Beware of the latest phone scam

Never give out information

Some residents of the local area have been getting recorded phone messages from "Heather at Account Services" and "Rachel at Card Holder Services," or the like. Beware -- these calls are not legitimate.

If you press a key to get a live operator, you will be connected with a nationwide scam that tries to get people to give out their credit card information so they can "get a lower interest rate."

Even those on the "Do Not Call" list are getting these bogus calls, and the Washington Attorney General's office has been notified.

Please be aware and alert for this scam. And remember, never give out personal information to unknown sources.
