Taylor County Sheriff Terring Skinner wants to warn residents that someone claiming to be a Microsoft representative could call you soon, and if you're not careful, you could be the next victim of their scam.
The person is saying that a virus is going around and they need to check your computer. Then, they get your information and take control of your computer.
They install malicious software, adjust privacy information, and steal your credit card information.
Microsoft will not make phone calls for software issues. If you do get a call like this, please call your local law enforcement agency immediately.
