  • Galva Police are warning area residents about a possible scam attempt.
    According to Chief Jerry Clark on Tuesday, a Galva woman was contacted by phone by someone who claimed to represent Microsoft.
    The caller said viral problems had occurred with Microsoft's Windows software, and he wanted her to turn on her computer so he could access it and clean off the virus, perhaps to steal personal information.
    The woman said the man gave a call-back number of 888-514-1650.
    Clark said information about the scam is found at 800notes.com, which lists the caller as having a phone number of 212-000-3459.
    Clark said the name of the scamming company is reportedly 1StopE Arcade.com.
