The Attorney General of Texas is sending a warning. A suspicious vacation sweepstakes could end up scamming you out of $400. The callers target Hispanics who speak Spanish.
Here's how the scam works. A bogus agent calls you on your cell phone and tells you, you've won a travel package to places like Disney World or Las Vegas. Then the caller asks for your credit card number to pay for a processing fee. Attorney General Greg Abbott says you should never give your credit card number to anyone who calls unexpectedly. He says the best thing to do is hang up.
If you are getting calls similar to this one, you're encouraged to report them at 1-800-252-8011.
