On October 31, 2018, Dryden Police received a call from a victim who reported that they were defrauded of a sum of money after being told by a “Microsoft” technician that their computer had a computer virus. The victim paid a fee to have the virus removed to later find out it was a fraud. If you receive a call, email or text that your computer has a virus DO NOT call the number listed, do not provide any personal information over the phone. It is a scam. It is unlikely your computer is affected in any way. If you are concerned, take your computer to a local technician for servicing.
