Computer Repair Phone Scam
The Janesville Police Department has recently been advised of a computer phone scam targeting area residents. Victims have been contacted by phone advising the residents of issues with their computers and soliciting funds to make repairs.
Residents need to be aware that someone calling your phone has no access to your computer and would not know if it is not running optimally. Furthermore, a reputable computer repair business would not contact you by phone to solicit your business.
Please check with the Better Business Bureau to verify the legitimacy of the business prior to making any payments by phone. http://www.bbb.org/wisconsin/
