SPRINGDALE (KFSM) – The Springdale Police Department has released information on a new phone scam hitting area residents.

A scammer has been calling Springdale residents and pretending to be with a company called iYogi, which is a real business that repairs computers, according to the Springdale Police Department.

The scammer has been calling subscribers pretending to be a representative of the company and asking them to renew their service by paying through Western Union, authorities said.

One of the biggest signs of a scam is if the caller asks for an unusual payment, according to authorities.

    While it’s possible that legit companies would call people about their product or service, I haven’t heard of any company that would ask a customer to pay for the service through WU. If I get a call like that, I’d be suspicious. I’ve read several cases reported to Callercenter.com and I think it’s what made me skeptical about these anonymous sales calls.
