In addition to be annoying and time consuming some of telemarketers are real crooks. According to fraud.org here are six signs to recognise fraudent telemarketer and best action is to say thank you and hang up.
- Demanding that you act immediately or else miss out on this great opportunity….
- Promising that you can win money, make money, or borrow money easily…
- Refusing to send written information prior to your purchase or donation
- Trying to scare you into buying something
- Insisting you wire money or a courier will come by to pick up your payment
- Refusing to stop calling after you ask them to stop.
If you recognize one of those signs better say “NO, THANK YOU” and hangup.
