    "Dear User,

    Thank you for using Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protextion. This is an invoice for Your recent Purchase.

    We Thank you on the completion of your 3 years.

    We tried to contact you on your registered number for queries but could not get through.

    Amount Due: 249.99

    Paid on: Feb 23, 2021

    INVOICE NO: 00074141478 Date: Feb 23, 2021

    Basically the same boiler plate template that they seem to be using for everyone else but with a few slight changes to the tyoe of service you supposedly purchased and the amount. I like the improper language syntax that they use for the emails. You can tell that this is clearly a scam, especially when they list the signature as this.

    As far as I know, that is not a TOLL FREE number. As always, beware of anything that comes across your email or text message service as well through other sources of electronic media as it is nothing but an easy buck for those that don't have a moral code to not harm others in their bodies.

    I called the number and spoke with an Indian man who wanted me to open Google on my computer. Thankfully because of the hurricane we have no power and I did not follow his directives. Came on here to Google his email and led me to this page.
