Fraud and scams are sadly commonplace and the misuse of phones are another tool of the swindlers. Here are a few, compliments of Scamraiders and Verizon:
Jury duty fraud, calling card theft, identity theft, credit-card number theft, pbx scams, slamming scams, phishing, money transfer scams, and more.
Scamraiders will post to the homepage on Jan. 21, 2011, the "Verizon Fraud Fact Report" and include frequent questions. The Verizon report will be posted at the end of the article for easy downloading. Remember when using the phones, Safety First.
