        My friend had a problem. He apparently called Microsoft’s phone # and ended up with JustAnswer. They gave him some useless information and tried to charge him a monthly “membership fee.” Clearly, it was a scam, but he is convinced they must have a contract with MSFT. I’m convinced he never called MSFT.

        Can anyone figure out what probably happened?

        Do you know what number he called? I doubt it was Microsoft.

        The number he wrote down and told me was the MSFT #. I suspect he somehow got flustered and somehow dialed JUSTANSWER.

        Would they have a contract to handle MSFT support calls???

          Do you know where the phone number was sourced from? Maybe it was a scam source?

          The official global phone numbers can be located here, and this Wikihow page on Contacting Microsoft was co-authored by MS, and includes email contact details. There is also avenues such as Twitter.
