Scam Alert: Windows Defender Invoice

If you have gotten a bill in your email for Windows Defender Advanced Threat protection you are not alone… and yes, it’s a scam.  This invoice will look in varying forms, but with the same idea of scaring you that you just purchased Windows Defender Advanced Threat protection for something in the $300-$400 range.  If you don’t want it, they want you to fall for calling them at the number provided.  A very nice person will apologize and seem generally concerned to save you the money you do not want to spend.  Ultimately, they are trying to gain your trust and help you. They simply need to either log into your computer to remove it or get some financial information from you so they can credit you back.
