Beware callers who ask for money
2/25/10 - 12:42 am
Scammers abound! The Catskill Chronicle warns that Sullivan Countyites are getting taken in by telephone con artists, in schemes involving faux cable guys and overseas operators offering "stimulus funds."
The first scam involves a telephone caller posing as a Direct TV salesman offering an upgrade in the satellite service. The caller offers a "special deal" for $9.95 to upgrade the number of channels the person receives. The caller then asks the victim for an ATM card number and the security code on the back, to complete the transaction.
