DUBOIS COUNTY -- Some locals have reported receiving calls from someone pretending to be with Microsoft.  

Those would-be victims say the caller claims Microsoft Office has been forced to close and asks for remote access to your computer and bank account information to give a refund.

This is a scam.  If you get a call like this hang up.

If you’ve been scammed by this caller, you’re urged to contact your local law enforcement agency.
