Phone Scammers are making calls from numbers that look like they could be from a neighbor, or are strangely close to your own number. NBC News’ Jeff Rossen explains how it could be scammers stealing your information. They can also call your friends and family faking that the call is coming directly from you, with your photo and everything. Never give personal information over the phone unless you made the call yourself. If someone calls you for personal information, hang up and you call them back, that way you are guaranteeing who you are talking too.
