COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - The Michigan State Police say they are warning residents to watch out for a nasty phishing scam in their e-mail. Someone is impersonating the FBI, to extort money from victims, with a very authentic but completely fake message that claims your browser has been locked because of inappropriate use of the computer and that you could face jail or other penalties if you don’t pay a fee within 24-hours. The FBI doesn’t work that way. 

State Troopers say if you get a letter or e-mail asking for personal banking information, hang onto that letter and send a copy to the U.S. Secret Service, the FBI or the U.S.Postal Inspector.
