Brown County Scam 09 Jun 12

The Brown County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a new scam being reported in the local area. An individual who claims to work for Microsoft is contacting potential victims and asking that they install software on their home computer so he can access the computer remotely. The individual states that the reason for the remote access is because the victim’s home computer has been sending multiple error messages to Microsoft. Remember that if you do not solicit a business personally, there is a good chance that it is a potential scam.
