Telephone Scams

Please be aware that there is a scam going around in which a person with a heavy accent calls a home stating that there are reports of error messages and viruses coming in from the user’s computer and they give you steps on how to help them “fix” these issues on your computer. By doing so, they have accessibility to your personal information, and they can infect your computer with a virus. Please be careful with this and do not allow them access to your computer.
