Sheriff’s Office Warns of Scam

The Fentress County Sheriff’s Office issued a notice on Tuesday that a person posing as an agent for Microsoft is calling residents in Fentress County asking for remote access to their home computers.

Please do not allow this or give them any information.  Allowing this access gives these hackers direct access to your personal information, including credit cards and bank accounts.

Should you receive such a call, get as much information as you can and report it to the Sheriff’s Office at 879-8142.
