New York, NY (PRWEB) August 16, 2013
PhoneNumber.us.org has started a major initiative to educate their customers about how to avoid becoming the victim of telephone solicitation scams, the company announced yesterday.
“One of the main reasons people use our service is because they are worried about becoming victims of telephone scams,” a PhoneNumber.us.org spokesman said. “We have a lot of experience in dealing with these types of scams, and want to pass along the protective information we have at our disposal.”
In a typical phone solicitation scam, someone calls a potential victim and claims to represent their financial institution or a charity they support, the PhoneNumber.us.org spokesman said.
“Then they either con you into making a donation to a fake charity, or else talk you into giving out financial information that they can use to drain your bank account,” the PhoneNumber.us.org spokesman said. “It can be devastating to people financially.”
The guide, which will be emailed to existing customers and released on the company's social media outlets, will explain how each and every type of phone scam works, the PhoneNumber.us.org spokesman said.
“Then it will tell them what they can do to avoid becoming a scam victim,” he said. “And let them know when it is appropriate to contact the authorities to make sure these criminals do not target anyone else.”
PhoneNumber.us.org created the guide with the help of former law enforcement officials, he said.
“We want to give people real tools to protect themselves,” he said.
