Be Careful on the Phone!

Be careful of communications you did NOT initiate!

More scams are circulating in the Blair Radio area, including one where a caller, purporting to be from Verizon, says you owe a large amount of money and your phone will be shut off if not immediately paid.

When the recipient of the call claims their bill is current and wants to speak to a customer service specialist, the recipient is then transferred to another person, also a scammer, and is asked for their pin number.

Those that have received this scam call says caller ID will show it as Verizon. You’re encouraged to not give out any personal information in any unsolicited call. If you receive such a call hang up, initiate a call to Verizon yourself to check accounts and contact law enforcement.
