Tech Support Scam Report


Fond du Lac area residents are being warned about a recent report of the tech support scam in the area. Officer Keywon Brown of the Fond du Lac Police Department says with the scam, a person will call saying they are with Microsoft or a different computer company and that they detected a breach in your computer’s security and they’ll fix it for a fee. He says they will continue to call back with different perceived issues each time and a different price each time, so each time they call they’re taking more money away from you. Brown says by giving the scammer remote access to your computer, you are giving them access to personal files and data and also allowing the opportunity for them to download ransomware or a virus. Brown says the best thing to do if you think your computer needs repair is to take it to a trusted family member or local business to get it fixed.
