Phone scam alert

A few days ago, an elderly lady received a call at 9:00 pm and told her that she owed a large amount of money. The lady told the caller that she didn't owe any money and asked the caller what should she do.

The caller told her to press the number 1 on her phone. She did this and the caller hung up. Then the caller called overseas and the amount for this call was put on the lady's phone bill.

Citizens should be aware of this scam and if anyone receives an unsolicited call and ask them to press a number on their phone, they should hang up.
