Do not call registry scam


A scam is making its way around central Illinois.


Investigators say scammers are calling to help put you on the "do not call list," to take advantage of your personal information.  According to the Better Business Bureau the representative says he is offering you the chance to register your phone number in order to limit telemarketing calls. Several versions of this exist. In one, scammers ask for personal information, such as your name, address and Social Security number. In another, scammers try to charge a fee to join the registry.  


If you receive this call or any other suspicious calls you should notify the police.
