We received information that someone is calling people and claiming to be with a cable company provider asking people if they will be home on a certain date. The person is claiming that there will be an internet outage. This is a scam. Do not give this person any person information or let them remote into your computer. Do not let them know you will not be at home.
On a side note, we are still getting reports of people buying gift cards for scammers. If a person that you don’t know asks for a gift card, it’s a scam. There are many variations of this scam but the end result is you giving them the gift card and PIN.
