DARIEN, Conn. – At least two Darien residents recently fell victim to a computer repair scam that cost them $500 each, according to police.

The victims received telephone calls from what turned out to be a fictitious computer repair company with a California phone number, saying there was a “security problem” with their home computers.

Police said the victims were then baited into giving the fictitious company their credit card information, and in both cases $500 was fraudulently charged to their accounts.

The exact names of the companies were not known, but police said the names mentioned “PC Support” or “Best PC Doctor.”

Darien police are warning residents to avoid giving out credit card or banking information when contacted over the phone or computer.
