The McPherson County Sheriff's Office recently took a report from an individual who said they were contacted by Microsoft Technical Support.

These Scammers called saying they noticed the victim was having issues with their computers performance. The victim was talked into allowing them access to their computer by following their directions.

The Scammers say they can fix the issue for various amounts of money and usually ask for banking information, credit card information, or request payment in the form of various gift cards.

If you are contacted by a company and you didn't call them first, make sure you don't give them any information. Just Because the screen says to call a number, make sure to call your own local service tech for advice.
