Victory State Bank Repeats Telephone-Fraud Warning From Federal Trade Commission
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Victory State Bank is urging consumers to be aware of a fraud warning from the Federal Trade Commission.
“Hi, I’m calling from the Federal Trade Commission to tell you that you have won $250,000…”
Someone who claims to work for the Federal Trade Commission calls to inform you that you have won a lottery or sweepstakes. To receive the prize, all you have to do is pay the taxes and insurance.
The caller asks you to wire money or send a check for an amount between $1,000 and $10,000.
What should you do? Don’t send money or account information, and immediately report the incident to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at www.ftc.gov.
