Don't Believe Everything You Hear

Don’t Believe Everything You Hear

 

By Elton Camp 

 

You may be in for a nasty surprise, you see

If you blindly accept the name on Caller I.D.



It may show the name of a company you trust

Verifying before giving information is a must



Ask yourself just why it would be on earth

That they ask Social Security and day of birth



A lame explanation the caller may even try

“It’s for your safety that we need to identify.”



And if it’s your credit card number they’d know

Just tell the agent that is not anywhere you go



Or demand a number to which you can call back

That will throw the scamster way off the track



No matter how friendly the caller may sound

Refuse to answer—firmly hold your ground



And an even better way to handle it than that

Just hang up the phone with a very loud splat
