Beware of Microsoft Windows 10 Scams

Microsoft is in the process of distributing their new Windows 10 Operating System. This is an upgrade that you do not pay for, promises to fix problems with earlier versions, and claims to be more secure.

Some individuals are trying to exploit Microsoft efforts, to fool people into paying for this free upgrade.  You might get calls from scammers claiming to be Microsoft tech support and trying to charge you for the upgrade using your credit card.

Also, be wary of any email claiming to be from Microsoft about "Your Windows 10 Upgrade." Links included in such emails may not actually take you to the Microsoft site.

If you want the Microsoft upgrade and we provide support for your computer, please contact us at collegeit@uchicago.edu

Here is the link to the upgrade if you're more of a diy person:
