VICTIM: 73yo female from Chestertown, MD
DETAILS: Acting Corporal Steenken responded to the above address in reference to a case of fraud. The victim advised that she received three separate calls from a male indicating that her computer was hacked. According to the victim, the male advised her, on each call, that he would repair her computer for a fee. The male identified himself as Robert and claimed he worked for the company, My Fly by World LLC. “Robert” advised the victim that she needed to obtain Google Play cards to pay for the fee. The total loss was approximately $20,996. This investigation is ongoing.
Please note: Some scammers call and claim to be computer techs associated with well-known companies like Microsoft or Apple. Other scammers send pop-up messages that warn about computer problems. They say they’ve detected viruses or other malware on your computer. They claim to be “tech support” and will ask you to give them remote access to your computer. Eventually, they’ll diagnose a non-existent problem and ask you to pay for unnecessary, or even harmful, services.
If you receive an unexpected pop-up, call, spam email or other urgent messages about problems with your computer, stop. Don’t click on any links, don’t give control of your computer and don’t send any money (ftc.gov

).
