Ridgefield Police are warning of a computer hacking scam.  A victim reported getting what looked like a virus alert that took over the entire browser page recently and made to look like it came from Microsoft.  The victim called the number given and a purported support person said was a scam and that they probably had a virus.  The victim opted for the $500 fee to have the virus removed so the supposed "Microsoft Tech" was given access to the computer.  The victim then called their antivirus tech support and was told that the phone number listed on the pop up was a scam number and their computer had most likely been hacked into. They were advised to contact their local police department to report the incident.
