I've had three calls from someone stating that they are from Micro-Soft and that my I-P address has been compromised, The call comes in linked to my home phone number. I have ignored this but it is so annoying. I was wondering if this has occurred to any other members in the community??

Hello @ytramtoob Welcome to the Webroot Community Forum.

What you are seeing is a scam. It happens to me all the time on my home phone. On our home phone, Verizon is starting to label these scam calls as "Spam" on the caller ID. I know it's a PITA with all these spam calls we get now a days.
