Tips to avoid phone scams:
NEVER give out personal information, debit/credit card numbers, or wire money as a result of an unexpected or unsolicited call if you cannot validate the caller’s authenticity.
Mountain West Financial, Inc. provides many options for payment; be suspicious if the caller is REQUIRING the use of wiring funds.
Ask the caller for details about his or her name, phone number, company, etc. Your questions may scare them away. If not, document what they tell you, including the date and time you speak with them, caller ID number and anything else that may aid in a possible criminal investigation. Contact your local authorities and Mountain West Financial, Inc. Customer Care Department at (877) 841-0497 to report theft or attempted theft due to scams.
Beware if a caller exhibits irritation, unease, or anger when you question their authority. Notice if their emotion intensifies when you ask to speak with their manager, for their phone number, or to call back later.
