IMPORTANT RESIDENT NOTICE!
GGOD PEOPLE GETTING SCAMMED INFORMATION



Dear Residents,


Last month we commenced our Good People Getting Scammed newsletter article series.   We explained why the senior population is often a target for fraud schemes.  Among the reasons is that people growing up before the 1960’s are raised to be polite and back then being polite often meant not saying “no”, or at least not saying no without apologizing for it. 


Last month we covered IRS Impersonation Scams.   This month we will focus on the dreaded unsolicited call, including robocall.  As mentioned last month, there are plenty of con artists looking to swindle you just because you are so nice.  So, try practicing a simple “no” and if that’s too difficult, a “no thank you”.  Better yet just hang up the telephone on these crooks!  


There are many different versions of these robocalls and/or unsolicited phone calls. 


One common version is when a scammer calls to inform a victim of an expired car warranty. 


Another version involves a request to donate to a cause such as fighting breast cancer.  Sometimes the caller’s phone number will even show up on the caller-ID as “Women’s Cancer” or another cause that may look legitimate. 


Yet another version involves a scammer calling to inform the victim that they have won $1 million dollars but in order to receive it they would first need to pay $200 in fees or taxes.   Often victims are instructed to purchase iTunes gift cards to in order to receive their prize.  After purchasing the gift card, the victim is asked to read the numbers on the back of the cards to the person on the phone.  This allows the scammer to steal the funds off the card. 


With these scam scenario’s there will be ultimately be a request for payment or credit card number.  There is always a sense of urgency. 


The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has published the following tips for consumers to avoid being deceived by caller-ID spoofing:


Ø  Do not give out personal information in response to an incoming call.  Identity thieves are clever: they often pose as representatives of banks, credit card companies, creditors, or government agencies to convince victims to reveal their account numbers, Social Security numbers, mothers’ maiden names, passwords, and other identifying information.


Ø  If you receive an inquiry from a company or government agency seeking personal information do not provide it.  Instead hang up and call the phone number on your account statement, in the phonebook, or on the company’s or government agency’s website to find out if the entity that supposedly called you really needs the requested information from you.
