purple doctor martens AT customers warned about new scam
ABILENE, Texas AT customers are being warned about giving information over the phone.
A new scam is targeting the customer’s service provider.
Scammers will call using an 866 number and ask customers to participate in a short survey about the phone service,
promising a $20 credit to the next bill.
At the end of the survey, the scammer will ask for the last four digits of the customer’s social security number.
Using that information,
they’ll open additional phone lines and charge thousands of dollars to the victim’s bill.
“If it’s happened to you and you’ve given out the information, contact your carrier immediately and let them know,
” said Steve Abel of the Better Business Bureau. “Ask for the fraud department and let them know what’s going on so you won’t be stuck with a big bill.”
