KBI warns of ‘spoofing scam’
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says its number is being spoofed.
Caller ID spoofing is when a caller deliberately falsifies the number on your caller ID to disguise their identity. With the KBI receiving multiple reports, the agency released some tips to remember:
- The KBI might call you related to a case, or to arrange an interview, but will not request your social security number, date of birth, account number, or any other personal information.
- Never give your personal information out over the phone.
- If a caller is acting suspicious, hang up and verify the number’s authenticity.
- If you have been a victim of spoofing, report it to the FCC.
