Telephone scam alert
I’ve gotten two calls on our landline from a woman claiming to be from ADT and offering to enter me into a contest to win a free ADT home security contract. She asks “Do you currently have a contract with ADT?” We already have a contract, but I’m sure she would have loved to find out if we didn’t. She even asked if it was active.
I’m sure the scammers are using other security companys’ names in addition to ADT. Very creepy to think that someone’s just going through the telephone book and finding out which addresses might be easier targets for break-ins.
Apologies if this has been covered previously in the forum, but I did a search and didn’t find anything.
