Don’t be fooled by phone solicitors! Here are some tips when you are on the phone: 1- Beware if they say you have won a prize or foreign lottery. 2- “It’s Free” but they want you to pay shipping & handling on your credit card. 3- Check out any charitable organizations or agencies before you send them money. 4- Beware if they ask you to change any setting on your computer so that they may have access. 5- Be willing to say “no thank you”.
