Scam Phone Calls Reported In Area

The Herald was notified last week of another telephone scam that is operating in this area.

The individual who called the Herald said she has received phone calls from someone claiming to represent Microsoft. The said the caller appears to be of Middle Eastern descent and can hardly speak English.

After receiving several calls from individual identified as Microsoft, she said she then got a call claiming to be from Windows. The caller’s English was so poor she could hardly understand it, she said.

If you receive an unsolicited call such as this, do not give any personal information. If the caller attempts to fraud you by asking for information, money, etc., report it to a law enforcement agency immediately.
