Kyle Frick with Mid Oregon Credit Union in Bend is warning of a scam that seems to be tricking a lot of people lately.

 

"The newest thing that we're hearing about is that people are getting phone calls where they are told they will get one personal bill paid for by the federal government through a new economic development program supported by President Obama.  So anytime it sounds too good to be true- it usually is."

 

In cases like these the scammmers use phone calls, emails, even door to door visits to say they just need some personal information in order to process the claim for the "free" payment.

 

Besides the danger of giving out personal information like your Social Security number, customers also run the risk of not paying a utility bill or other important bill on time and could incur late fees or even have their services shut off.

 

Frick says its really important that you "know who you're doing business with."

 

He was a guest on 1110 KBND's "Your Town" Wednesday morning.
