Watch Out For This Scam In Charlotte County

The West District RCMP is warning St. George, Blacks Harbour, and other Charlotte County residents about a telephone scam currently being reported in the area.

Fraudsters are contacting people at home pretending to be Microsoft or Windows employees, telling you your computer has a virus, that they need to perform an important update. They may request payment for this "service" by asking you to provide banking or credit card information. This can result in money being stolen from you and viruses added to your computer.

If you or a loved one may have been a victim of this type of fraud, please contact local police.
