St. Joseph Police Advise of Phone Scam

Police are warning of another phone scam making its way across the area.
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Police are warning of another phone scam making its way across the area.

Capt. David Hart, with the St. Joseph Police Department, said several people have received calls from individuals claiming to be with Microsoft. The caller then asks the victim to go to a website that gives the caller access to the victim's computer. The caller is claiming to find problems with the victim's computer and needs a credit card number for a service fee.

The calls are coming from a 425 area code. Capt. Hart says the calls are actually coming from overseas. He says Microsoft will not call for these types of issues and if you receive a similar call, it is likely a scam.
