Yes always! Never allow anyone access to your machine or give them any personal information EVER! Nobody from Microsoft or anywhere actually will ever call to tell you there is an issue.

Snopes fact or fiction


If someone calls you claiming to be from Microsoft and telling you that they are detecting something wrong with your computer that they want to fix, it is a scam designed to gain access to your computer to steal financial or other information.
"In short, Microsoft does not contact people out of the blue to tell them there's something wrong with their computers. Ergo, unless you've initiated contact with Microsoft about a computer problem you're having, you should dismiss as frauds any phone calls, e-mails, online chat dialogues, and the like from folks who claim they work for Microsoft and have spotted something wrong with your computer. "

Please think twice. It is a scam. Sure if you click the mail, there will be a link and if you hit that one, you have malware or a virus.

No, for someone to know you've been hacked would mean they have access already, this is a scam to get you to give them access, at this point they can grab what ever they want.


Never give anyone remote access to your computer unless you know who it is, and then think twice.
