Many people trust phone calls, especially if the person on the other side of the line knows even a small piece of information. Like email, phishing attempts can yield surprising results. Other fraud takes the form of involuntary commitment and contract approval.
Here are a few tips to recognize a phone scam:
1. Never give out your credit card number on the phone unless you initiated the call to a reliable company that you know.
2. Always ask for written information before you agree to anything.
3. If you suspect that “something’s not right”, get off the phone right away.
4. Don’t provide information that the company calling should already know.
5. Avoid high-pressure sells.
