Attorney General Warns About Robo Calls

Attorney General Roy Cooper is warning people about prerecorded telemarketing calls from outfits with generic sounding names like
"account services," "customer accounts" or "card services." The robo call tells people that they qualify for better rates on their credit card. They're then asked to give an operator their credit card and bank information. Cooper says this is a scam, an attempt to steal your identity. So far, it appears these calls are coming from overseas, using spoofed caller id numbers. Robo calls are illegal in North Carolina, unless a live person asks first if you want to hear a recorded sales pitch.
