Attorney General Warns of Another Local Phone Scam
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is warning about another phone scam. This time the phone number that shows up on the Caller ID is your own. It's called "spoofing" and scammers sometimes use that tactic to make you think the call is legitimate. Morrisey says in a news release that technology has made it harder to be certain that the person on the other end of the line is who he says he is. Don't give out personal information to a company you don't know, and if you think you've been scammed, report it to police and call the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division at 800-368-8808.
