For the past few months, folks in the Dufferin Country area are getting calls from someone claiming to be from “Microsoft” or “Windows”, generally with an east indian accent. This person will warn that you have a virus and that for a fee they will log into your computer and fix your issues. This is a scam. In a new development a few of these scammers have claimed to have an association with VAM Computers.  If you get one of these calls, please tell them that you are very busy and can you get a number to call them back at? Whether you get a callback number or not, call the RCMP anti-fraud center at 1-888-495-8501 and give them the details.

Thanks
