Phone fraud warning

On Tuesday 9/12 a senior citizen in our community was scammed via a phone call she received a call from someone claiming to work in debt consolidation and the caller promised to provide her with a credit card for 0% interest.  The victim then provided her credit card information for a number of accounts including her date of birth and social security number.  This call came from 1-888-778-5736.  

Please NEVER give out personal financial information over the phone under any circumstances.  If you receive this type of call and give out any information immediately call the police department and freeze your financial accounts. A credit monitoring service is helpful to see if someone is fraudulently using your information.  

Please talk to your neighbors, friends, family, especially our senior citizens, who may be more vulnerable to the scam artists who take advantage of people such as what happened in this case.
