Spring Valley police are warning about a new scam involving Geek Squad.
They say victims are being contacted via email reporting that they owe money for a service plan and that there is a past due balance on their account.
The scammers then instruct the victims to provide their bank account information or pre-paid gift cards. People find out a day later a large sum of money is removed from their account without permission.
Officials are urging people to contact your local police department prior to giving out bank account numbers or transferring money.
If you have any information about these kind of scams, please contact police at (845) 721-9562.
