Trend Micro Scam

Trend Micro Imposters!

Last week we received a call from one of our customers. They said someone claiming to be from Trend Micro contacted and stated Trend Micro was out of date.  The caller named Akeem gave our customer the phone number 817-386-4921.

First of all, Trend Micro (or any of our vendors) would never call our customers directly. If …
