If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to help you with your computer, do not do what they ask. They are attempting to hijack your computer to access your information.


Local residents have received calls from blocked numbers purporting to be representing Microsoft.  They have said that your computer has sent the company error messages and they are supposed to help you fix the errors.  It is an attempt to hijack your computer.  Do not comply with unsolicited calls that ask you to do anything with your computer. They may try to change their tactics so be aware.
