Scam Alert! – Don’t get fooled by this phone call…

November 1, 2013


There is a major scam going around Cape Cod, Chatham, and the whole country.

 The phone rings, it’s a guy from India? Philippines? Microsoft? He tells you that there is something wrong with your computer, and that you should let him remote control it, so he can show you what is wrong. He even manages to get some error messages on the screen to convince you. If he gets far enough, he puts a password on your computer and says you need to pay $ to get it all cleaned up. Only around $299 – $600.

 Guess that, if he gets paid, I get paid to fix it. 

A LOT of folks are getting roped into this one, don’t be one of those folks.
