termination of Microsoft support for Windows 7.

    I've read the phone companies are getting together to make better spam call blockers, as it's not our responsibility.

    Windows 7 SUPPORT will be expiring at the end of 2019, but your Windows LICENSE does not ever expire, at least not under the present licensing terms.

    This is another fairly old scam, just updated.
