Victory State Bank Points to Phony Government Calls
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.—According to the Federal Trade Commission, recently there has been an upswing in insincere government phone calls asking receivers for money, specifically in the immigrant community. The caller insists on being sent money, claiming to be from a legitimate-sounding government agency.
Victory State Bank wants to help you spot fraudulent government calls and keep your money safe. Remember these tips:
1. The government will never call or text you to ask for money.
2. Use your instincts. If a call seems illegitimate, investigate.
3. Get in touch with a real contact from the government agency that supposedly called you. Alert them of the situation.
4. Be suspicious of any person asking to be wired money or to have money put on a rechargeable credit card. This is the same as sending cash, making the money almost impossible to track.
