Evertek wants to advise all customers to be watchful for scams of all types. We are seeing customers having issues that come from both emails they receive and phone calls that come in to them.
If you don't know the person contacting you, either by phone or email, it is best to do some verification to make sure they are someone trustworthy. Don't provide any personal, financial or other information to someone by email or phone - until you confirm who they are. Even then, it is best to hang up and call the business or organization which is being represented on the phone or via email - to see if they may have contacted you.
Scammers use the trust of Midwestern people against us, so it is just smart to remain watchful and use a healthy dose of skepticism. It's better to be safe than sorry.
