Scam Alert: A Message from Calvert County State’s Attorney Robert Harvey

Robert Harvey, Calvert County State’s Attorney, wants to alert customers of AT&T/DirecTV to a possible scam that is occurring in our community.  Some customers have received official-looking materials in the mail telling them that their bill is going to be increased by $12 per month unless they call a specified telephone number.  When the number is called, the user is asked to provide a social security number.  This is a scam!  AT&T/DirecTV never asks for a social security number and is not sending these documents in the mail.  If you receive such a letter, do not fall for this trick.  You should immediately report postal fraud to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at or by calling 1-877-876-2455.
