Salina Woman Scammed

KSAL StaffFebruary 26, 2014

Salina Police are warning the public about a scam that began with a phone call.

According to Captain Mike Sweeney, a 70-year-old Salina woman was contacted over the telephone by a male on Saturday morning.

The caller told the woman he was with Microsoft and convinced her that her computer was malfunctioning and that she needed to pay $10 for a new licensing fee. The woman agreed to pay the $10 and gave him her credit card number.

Police say someone then charged $275 to the card and the cash was transferred to an unknown Western Union location for pickup.

The woman also told police it appeared the scammer had remote control of her computer during the phone call.
