Apple support scam hits Kearney

KEARNEY – Kearney authorities are warning against a scam where the caller says they’re from Apple Support.

The Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office and the Kearney Police Department have taken reports regarding a scam where the caller will report they are with Apple Support.

The call will normally come from a legitimate number for Apple Support, but it is being spoofed by the scammers.

The caller will ask to take remote control of your computer and then ask for money to unlock it.

Authorities say Apple will never ask for a users Apple ID password or other information in order to provide support.
