In the past 30 days there have been a few incidents of fake IT Support Technicians contacting residents of University Park and claiming they've identified a virus on their personal computer. These imposters pose as employees of popular computer manufacturers and want you to believe that your computer is infected by a serious virus. They will request payment for a service they can't provide and one that you don't need. The telltale sign that it is a scam is when they explain payment must be made by wiring money, putting money on a gift card, prepaid card or cash reload card, or using a money transfer app because they know these types of payments are difficult to reverse. This is one of many scams used by thieves to steal your money. This information is being shared to increase your awareness and help you to recognize fraud schemes.
