Microsoft Scam: 04/08/2024 Aldie VA

The complainant reported that he was having issues with his computer, so he googled a number for Microsoft and called the first number he saw. The complainant was told that people in Germany were accessing his computer, and someone was listening through his computer, so he would need to download software called “Ultra View” (remote viewing software). The complainant was also told his banking information had been compromised and needed to withdraw his money and deposit it into a bitcoin ATM in Alexandria. After withdrawing and depositing the money, he realized he was the victim of a scam.
