ALERT | Technical Support Phone Scam
Carlisle, Pa. —
Pennsylvania State Police are warning people of a known phone scam targeting senior citizens.
The suspects pretend to be a computer technical support employee and tell victims there is an issue with their computer.
They instruct the victims to download a program call "Team Speak", which gives them remote access to control the computer.
The victim then sees a fake computer screen that shows a large amount of money deposited into the victim's bank account.
The caller then tells them it is an error and that they must repay that amount with either gift cards or money orders.
