WARNING TELEPHONE SCAMS

Made by: Matthew Householder and Allyson Schall

Are you recieving sketchy phone calls?

Lately, people in our city have been receiving phone calls where people are trying to sell goods that you have not planned on purchasing. This may pressure you into giving up personal information, like your social security number, or credit card information.

Typical Types of Telephone Scams

  • Travel packages at a "low" or "free" cost than end up being a fortune at a hidden cost
  • Fake businesses and investment opportunities
  • "Charitable" causes

How do I prevent this?

  • Do not be gullible
  • Do not give up your information even if they seem convincing
  • Check caller Id
