The Huntingburg Police Department wants to alert the public about another potential scam that seems to be making the rounds.
HPD says they have received several calls from community residents in regards to a company calling themselves MICROSOFT.
Police say the callers are trying to coax their potential victims to go to their computers, give them access, which police say could compromise an individuals person information.
Police say the scammer will then try to lock your computer up as the security program runs out before trying to sell the possible victim a new security program. This will then provide them information about you’re banking account.
Of course police say if you should receive any calls from a company identifying themselves as MICRO SOFT or receive any other calls that may sound like a possible scam operation, do not provide any personal info and simply hang up and contact your local law enforcement agency.
