Darien police have received two complaints about a telephone scam involving a fictitious computer repair company.

Police said the victims are informed that there is a "security problem" with their home computers and then are baited into providing the caller with their credit card number over the telephone. In both instances, police said, the victims' credit card accounts have been fraudulently charged in excess of $5,000.

Police said the caller may be using a company name such as "PC Support" or "Best PC Doctor" with a California area code.

Police remind residents to never disclose credit card or banking information when contacted via telephone or computer.
