The Shirley Police Department would like to warn citizens about a scam going on in Town at this time.
Several residents have called and reported the following information, please report any similar calls you might receive.
The call came in from Cambridge Ma phone number 857-453-6745 the gentlemen with a Indian accent said he was calling from microsoft that there was an operating error in
Computer system that had froze my hard drive and would corrupt my mother board… If I would allow them access into my system, and had a credit card they could remotely
access my computer and fix the error!
Microsoft does not cold call, you would find help items IF THERE WAS A PROBLEM thru Microsoft into your email or receive an operating system alert (I confirmed with Microsoft)
AND if you call the 857-453-6745 number it is NOT in service
DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY CREDIT CARD INFORMATION OR PERSONAL INFORMATION.
CONTACT SHIRLEY PD AT 978-425-2642, PLEASE SHARE INFORMATION WITH FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS.
