Scam Alert

Deputies want to warn you about a telephone scam where illegal businesses are trying to get access to your personal information.

Wakulla county man John Owens said a scam artist called him Monday saying that his computer was sending error messages. The scam artist claimed to be with Microsoft's Z Tech Solutions. The scam artist asked Owens for personal information to clear the error, but Owens was skeptical.

"Reputable companies will not call you and ask you for your personal information or access to your computer system."

Deputies say many times scam artists create websites and put positive testimonials on there. That way clients will think they're legitimate.
