Another day, another scam. This time, local deputies are sending out a warning about a phone call you might be getting.
According to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office, citizens have reported getting calls from someone claiming to be from Microsoft. They’ll say they’re calling to alert them about a virus on their computer, which they’ll help get rid of.
Don’t fall for it! It’s a scam. They’ll want you to give them remote access to your computer. Once they get that access, they can steal your personal information and/or infect your computer.
Neither Microsoft or any company working on their behalf will make unsolicited phone calls to you, so please don’t fall for it!
