Computer Scam Affecting PG Residents
The Prince George RCMP are warning the public about a scam affecting residents' computers.
They say they have received reports about people being locked out of their computers and receiving a pop-up message saying their computer has been frozen by police for a criminal investigation.
RCMP say sometimes the pop-up provides a list of possible offences, including child pornography or illegal music downloading.
The message then tells the owner to pay 100 dollars so their computer can be unlocked.
Police say the messages claim to come from the RCMP or other Canadian government agencies, but they do not, and it is important no one send money.
If you've received this message on your computer, please contact the RCMP and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
