Scammers are coming out of the woodwork, and Anna P.D. has received several reports of such activity recently.


Anna Police Lt. Jeff Caponera said one such reported scam attempt was about callers saying they are with Microsoft and were offering to help the intended victim with repairs on their computer operating systems. But first, the intended victim must send money to the caller.


“Visit the Texas Attorney General’s website, http://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/cpd/frauds-and-scams to get a good idea of what scams are going around now, and how to react to them,” Caponera said.
