Caller ID spoofing is making its way to phones near you. Scammers have mastered calling people using a fake name and number that will pop up on your phone.
The call will seem urgent, for example, it could concern something like an account that is about to be cancelled unless you immediately give your bank information or credit card number for payment.
Never give out personal information via an incoming phone call; you never know who is actually on the line. Be a fraud fighter! If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam.
Contact local law enforcement or the AARP Fraud Watch Network at www.aarp.org/fraudwatchnetwork or 1-877-908-3360 to report a scam or for more information on scam and fraud prevention.
