Placeholder Image
MONROE - The Monroe Police Department has received multiple reports of citizens getting calls from a company claiming to be Microsoft asking them to allow remote access to private computers, and the calls have been determined to be a scam. Police Chief Fred Kelley warned in a news release that unless a person has already contacted a tech service for problems with a computer, do not allow anyone to solicit access to their computer. All reported cases have not given access to the caller and a few of them did not own a computer.
