Beware of telemarketing calls

Beware of telemarketing calls from any utilities, banking, credit card institutions saying things like 'electric company over charged you", "we need you to confirm your credit card/bank account number", etc.... These are phishing scams for information which always sees an uptick during times of emergencies when people are more vulnerable.

Just hang up, please do not give out any information. The call may say it comes from local phone numbers but these are usually fake numbers that if you call back, you cannot get through.

Beware of this and any other type of utilities call saying they overcharged you, or need additional information like bank account numbers or social security numbers. DO NOT GIVE OUT PERSONAL INFORMATION. If you know a senior who does not have access to a computer who has not seen this, please pass this information on to them.
