Telephone Scams

Many scams can be avoided by simply not taking calls from someone you do not know. Put your number on the National Do Not Call Registry. While this won’t stop scammers from calling, you will know that someone calling to sell you something is violating state and federal do-not-call laws. Legitimate businesses should be honoring the Do Not Call list. Scammers ignore it. Putting your number on the list helps to “screen” your calls for legitimacy.
