Fraud Alert: Beware of This "Missed Delivery" Flier

fraud scamPeople throughout Connecticut and the country are coming home to find a misleading flier stuck to their door. The flier says that there is a package for you and that you must schedule a delivery. Do not call the number on this flier. There is no package on the other end of the phone, just someone trying to take your information and your money.

Unfortunately, scams like this aren't likely to go away. The best way to fight fraud is to stop and think things through. Scammers will tell you that you need to act quickly or you will lose out in hopes that you will leap before you look. Real organizations don't surprise you with an emergency. Never provide personal or financial information in response to an unsolicited email, call or flier left at your door. This flier didn't have an organization on it, even though it was designed to look like a UPS missed delivery notice. If you are contacted by someone saying they are from an organization you work with, like UPS, look up the organization's number for yourself and call them to verify.

If you encounter this or any other scam, contact the state Department of Consumer Protection or the Federal Trade Commission.
