MANKATO — The Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office is warning people not to click on unknown links in emails.

The Sheriff’s Office has received multiple recent complaints of ransomware fraud. Scammers send a link that downloads a virus onto a computer and the victim must pay a ransom to remove the virus.

Investigative options are often limited, Sheriff Capt. Paul Barta stated. The scammers conceal their identities and often operate overseas.
