Beware of another computer scam going around.
The Genesee county Sheriff’s Office says it’s a telephone scam. 
You may get a call from someone identifying themselves as a Microsoft employee claiming to know there is a problem with your computer and give you a set of instructions to fix the problem.
By doing so, deputies said, you could give the caller remote access to your computer and everything on it.
