Scammers Pretends TV Cable and Internet Service Providers

Scammers are scamming with new tricks. If you are a little careless, you can fall into their clutches and bring disaster.

Recently, the Federal Trade Commission has received many reports of scammers posing as cable and internet service providers to steal personal information.

Research shows that scammers mostly target middle-aged and 65-year-olds. The reason being that people in this age group are financially secure, have good credit and are easy to trust. Using this opportunity, scammers steal personal information through phone calls pretending to be cable or internet service providers.

Their scamming skills are so masterful that in many cases even the most knowledgeable people can be duped.

How to know if a caller is a scammer

  • Regardless of the service provider, no one will call you and ask for personal information. If personal information is required, you will ask them for a time before providing it so that you can contact them again later. If you see that he is not giving you extra time, he is in a hurry, you will understand that he is a scammer.
  • Take time to check the company's address, website, social media and the number called on the phone by searching Google.
Never share passwords, credit/debit card numbers, PINs, etc. with anyone. Because, no company or service provider will want them. Only in case of online payment they have to pay in prescribed system.

Scammers are inventing new scamming methods. Their tactics are not always easy to understand. Because, as technologically advanced as they are, they are adept at influencing others through words. So you should always be very aware.
