A phone-based scam has been targeting Wilton residents recently, according to multiple members of the Wilton 411 Facebook group. If you or a family member receive a phone call from someone claiming to represent Microsoft — or any unknown caller — do not give out any private information, say Wilton police.
“You don’t want to provide any information to anyone if you do not know with whom you are speaking. Don’t provide any personal information. Contact Wilton police and we’ll take it from there. We have the resources to coordinate with other agencies, and to conduct an investigation,” said Detective Kip Tarrant.
