ST. GEORGE, N.B. - Police in New Brunswick are warning people about a telephone scam involving callers who say they're with Microsoft or Windows.
Police say they have received complaints from residents of St. George, Blacks Harbour and the surrounding area.
They say callers may tell residents their computer has a virus and needs to be updated.
They ask for remote access to the computer and request payment by asking for banking or credit card information.
This could also lead to access to personal information on the computer and viruses being added to the computer.
Sgt. Ross Davis says people should never provide personal or financial information over the phone or through email.
