Holiday scam calls are on the rise, according to the Director of the Bucks County Consumer Affairs Department.Mike Bannon says, ask questions when solicited for donations and be suspicious. Bannon adds, sometimes its best not to answer the call, but if you do pick up the phone.
“If you decide it’s some kind of criminal action, you can put a lock on that call if it’s Verizon, just push star-69. It will save that phone number and we can try to track that down.”
