    I hope these people are caught and put in jail just like a common thief. This is what mine said, which I just deleted, of course.

    Recorded message that $399 will be auto-deducted from my banking account within 24 hours for a subscription...

    TOTAL SCAM!

    But i have had some fun with these idiots.

    I called back, several times, and each time got different results. Each time i am asked how they may help me.

    I have replied different ways...

    a) I received a message about a subscription for $399, am angry and want it cancelled.

    b) i want to renew!

    c) act like i have no idea about PCs, please help

    d) ask them for last night's Lottery numbers

    Except for d), they all said it was for anti-virus software that I have purchased (no one gave me the same date, but it was in 2018...) and it is expiring today. Note that I have called them repeatedly for a week and it still is expiring that day...

    Eventually they guide me to go to this site www.bit.do/microsoftah

    I do not know where that goes, but i never tried it.

    They kept asking me if that started something to download! That right there was the final clue.

    The fact that they want me to go to 'Microsoft' site for anti-virus software and that it wasn't www.microsoft.com... another 'no-way' for me.

    A couple of times i grilled them about what software it was that I am renewing. They only replied in vague answers. One time he replied it was for Windows Defender! To which i replied, 'Oh really, like the one that is free to download from Microsoft?' ... He hung up.

    So if you see this post, please call them and have some fun! Tell you friends so they to can practice handling phone scammers!

    Keep asking them stupid questions or ask repeatedly which service this renewal is for.

    If not for fun, at least to take away time from them to be successful with someone else...

    I recieved an email for my renewal of Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection for $299.99 for a two year renewal. The call number to cancel or claim you did not make this purchase is 1-888-333-2636/ Then is goes on to say you have 24 hours to call to clear up so you wont be charged.. I looked up and seen that this is a scam, I am asking because the phone number is different to call then the email posted here. Is that normal for scammers to do the changing of phone numbers?

    My received an email stating that our subscription to Windows Defender Firewall has been auto renewed @ $199.00 and updated. We have no subscription and our Win 10 has it automatically and free. They also state that if we think this is an unauthorized transaction to call them @ 1-833-925-1250. Signed Ron Sully.

    This is a scam or phishing email, so do not respond to it!

      Same here. Got the email today. I reported it to Microsoft's phishing mailbox and to the US Federal Trade Commission.
