Signs of a Scam
Often, scammers that operate on the phone don’t give their victim time to think about their terrain or area of play all they want is for the victim to say “yes”. But some can be so crafty and sly that they go as far as giving you information about their company online and may even direct you to the website and send you information featuring “contented customers” to make you that the company truly exists.
Here are some warning signs to help you spot telemarketing scams. If you come across these lines, all you do is to say “no, thank you”, hang up and call the Federal Trade Commission.
