The Akwesasne Mohawk Police Service is currently investigating a complaint from a community resident who received an unsolicited telephone call from an internet anti-virus company. The complainant allowed the caller to remotely access their computer and download a program, paying a $250.00 fee. After the download, the complainant was unable to log-in. This scheme involves company representatives calling individuals and stating, for example, that it is Microsoft calling and that their computer is running slow or has viruses. They offer to repair the computer over the internet, which can involve the installation of software or the customers allowing the representatives remote access to their computer.
