Microsoft Scam

We have received reports of citizens receiving calls from someone claiming to work for Microsoft. The caller states the recipients computer has been compromised and gains permission to remotely access the computer to fix it. In doing so, the caller is able to gain unlimited access to the computer and is able to retrieve financial records and other sensitive data. The caller then requires the victim pay a fee before the computer access is given back to the rightful owner. If you have concerns about your computer, please contact a reputable computer company for repairs. We also suggest you keep your anti-virus and anti-malware software up to date. If you receive any calls from anybody claiming they can assist with your computer, do you not provide them any information.
