Scams have been in the news lately. With the holidays about to roll up on us, fraudulent activity also picks up speed.
Senior citizens are particularly vulnerable to phone-related scams involving Medicare plans at this time of year. November 15- December 31 is the open enrollment/changeover time if people wish to change their drug prescription plans.
However, one scam that everyone 18 and older should be aware of is the Jury Duty telephone scam.
The court systems do not call you to “verify” anything. NEVER give out personal information over the telephone.
If they want you –they send a sheriff’s deputy with a warrant to pick you up.
