Lt. Tim Robinson Talks About Phone Scams
Your phone rings and it’s a local number, so you answer it.
Only to find out, you’ve been duped. It was a robocall – somebody trying to sell you something or scam you. Has that ever happened to you? Lt. Tim Robinson with the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office joins us to provide some insight on that.
It’s been called “neighbor-spoofing.” Unsuspecting people answer what seems to be a legitimate phone call, but it’s not. Lt. Tim says to hang up, report fraudulent and nuisance callers and register for the National Do Not Call Registry.
