A scam attempt was reported to Upper Sandusky Police Wednesday.
According to the report, a resident was told by a caller that it would cost $199 to keep his laptop computer on. The resident said the call came from a man who claimed to be with Kangaroo Tech, and that they were contracted with Microsoft.
Police called Microsoft and were told they never heard of the company nor do they contract with them.
The resident did not pay the amount requested by the caller.
