The Mercer County Sheriff's Department has received numerous complaints from the New Windsor area of potential fraud. Residents and businesses are being randomly targeted by unknown individuals claiming that the resident's computer has been hacked into or is infected with a virus. The caller then requests credit card and other personal information.

Sheriff David Staley advises that these calls are a scam and urges all residents and business owners not to release private information to individuals unfamiliar to them.
