I have a strong warning.
Never give out confidential information over the phone.
I’m saying this now because I have had two suspect phone calls during the last few days. One caller came out and asked point blank for my [tag-tec]social security number[/tag-tec] and the second said she was from some sort of [tag-ice]debt consolidation[/tag-ice] company.
Beware and always hang up.
I did hang up and the immediately dialed the second caller’s number which showed up on my Caller I.D screen. It was a disconnected number.
I don’t know how they do it, but I do know they’re looking for more victims.
Here is a very good article showing how to avoid a bank [tag-self]scam[/tag-self].
