Scammers Using Local People's Numbers To Facilitate Scam

Scammers Using Local People's Numbers To Facilitate Scam

My name is Wendy Williamson and my Phone # 814-848-9773. 

If you receive a call that shows W. Williamson and my Phone # on your caller ID, and a message about lowering your interest rate on your credit card, or about something for Senior Citizens, DO NOT give out your information as this is a scam. 

I have notified Denton State Police about this and unfortunately they know about the scam, but there is nothing they can do about it. These scammers are somehow getting ahold of local Phone #s and using them to get people to pick up because it is a local # and trying to scam people.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. 

Wendy

I am getting the same scam call, but the local number comes through as the Coudersport Public Library.

My daughter received several calls on her cell phon last week from scammers. She said the two men she talked to had foreign accents. They told her they were from the IRS and that she owed a large sum of money and had to pay immediately or a warrant would be issued for her arrest. Thankfully, she hung up on them. They tried to call her several more times that day and even the next day. Guess you can't be too careful these days.

These scammers used our name and number to call local people too. When I informed the phone company they said they had never heard of such a thing. We ended up disconnecting our land line.

Despite being on the do not call list, my elderly parents receive several unwanted sales type calls, every day. After signing up for AARP, the calls tripled. Just a heads up. Credit card offers, health care offers, insurance offers, calls from both dem& repub candidates, calls from medical supply companies, etc. I had my land line REMOVED because of these constant nuisance calls.
