Trojan Spyware Alert Scam - Windows Defender Security Center

The Trojan Spyware alert below, which claims access to potential victims' PCs has been blocked for security reasons, is a fake and phishing scam. The scam attempts to trick potential victims into calling scammers/cybercriminals at the fake Microsoft Customer Support telephone number 1-(866)-993-1836, by falsely claiming their PC has become infected with a Trojan. Therefore, online users who have received the alert are asked not to call the fake Microsoft Tech Support number in it, because Microsoft will never ask Windows users to call them when they find a virus, Trojan, or malware on their computers.

With spyware installed on their potential victims' computers, they will steal their personal and financial information, which they will use fraudulently.
