Yet another scam alert –

One of the Shopper News Note’s readers, Lucille Odell, alerted us to yet another scam. That’s the word from Shopper publisher, Holly Belknap.

Ms. Odell alerted us that she received a phone call from a Lindsay telephone number, and the number came up on her caller ID as ‘Ramsey Welding.’ The caller was asking her about her credit history. Ms. Odell did the right thing and hung up without providing any information.

After some research, Ms. Odell discovered that the telephone number associated with Ramsey Welding had been disconnected for years.

Readers are urged NOT to try to call the telephone number that came up on their caller ID. In some situations, it could charge the innocent caller.

In case this happens to any of our readers, they should call 877-438-4338 and report it.
