The Sublette County Sheriff’s office is reporting that they have received multiple reports of a new email scam. This new scam claims to be and appears to be Norton Anti-virus.
They claim that your “card” has been charged anywhere between $200 and $400, and you need to call to rectify the account with them. Those who have called the number found the scammers are attempting to gain remote access to their computer to “fix the issues”.
When the scam victims didn’t agree to that, the scammers became belligerent and hung up the phone, which is a sure sign of a scam.
The Sheriff’s Department cautions, always double check with companies directly to ensure legitimacy of claims such as these, and exercise caution as scammers in recent years are getting more and more clever to look legitimate to gain access to credit cards or computers
