State Police Again Warn Public As Residents Continue To Be Duped By Scams

They call me all the time. I tell them "God loves you and doesn't want you to be a scammer. He wants you to get a job where you help people."

This scam is also going on in Florida where I currently reside. We have also had someone, someway make a copy of our debit card and pin number and remove over $2400. from our checking acct. Now the only place we use our debit card is at the bank and otherwise we use a credit card! Beware, so many scams!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Made the mistake of using my debit card to pay for monthly phone bill for Virgin Mobile company. Was shocked that they charged me 3 times in one month. They said the mistake was mine and refused to refund me. NEVER use credit/debit cards for those you don't completely trust. Never use it to pay a Virgin Mobile bill.

The calls from individuals claiming to be from Microsoft are generally (although not always) a result of a malware/virus infection on your computer. The malicious program will scan your computer and monitor what keys you press on your keyboard and where they are entered (for example, the phone number field of a website you're signing up for). The malicious program will then send that information back to the criminal's computers with as much information about you as they can get. At that point, they call you to notify you that your computer is infected or broken and because of the information gathered through their malicious program, they are able to identify you and/or your computer. In most cases, scanning your computer with an up-to-date anti-virus program (such as AVG) and an anti-malware program (such as Malwarebytes) will remove any of these malicious programs from your computer.

If you have any questions about this, feel free to contact Nate from Hendo Computers at (814) 558-8170.

Unfortunately my husband & I were duped my these jerks. It took weeks & weeks to get everything straightened out again. Take heed people. Just hang up!!! They had the nerve to call us a few times after, also. I have to say I wasn't as nice to them as Post 7:11.

I got the same phone call and I told the guy on the line that I worked for Microsoft too and Microsoft doesn't call people up and do that. I told him I was going to report his telephone number to the state police and they would be contacting the FBI. He hung up on me.
