Scam e-mails

The FBI sent out warnings about a new type of scam with emails threatening people with extortion.

We spoke with our local expert Michael Strong with Blue Layer IT about what you can do if you get an email like this.

Hackers are using a new tool to get your old password off the dark web to get your attention. Once they have it, they will ask for money to keep the compromising information about you private.

Strong says you should never give them any money and check the firewall you have installed in your home or business.
