Equifax Phone Scam
It has been a week since the Equifax breach was made public and we want to keep you updated on issues that may arise from this event. Fraudsters are now getting into the act, and the following article appeared on the FTC Website this week. Please review the information and be diligent in your efforts to remain Safe and Secure.
Equifax Isn't Calling
- Don’t give personal information. Don’t provide any personal or financial information unless you’ve initiated the call and it’s to a phone number you know is correct.
- Don’t trust caller ID. Scammers can spoof their numbers so it looks like they are calling from a particular company, even when they’re not.
- If you get a robocall, hang up. Don't press 1 to speak to a live operator or any other key to take your number off the list. If you respond by pressing any number, it will probably just lead to more robocalls.
