Columbus, NE~~The Columbus Police Department is warning citizens to be on the lookout for another scam. In the latest scam, the caller claims to be from Microsoft and says your computer is under attack and if you pay them they can correct the problem. The caller asks for you credit card number and/or checking account number to fix the problem.
Columbus Police say Microsoft will not call you and solicit for information unless you have called them for technical support. If you feel you are a victim of a scam, contact the Attorney General’s office.
