JEFFERSON, GA (CBS46) -

A Jefferson man logged on to his computer and got a pop-up message that it was infected. He rebooted, but the message was still there, so he called the phone number on the screen.

The number was not to a computer tech repairman, but to a computer tech scammer, who took $6700 from the man.

The victim tells his story to Better Call Harry to warn others about the scam.
