State police warn of ‘phishing’ scam

The New York State Police are warning citizens of a possible “phishing” scam in Western New York. Residents have received calls from a company that warns of computer viruses and the caller asks for remote access to computers to fix the “problem.”

“Phishing” is an attempt to access personal or financial information, through electronic communication, while posing as a legitimate or trustworthy entity.

Citizens are reminded to never give personal information during unsolicited telephone, text or online communications.
