TELEPHONE SCAM ALERT

TELEPHONE SCAM ALERT ..... 205-230-3206 .....

Just, 02/06/2018 -- 3:19pm, received call from this telephone #, 225-230-3206, my CallerID said Firefight COA. I answered it and the caller started saying he " was calling on behalf of firefighter and wanted a donation, asking for my card number, name ......". I told him I was a firefighter and he hung up.

When I did #69, to check the number and to redial, I got:


"This number has been disconnected or is no longer in service".

So much of this going on.
The callers will spoof the caller-id number, often using one that's local to you so you think it's someone you know.
calling back or reporting the number to DoNotCall doesn't help

I have been on the DO NOT CALL LISTING since it started and still get calls. I even sign up on it every January.
