Another Scam in our area. This one is a Grandparent Scam and is targeting the elderly. Someone will call and say they are in jail or have been in a car wreck and need someone to send them money. The caller will pose as grandchildren or other family members.
Someone will call your house and claim to be computer tech support. Do not give out any personal information or give them access to your computer. If you receive a phone call claiming to be from ‘Microsoft’ or someone claiming to work on their behalf, telling you that you have a virus on your computer or computer sending out emails and which they will help you fix over the phone or they need to access your PC remotely to remove illegal software. It Is A Scam. Hang up the phone, do not let them have remote control access to your computer and do not give them any money.
