AMARILLO -- The Better Business Bureau warns the public of a phone scam that could lead to identity theft.

BBB says a caller claiming to be with a tech company such as Microsoft claims there's a virus on your computer.
The caller then directs you to a website to download a program to fix the problem. 
This gives the scammer access to your computer and personal information. 
The BBB says to be on alert and know that these types of calls are fake.
