PhoneLookup.us.com will soon launch an education guide designed to make sure that consumers can identify and avoid telephone charity scams, the company announced yesterday.
“One of the most enduring ripoffs in America is the charity phone scam,” a PhoneLookup.us.com spokesman said. “They continue because Americans believe in helping other people. But there are ways to avoid them, and we at PhoneLookup.us.com want to teach people the basics so they don't let their good intentions rob them of their hard-earned money.”
The guide will take consumers step by step through how each and every variation of telephone charity scams work, he said. It will then show them simple things they can do to make sure that people only give money to real charity solicitors.
“The truth is that many charities do need to use telemarketing to raise funds,” he said. “So people shouldn't automatically dismiss every person who calls up saying they represent a charity. Instead, they should discover the basic ways of making sure the person on the other end of the phone isn't simply trying to line their own pockets.”
The guide will be published on the members' area of their site, posted on their blog, and released through social media, he said.
“We want to do what we can to make telephone charity scams a thing of the past,” he said. “People should be able to give money to worthwhile organizations without worrying about getting ripped off.”
