Q. What do I do if I receive messages on my phone trying to scam me out of money or credit card information?
Dear Juneau Resident,
Don't answer and delete. You might be able to block the number, though these scams change numbers often. These calls are annoying and extremely difficult to investigate and get to charging anyone....especially if the scam is unsuccessful. Some of these scams come out of other countries and those are even more of a challenge. The best thing to do is be skeptical and never give detailed personal or financial information over the phone or on the internet.
