Another Phone Scam Warning | Video| 10/25/2012
North Dakota`s Attorney General says if you receive a phone call about possible disruptions to your cell phone service, it`s probably a scam. Wayne Stenehjem says someone claiming to be a customer service technician will offer a credit on your phone bill if service is disrupted. And as is the case in so many other scams, the caller is really phishing for your personal information, including your account number and password.
If the scammer gets that information, he can change your account, hijack your phone number, make expensive international calls and add international data streaming plans that can cost hundreds of dollars. Again, never give personal information to someone who calls you.
