Police warn of computer scam

Posted: Updated:

A Cumberland County resident is the victim of an ongoing scam where someone claiming to be a Microsoft representative asks for remote access to home computers, police said.

North Middleton Township police said the resident was told in a phone call last week that their computer had been compromised and needed service.

The caller was able to obtain personal information when he was given access to the computer, and also received credit card information from a service fee, police said.

Three charges were made to the card and there also was an international fee for the use of the card in India, police said.
