HOLBROOK - In the past, scammers have been known to send emails, but one Long Islander says they are now trying to hack computers to steal personal information.

The resident spoke to News 12 Long Island and said she received a call on her cell phone and at her home. 

The caller claimed to be with Windows tech support and told her that her computer was sending error messages that they wanted to fix. 

Microsoft is telling customers to treat any similar phone calls with skepticism.
