WAUKESHA — The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department has issued a warning to those receiving soliciting calls from fake Microsoft employees.

Several residents have answered calls from these scammers, telling them that their computers have been taken over by foreign entities and need to be repaired.

Microsoft would not make any unsolicited phone calls about your computer or software fixes.

If you receive one of these calls, hang up.
