away and right now - many people are getting election phone calls... as those calls pick up - be careful what you share over the phone. contact 6's jenna sachs is here with the details. many political campaigns are making calls to get you to the polls... but con-artists are calling too. there are at least three election phone scams to look out for. the first one is donation scams. people call asking you to support a candidate and then ask for a donation via a credit or debit ca your money is really going. if you want to donate to a campaign - go directly to a candidates website. the second type of election calls you should be cautious of are survey and poll scams. the caller will claim they are surveying for a political party or candidate. they may even ask a question that sound legit. the catch?? the caller will try to entice you to participate by offering a prize and that's where things get tricky. "oftentimes they'll say that you'll get a gift card or airline ticket for completing this survey, so at the end of the survey the
4:42 pm
your credit card information this will allow us to defer the taxes for the prize." as a rule of thumb for any prize, sweepstakes or lottery - you will never be asked to pay a fee or taxes to claim your prize. if you are asked to do so - it's a scam. the third election scam to be aware of has to do with voter registration. callers claim you need to update information or it's no longer valid. this can lead to identity theft. information to someone you don't know. now -- phone scams aren't just limited to election season. so keep this advice in mind anytime you get calls like these. if you want to know the common scams in your area or report a scam -- you can do so with the better business bureau scam tracker. we've got a link to that at brad and stephanie - back to you. do you have a consumer issue or investigation idea? give jenna a call!! the number is on you screen or you can file a complaint on the contact
