(FOX 47) -
A computer scam that threatens to reveal embarrassing content on your computer is making its way to internet users in the area.
The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota says it's been getting reports of a pop window that tells the user it's detected "adult content" on the computer, and the user needs to call a certain number to remove it.
Experts say it's unknown who's behind the scam, but if you get this pop-up, you should just close the page or your internet browser.
