Consumer Protection warns of phone scam

Robocalls from people offering lower credit card interest rates are popping up all over the state, and Wisconsin's consumer protection department is warning people about them.

Administrator Sandy Chalmers says the calls typically start with a woman calling herself Rachel, Heather, or Clarissa. She says the scam has been around for a while.

Chalmers says the caller is generally either offering a credit card interest lowering service that a person could do for free, or trying to compile a call list. She says if people hang on the line, or ask to speak with a manager, it's likely that their phone number will be added to a telemarketing list.
