Dodge County Sheriff Wise To Scammer


A scammer got more than she bargained for when she called Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt and tried to install malware on his computer. It happened Tuesday while Schmidt was at work. The caller tried to get access to the Sheriff’s computer, but he wouldn’t bite. Schmidt feels it was an effort to install spyware or ransomware on his computer. Schmidt was suspicious when his caller ID showed the call was coming in from an invalid number so he flipped on his recorder and recorded the 3-plus minute call. When he said he had a firewall that didn’t faze her, but when he also mentioned his IT Department that’s when the call came to abrupt halt. Schmidt urges anyone who receives that type of call just to hang up.
