Be on the lookout for phishing calls from numbers with your area code

There have been an increasing number of reported phishing scams via numbers in people’s area codes. Scammers call from numbers that include the first six digits of your own in an effort to get you to answer. As more people answer, the more lucrative it becomes for the scammers, so be sure to ignore numbers you don’t recognize, even if they seem like they’re from your area.
