MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — A warning from Connecticut State Police, phone scams are on the rise especially getting closer the holiday season.
People say they are getting phone calls from scammers pretending to work for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), cable companies or banks. After they get you on the phone, they ask for your personal information.
Actual agencies like banks and the IRS will only contact you in writing. State police want to remind you never give out sensitive information over the phone. If you get one of these phone calls hang up and report it to police.
