WARNING FROM DISTRICT ATTORNEY STAN GARNETT - May 20, 2014 - Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett warns Boulder County residents to be alert, after a sudden spike in reports of telephone tech support scam calls hitting local residents. Numerous complaints have recently been received by the Community Protection Division of the office. Callers often begin the conversation by saying that they are calling from Microsoft Tech Support, Windows Helpdesk/ Service Center or similar. They falsely represent that scans of a consumer’s computer show that it is has been compromised or infected, and offer to sell software to fix the alleged problems. They will usually walk the consumer through some routine registry operation, and then claim to have detected a virus. Having convinced the worried user that their computer is infected, they will then suggest that they download and pay for anti-virus software. The software may well be useless and ineffective; sometimes it may in fact be malware itself. Consumers are advised:
Remember, these fraudsters may already have your name from telephone directory searches.
- Any call where you are advised that your computer security has been compromised should be treated with the greatest suspicion;
- Ask for a callback number and take the caller’s information down;
- Don’t give the caller your information; or let them have third party control of your computer;
- Don’t go to any site suggested and download or purchase software to “fix” the problem;
- Make sure you do have good anti-virus software installed and run updates;
- Thieves will prey upon anxiety and attempt to create a sense of urgency so that you do not have time to think through the situation.
Residents are urged to spread the word through their networks of friends and family to make sure that older residents, who may be less computer-savvy, are not scammed by the fraudsters. Anyone who would like further information can contact the Community Protection Division of the District Attorney’s Office at 303.441.3700.
NO SWIMMING, TUBING, BOATING ON THE ST VRAIN AND LEFT HAND CREEKS - The Longmont City Manager has issued an emergency order that there be no swimming, tubing, boating, or other form of watercraft or other activity on the the St. Vrain and Left Hand Creeks within the City of Longmont, until further notice. The river channels remain obstructed by debris consisting of large rocks, concrete slabs, fallen trees, construction materials, and other such debris that has now created a higher level of risk to users of these two creeks and to the community. Given the risks created and increased by the flood, and exacerbated by these channel obstructions and the anticipated higher than normal spring runoff along the St. Vrain and Lefthand Creeks, this order extends throughout the Longmont city limits and applies until cancelled or revoked.For the St Vrain this means from Golden Ponds to 119th. For Lefthand this means from Hover to where it merges with the St Vrain.
