Be aware of credit card fraud

Success - Article sent! close

People, please be aware. I recently received a call about my insurance being overdue and faced cancellation if not paid immediately.

I know when my premiums are due. The call stated my company and said they would hold while I got my credit card number. I don't think so.

I called my agent and was told no such call was made from them.

I gave them no information. But, how many people do? They get one credit card number and more than likely get more. Never, ever, give anyone that calls you any information about account numbers.

They are good, very convincing and I'm sure take away everything you've worked for and have been able to save.

Such calls should be ignored. If in doubt call your company to verify. It's a SCAM that can ruin your life.

Save the number calling and report it to the police.
