What To Do If You Think You’re Being Scammed Over The Phone
Here’s what should you do if you receive a phone call that raises red flags.
1-Hang up immediately.
2-Call and put your name on the Do Not Call Registry. If you receive a phone call from a caller ID number you don’t recognize, hang up. Better yet, don’t pick up.
3-Go online to find the number for the business that called you and call them back. If the call was legitimate, they’ll connect you with the right person.
4-Report it. To report a phone scam, call 1-877-FTC-HELP.
5-Sign up for a call blocking service.
