NEW RASH OF SCAM CALLERS
If someone calls and claims to be from, or associated with, Microsoft, or some other computer related company, and wants to "fix" your computer by connecting remotely, or if they ask you to download something to your computer THEN HANG UP. They may call back, and continue to try to scare you into unnecessary service. We are getting three or four customers a day reporting this kind of scam. If in doubt, get a number to call the person back and give us a ring first. Nobody should be calling YOU to service your computer. If you need help, you can call someone, but nobody else would know your computer needs service but you. Ignore such scare tactics.
In a related story - LOCAL PHONE SCAM
There is a new scam in which someone will call claiming to be from the local utility department requesting payment of an overdue bill, and will threaten cut-off. The City of Gastonia does not call for payments, and will not cut off services on a weekend (according to an automated call I just received warning of this scam) If someone calls requesting payment, just hang up.
