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 uspis.gov/report or by calling 1-877-876-2455.
