SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) – The South Windsor Police Department is warning about scam phone calls dealing with Apple computer and phone products.

A woman told police that she received a voicemail that stated she needed to call a customer support number.

The woman looked up the real Apple support phone number and called Apple directly.

Apple told her that everything was fine with her account, and that they did not contact her.

The woman called back the number left in the voicemail, and when she asked the person how they obtained her Apple identification number, the person hung up.

The South Windsor Police Department recommends you always independently verify any suspicious phone calls, text or email.

If you receive a scam phone call, just hang up.
