Kilmartin Warns Of Tech Scam

Attorney General Peter Kilmartin is warning Rhode Island residents about a return of a tech support scam.  Kilmartin says residents have been receiving unsolicited phone calls from a person claiming to be tech support for a virus protection software company.  The caller tricks the person into allowing the scammer to access their computer remotely, then installs a virus or malware on the machine.  The scammer then tries to charge a big fee to repair the computer, and people are being urged not to fall victim to the scam.
