A new phishing scam is threatening law firms.  We are reaching out to our clients to help them avoid becoming a victim.

Please instruct staff handling inbound calls to hang up on callers claiming to be from Microsoft stating that your Windows license key will be deactivated.  The caller ID may appear to be coming from your own phone number.  This is NOT how Microsoft communicates with their customers and this is a scam!

  • Never give up any confidential information over the phone.
  • If you have any concern about an inbound call, hang-up and initiate the call back to the company on your own.
  • Legal Computer Consultants will never ask for passwords or other confidential information over the phone.
