How To Avoid Telephone Scams

Responder Security, Inc. has created this blog post especially for you. Use these tips to help protect yourself, your loved ones, and your valuables.

Your phone rings. You recognize the number, but when you pick up, it’s someone else. Scammers are using fake caller ID information to trick you into thinking they are someone local, someone you trust – like a government agency or police department, or a company you do business with – like your bank or cable provider.

The practice is called caller ID spoofing, and scammers don’t care whose phone number they use. Don’t rely on caller ID to verify who’s calling. It can be nearly impossible to tell whether the caller ID information is real. Here are a few tips for handling these calls:

  • If you get a strange call from the government, hang up. If you want to check it out, visit the official (.gov) website for contact information. Government employees won’t call out of the blue to demand money or account information.
  • Don’t give out – or confirm – your personal or financial information to someone who calls.
  • Don’t wire money or send money using a prepaid debit card. In fact, never pay someone who calls out of the blue, even if the name or number on the caller ID looks legit.
  • Feeling pressured to act immediately? Hang up. That’s a sure sign of a scam.
