Sheriff Robert Dekker reports a new scam affecting residents and businesses in Millard County.
“Individuals are calling and claiming that the victim’s computers are sending error messages to them and then these individuals offer to help resolve the errors,” said Sheriff Dekker. “The scammer requests to take control of the computer by having the victim download and install a software program, which can possibly be malicious in nature. The scammer then will go to the Western Union Web site on the victim’s computer where he or she will initiate a money transfer from the victim before they will offer any additional help.”
