CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW ?
It’s not a Verizon commercial: If you receive a phone call from someone asking “can you hear me,” hang up. You’re a potential victim in the latest scam circulating around the U.S.
There are two very good articles listed below that explain this very well. I contacted the Nebraska Attorney General’s office and they are aware of this, but at this time they are not exactly sure why this is happening, but they suspect it is for no good purposes.
For further information please see the below articles.
In the past several days the Grand Island Police Department has been involved in investigating many frauds in the Grand Island area. Just because your are involved in a fraud case, it doesn't mean that you have done something wrong. Sometimes it involves a credit card and your credit card may not have even left your hand. It still can happen.
Just a friendly reminder to keep your credit cards and debit cards in a safe place. If you give you PIN# to anyone else, then you lose control over who else has your PIN#. It goes back to the saying that two people can keep a secret as long as one of them is dead. You can put a fraud alert on your accounts and you only need to contact one of the three credit bureaus to do this.
