Scammers are working the phones yet again, this time identifying themselves as representatives of Quimper Community Federal Credit Union in Port Townsend. According to a woman who called our office, the cons claim that an account has been compromised and encourage the customer to stay on the line to talk to a security person.

The Seattle P-I also interviewed me in regard to a similar phone scam where a con already knows your credit card number and wants you to provide the three-digit security code on the back. Don’t do it. When in doubt, hang up and call your credit card company directly using the phone number on your card or statement.
