The Northbridge Police Department and its officers would like to thank everyone for their support. We are grateful and humbled and are here to serve you.

"Bad guys are coming up with new ways to scam you out of your money all the time. Their latest trick is a Tech Support scam that puts a big warning screen on your computer, claiming that if you do not call the support number, your whole hard disk will be deleted in 5 minutes.

There are variations of this scam that claim they are your Internet Service Provider, or claim to be Microsoft and you need an urgent update you need to call in for, or they show you a blue screen that claims your computer needs to be repaired. There is always a number to call, and these scammers will try to put hundreds of dollars on your credit card.

If you see this on a computer at the house, ignore these messages and do not call the fake tech support number!"

Don't fall for it!

Fake Netflix App is Actually Ransomware

Kaspersky warned on their blog: "People are downloading a new app, looking to get free access to Netflix accounts. What they’re actually getting is a malware strain called Netix that encrypts users’ data and demands $100 in bitcoins to unlock their files.

The program, called “Netflix Login Generator” is downloaded by users looking to gain access to Netflix without paying. The app purportedly has leaked Netflix accounts, which users can use to access the streaming service for free. In reality, all it does is provide fake account credentials that don’t work.

Once installed, the app shows you what looks like a login-password pair generator, but that’s just a distraction; it’s actually busy encrypting your data. Once it’s finished with that, up pops a ransom note. So remember when something sounds very enticing and perhaps too good to be true, it usually is.

Do not let social engineering tricks manipulate you into downloading and executing applications that you really should not trust.
