Let me guess – you have probably received a call about a car warranty or a credit card that you’ve never heard of? Am I right? Well, you should know that those are scam callers trying to take something from you.
The Casper Police Department has seen an uptick in reports about scam callers in the last few years. They also expect an increase of them each year around the holidays. But, don’t you worry now. They are here to tell you how to identify them and how to protect yourselves.
The best ways to identify scam callers are if they request a payment over the phone. Or, they can even ask for personal information like a Social Security Number, or claim to be a law enforcement official. These are all red flags.
Or, just don’t answer a call if you don’t know the number. Just let it go to voicemail. If it’s someone that you want to call back, you can certainly do so.
And last, but not least important – you need to talk to vulnerable adults that may not be aware of scam calls. People are always welcome to make the Casper Police Department aware of scam calls by reporting them. Thank you for your time.
