Received a call from Microsoft Refund Center saying they were refunding the $150 I paid them last year to fix a problem with my computer, which took them only 5 minutes to fix. They said they had to refund the amount electronically. After giving them information into my bank account, the refund did not go through. Then they were going to refund it via Western Union, which did not go through, and then by sending me a check Federal Express from India, which I did not receive. Thankfully, the bank protected my account. My friend, whose computer we were using, is very tech savvy and protected her system by immediately deleting the programs Microsoft Refund Center installed on her computer. No damage done. They called from phone number 239 491-4155 in California.
