Confronting the scammers who call you every day

Posted at 7:28 PM, Feb 09, 2017

There are a lot of phone scams circulating around the Valley. 

It could be a government agency promising you thousands of dollars for being a good person. Or maybe it's law enforcement agencies threatening to arrest you unless you pay. 

Then there are the computer scammers. 

They pretend to be Microsoft and noticed a "problem" with your computer. They want remote access to your desktop to supposedly fix the problem for you. 

Microsoft would never call you about this and they would never know if your computer had a virus or not.

These are fakes; they are scammers — and we recently had some fun with one of them.
