Watch out for phone and other scams

Many people continue to get phone calls from scammers trying to get their personal information. Crystal City attorney Scott Harness says don’t ever fall for these calls when they come in.

Harness says always ask questions when receiving calls from those posing as collection agencies.

Harness says to contact your attorney or your local law enforcement agency to find out if the call is valid. Also, don’t fall for scammers attempting to get information through text messages as well, as creditors and debt collectors will not contact you in that manner.
