Scammers try new angle
There is a new scam doing the rounds
where offenders are using the tele-
phone in order to defraud money from
The fraudsters say they're calling
from a government agency or a com-
pany, and that several thousand
dollars is owed to the person. All that
is required to obtain this money, they
say, is a small payment of a few hun-
dred dollars to cover costs.
Once the few hundred dollars is
sent, the scammers either disappear
completely or find an excuse to ask for
a little more money, and a little more
until the well runs dry.
If you get a phone call like this,
obtain as much information as you can
without offering any personal infor-
mation. Note down any names and
phone numbers you are provided with,
and give these details to the police.
For a government agency or other
business you can always call back on
the phone number from the directory
to check the story -- never assume that
a phone number provided to you by the
caller is legitimate.
Above all, never send money to
someone without first making sure
they are legitimate.
A good rule of thumb is if it sounds
too good to be true, it probably is.
