I get multiple scam calls every week, probably because I pick up (I can't see caller id). One actually called me by a name I haven't had for over 40 years.
I am embarrassed that I actually fell for one (I thought I was more savvy about scam calls) I got a call from the electric company that they were shutting my service for non-payment. If I didn't pay right then, I would have to come to the office and also have to pay a $175 reconnection fee. This was in the middle of a cold snap, I had no way of getting to the office, so I stupidly gave a credit card number. Fortunately I got my head together in a few minutes and called the electric company....there was no problem with my account. I immediately called the credit card company and they closed the account. There was a $312 charge already there but thank goodness I was not held responsible. I still can't believe I fell for that.
