    "If you receive an unsolicited phone call that purports to be from Microsoft and requests that you send personal information, hang up the phone.”

    Even products that was known to become scam and using the logo as "Microsoft Silver or Gold Partner".

    Main thing if there's any problem make sure to take down the number from the official like Microsoft. Assuming its a toll free.
