Labrador Residents Caution against Telemarketing Scam

Most people share the same frustration when it comes to pesky telemarketers.

A Labrador resident is cautioning people not to provide them with any information.

Jenny Oliver has been a target of the telemarketers.

She says she has been receiving calls from them for about a year now.

And they call at the most annoying times, usually between 5-10pm.

Oliver says she is skeptical of their intentions.

They call with offers of free cruises and the like.

The only requirement to receive your grand prize is your personal information such as credit card numbers.

Oliver says the offer doesn’t seem very legitimate.

She isn’t the only one receiving these calls.

A number of her friends from all across Labrador have been experiencing the same thing.

Oliver suggests that you keep them on the line.

That way it will cost them more money in phone charges, sending a bit of the grief their way.

Constable Brian Tellenbach of the Nain RCMP detachment echoes Oliver’s suggestion of taking caution when dealing with these calls.

He says you should never give out any personal information to an organization that you do not know.
