Avoiding Cell Phone Scams

by The 100 Companies

We’ve all received that robo-call saying we won something like a free cruise, but here’s what you should know about these scams:

• The company offering this deal is an F-rated company with hundreds of complaints.

• If you give them your credit card number, they’ll charge an initial fee and send you a companion airline ticket which you can only use if you purchase a full-fare ticket.

• When you arrive you’ll be charged several fees and be forced to sit through hours of timeshare pitches.

What seems too good to be true usually is, so be wary.
