New York State Police in Canandaigua are warning residents of a scam being reported in the area.


It involves computers, where the victims say they are prompted with a message to call a phone number.

When they place the call they are connected with a person who says they are part of Microsoft’s Security Office.

They are then asked to provide their bank account information.

State police are advising anyone who receives such a call to not provide any personal information.
