Presser: Don't Fall For It


"You know they are scammers, and I know they are scammers, but guess what? 

Vulnerable people fall for these scammers every day. 

Get the word out, “don’t trust 'em!”

If you suspect a scam: hang up,block the call, do not trust your caller ID, call the institution from a verified phone number, NEVER pay with a gift card, Bitcoin, or Cryptocurrency."
