  • Never answer calls from unknown numbers. If you don’t recognize the number, don’t answer. Scammers often use spoofed numbers, which means that the number that appears on your caller ID may not be the actual number of the person calling you.
  • Be suspicious of calls that ask for personal information. Scammers often try to get your personal information, such as your bank account number or Social Security number. Never give out this information to someone you don’t know.
  • Hang up on calls that are pressuring you to act immediately. Scammers often try to pressure you into making a decision quickly, such as sending money or providing personal information. Don’t be afraid to hang up and call the company back on a number that you know is legitimate.
  • Report scam calls to the authorities. If you receive a scam call, report it to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). You can also report scam calls to your local law enforcement agency.

By following these tips, you can help to protect yourself from scam calls.
