A consumer alert for computer users - people calling with tech help-- may be just trying to get valuable information.

A new report says scammers are posing as Microsoft or Apple employees-- saying there's a problem with computers.

They scammers say they can fix the non-existing problem - but actually download a virus to the computer that could give them full access to data on the hard-drive.

A lead network specialist with Microtek Systems says companies like Microsoft and Dell will never call a consumer to repair their computer.
