I was just reading about another of the various credit card or bank scams that are going around like a flu virus. But they all have 1 thing in common: they try to get you to give them information over the phone. Don’t do it! But it can be hard to resist. So try this: tell them that you will call them back. But DO NOT ask for a telephone number. Please do not ask for a telephone number. No, no no!!
Be responsible and careful instead. You call the customer service number on your credit card or for your bank. That way you know who you are talking to and have some confidence that your information will not be misused.
Funny thing, too: you never, ever get the person you were just talking to. It’s always a scam. So, don’t talk to them-call them back!
