BBB warns of political robocall scams


(CNN) – The Better Business Bureau is warning of a scam targeting those who want to contribute to political campaigns.

The BBB says the scam works like this… You get a robocall supposedly from a campaign asking you to give money, only it’s not a campaign. It’s a scammer.

If you say yes, the call then transfers you to a live person who takes your credit card information. That information can then be used to steal your ID.

The BBB suggests screening your calls and staying away from unsolicited robocalls.
