Scammers phish for personal information
A new phone scam has been popping up, but with a strange new twist --- your own number is calling you.
Scammers are using a new tactic to phish for your personal information.
Hundreds of residents in the Central Valley have reported receiving a scam phone call, with the robocaller on the other end asking them for personal information, like the last four digits of their social security number.
In another variation of this scam, the robocaller asks for information pertaining to setting up their voicemail account.
No matter what variation of the call you receive, scammers are only after one thing --- your personal information. The information can potentially help them hack your accounts or steal your identity.
