Attorney General Patrick Morrisey Warns Residents About Telemarketers Spoofing Caller ID
Monday, June 9, 2014 - 04:29 Updated 2 years ago From a News Release by WV Attorney General Patrick Morrisey
“Our Office has seen this kind of scam before, where the scammers manipulate Caller ID so it appears as though the call is coming from a utility company, law enforcement or government agency,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “Technology has made it more difficult to be certain that the person on the other end of the line is who he says he is.”
When dealing with all unsolicited phone calls, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Never give the caller any personal information.
- If the caller demands payment for something, such as a past due bill, get as much detail as you can and call the creditor directly.
- Don’t feel pressured by threats. Stay calm and get as much information as possible, then notify law enforcement and the Office of the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division.
If you believe you have been a victim of identity theft or your personal information has been stolen, please call the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 800-368-8808.
