Ingham Co. Sheriff’s Office warning of Microsoft Tech Support scam

INGHAM COUNTY, MI (WLNS) – Ingham County sheriff’s officials are warning of a scam in which hackers get your permission to get into your computer then steal your personal information.

They say it starts with someone calling you, claiming to be from Microsoft Tech Support.

Then they ask to remotely log into your computer and that’s when they take over, swiping your personal information, including banking numbers.

Officials say if anyone claiming to be from Microsoft calls you, don’t buy anything from them, don’t let them take over your computer and call local police to report it.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
