You get a call from your auto insurance company and they say that they can’t process your payment and they need more information from you. Right away you are scared or nervous that you won’t have car insurance, so you give them your bank account number and other personal information they ask for.
DON’T DO IT! It’s a scam.
Victims in Ohio are getting phone calls just like this. Minnesotans beware and don’t fall prey to these criminals. With the economy as poor as it is today, don’t give out your hard earned money to some low life criminal trying to steal your identity.
If you receive a call like this and it is not from your insurance agent, insist on getting a name and telephone number to call them back. Then call your insurance agent to check to make sure this is not a bogus call.
Remember, never give your personal or financial information out over the phone.
