Campaign Calling Scams

(BBB)-It's definitely the season for political ads. Scam calls asking if they can count on your financial support are being received.

One Mitt Romney supporter received a bogus call asking her to "help Mitt fight for traditional marriage this election." Another scam to watch out for is a phone call or email claiming someone's checking your eligibility to vote and as proof they want your credit card, or your Social Security Number.

· Don't respond to emails asking for your financial information.
· Slow down-if it's a good cause today, it will be a good cause tomorrow. And the election is still months away.
