HARRISONBURG,Va. (WHSV)-- A new scam is targeting students who use their phones and laptops frequently.
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said, scammers send a letter, telling the person they have been downloading information. They scare customers into thinking they have committed a crime and ask them to send a check.
Ryan Estos said he uses these sites frequently and is surprised by this.
"You never know what you are getting on the internet now-a-days. People are always trying to scheme you and be you. And, I just feel like I can't trust anything on the internet," said Estos.
If this happens to your family, Morrisey suggests calling the company to make sure it is legitimate, before sending the check.
