You can’t always trust Caller ID on your phone. Spoofing, the latest scam, makes you think a phone call is coming from a legitimate company when it is really coming from a scammer. Some members have received calls from spoofed numbers asking bills be paid over the phone immediately, offering a deal on a vacation rental by giving credit card information and more.
“We are hearing of these scams more and more,” said Greg Mullis, vice president of corporate services. “If you get a call from Tri-County asking to you pay your bill immediately over the phone, we encourage you to hang up and call our office directly. It’s also important to report this to the police.” (56777001)
