WhitePages.us.org is launching a campaign to teach people how to react if they realize they have become the victim of a phone ripoff, the company announced yesterday.
“No matter how vigilant you are, it is always possible to become a phone ripoff victim,” a WhitePates.us.org spokesman said. “Ripoff artists get better at what they do every day. So, since people can't ever completely avoid a ripoff, it makes sense to us to educate consumers on what to do if and when it happens.”
The WhitePages.us.org guide will take people step by step through what measures they need to take when a ripoff has occurred, he said.
“What a person does in the first few minutes after they think they have become a ripoff victim is essential,” he said. “Not only will it make it easier to catch the ripoff artist, but it can also help protect your credit and your financial status.”
The guide will explain which police agencies to contact to get the ball rolling on solving the problem. It will then explain what to tell credit or debit card issuers about the ripoff in order for them to take immediate action, he said.
“If a ripoff artist gets a hold of credit card numbers, they can be up for sale on the darknet in a matter of hours,” he said. “Making sure those numbers can't be used to rip you off again is critical.”
