Temple Family gets “got” by Phone Scam of Almost $2400!
So, if I got a call from a woman saying her son got arrested and she needs $2400 to bail him out, I am first going to ask questions:
A) Who are you again?
B) How did you get my number?
C) Hell to the no- you got the wrong number don't call here no moe!
But that's just me.
According to the Temple Daily Telegram, a very generous woman from Temple got that exact call. And, because the caller on the other end was reportedly "so persuasive", she sent the scammer almost $2,400!
Temple authorities caution you to not give out personal information, shred all bank statements and sensitive information and to make sure you confirm the identity of a family member or friend who is calling you requesting to send money.
