***Phone Scams*** On almost a daily, we receive a report of a new phone scam! From winners of fake lotteries, to family members in jail needing money, to charity funds, and even utility bill scams. The number of solicitors trying to steal a dollar out of the pocket of anyone who answers the phone is endless. A few safety tips (on a list of many) include: -Never give out personal identifying information -Never give out your credit card information -If in doubt, check it out. Verify charity's online or request a call back number -If it is too good to be true... it probably is! -If you don't recognize the number, don't answer. Let them leave a message. The information included is from the Federal Trade Commission. You can check out more information or report scams online at consumer.ftc.gov
