7/8/2019 - Canton Police Remind You: Telephone Scams are more prevalent than ever




Criminals use a variety of tactics to get access to credit card information so they can commit credit card fraud. One of these tricks is to convince you to give up your credit card or other personal information. Thieves make up a fake situation and convince you that you need to give up some personal information to meet a need.

You receive a phone call from someone who says they're from your credit card company or bank. The caller asks you to confirm or give up some personal information, e.g., your credit card number, credit card security code, social security number, or mother's maiden name. After the call ends, the caller uses the information you gave to make charges on your account or to create a new account in your name. 

Don't give out any information on calls you didn't initiate, no matter how legitimate the call may seem. Scammers can even override your caller ID and have your creditor's name show up. If you think there's a possibility that it's your real credit card issuer, ask if you can return their call. If it's a scam, they're likely to try to convince you to stay on the line.

Don’t let these offenders make you their next victim.  For more information on how to protect yourself and your family, please click on the link below.
