"Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection"


  

          

Just got an email regarding Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection, with a charge of $299.99. I didn't order this and believe it to be a scam. Can I just ignore it? Will check for any charges in my banking, but don't think there will be any shown. Comments?

This was in the email:

Thanks for using Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection. This is an invoice for your recent purchase.
We Thank you on the Completion of your 1 year.
We tried to contact you on your register number for queries but could not get through.

Amount Due: 299.99 USD

Paid By: 12/03/2020

Order Id: 235-4521-128758
Date: 12/03/2020

Almost definitely a scam, but definitely check for charges. Remember, you never have to pay for anything you didn't order.

I agree. The scammers are getting better. I'm older, a lot older, and maybe a little wiser.
