Phone Scams Using Prepaid Cell Phones Hit The Yakima Valley
YAKIMA, Wash.- Phone scams continue to surface all over the Yakima Valley and the Better Business Bureau says prepaid cell phones are playing a part in them.
Experts at Communications Plus in Yakima told us almost anyone can buy a prepaid cell phone for under 50 dollars. They're appealing to scammers because the numbers are untraceable so the scammer can toss the phone and never get tracked down.
A reminder, just because its a local number doesn't mean the phone call is ligit. If you get a suspicious call, hang up and report it.
