Polk Sheriff warns of phone, computer scam

Polk County, Florida -- The Polk County Sheriff's Office is warning people of phone scammers calling unsuspecting victims who claim to work for a computer diagnostic company.

The sheriff's office says the scammers tell the victims to go to their computers so they can help them fix the problem, but they end up infecting the victims' computers with viruses.

If you are the victim of this scam and your computer has become infected, you need to take your computer to a local computer repair technician and have it serviced.

And, as always, you should report scams to your local enforcement agency.
