Phone scams/frauds

If some­one calls you, and of­fers a free va­ca­tion, or new credit card, or asks for your credit card num­ber — be cau­tious!!

Your bank would al­ready have that in­for­ma­tion, and would not call you at home.

Un­less you have pur­chased a ticket to win a trip or car or some prize, then you prob­a­bly haven’t won any­thing. Th­ese are scams. If you sus­pect you have re­ceived one of th­ese calls, con­tact phone busters at: 1 888-495-8501.
