Police in Oshkosh are warning about a scam that comes as a warning about scams.
The scam starts with a legitimate-looking warning that someone might have fallen for a scam on their computer, or were scammed at their bank. The fake warning then has people call a number, and that’s where the scammers get them. Oshkosh Police say the scammers even warn people to be careful about sharing personal or banking information, but it’s all a ruse. Investigators say the biggest red flag is any request for payment, particularly with money orders or gift cards. The police say your best bet is to ignore any of the scam warnings, and don’t click on any links.
