Someone claiming to be a Microsoft technical support employee has been calling residents to steal credit card information, according to the Napa County Sheriff’s Office.
At least two Napa County Sheriff’s Office employees and a Napa County resident were contacted recently, Capt. Doug Pike said. All received unsolicited calls at home from the suspect asking for personal information, including credit card information, because their computer programs allegedly needed to be updated.
Microsoft does not make cold calls. If called, hang up, the Sheriff’s Office advises.
