BRIEF: Residents warned of computer scam
Dec 13, 2012 (Fergus Falls Daily Journal - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Fergus Falls police are warning residents of an online scam that has been reported in the area.
The scam comes in the form of a popup that locks up the computer.
The message reads that the user needs to pay a specific dollar amount ($200 and $400 have been reported) to the FBI in order to unlock the computer.
This is a scam, and no amount of money will unlock the computer.
A repair shop may be able to clean out the virus, but no action should be taken.
