Telephone scams

  • Do not feel pressured into making a decision over the telephone. It’s okay to say “no”.
  • Never give out personal or bank details out over the telephone.
  • Contact is often unexpected and out of the blue; scammers are persistent but friendly.
  • Hang up if a caller is vague about their company information.
  • Do not pay in advance for goods in response to unexpected telephone call.
  • If you receive a lot of telephone calls, consider a call blocker to filter out unwanted calls.
