BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – A local home medical supply company is warning its customers about a recent phone scam.
Boardman Medical Supply (BMS) said someone is calling customers and asking for credit card information.
The caller says the company is running a special incentive where you can receive a $100 Walmart gift card if you pay $1.95. They then ask for the customer’s credit card information.
Scammers are able to use a business’ name on caller ID through a process called spoofing, making their schemes even trickier.
These calls are not from BMS, which does not offer promotions.
If you receive a call like this, do not give out any personal information and report it to the Federal Trade Commission.
