Beware Phone Scammers Posing As Political Volunteers
Midterm elections are right around the corner, and phone scammers are being opportunistic. AARP warns they're posing as political volunteers. Callers tell potential victims they can register to vote by phone, then ask for personal information. Voter registration by telephone is NOT allowed anywhere in the US. The caller will also seek a "political donation," requesting credit card information. NEVER give personal information to someone who makes contact via an unsolicited call or text.
