Foreign robocalls? Don’t answer or call back: Scam Watch

Local News

(WSYR-TV) — The robocalls keep ringing — some even in Mandarin.

If you’re getting these calls DO NOT answer and DO NOT call back.

If you press a button it transfers you to someone who says a document with your name on it is connected to a criminal case. They’ll then ask you to send money to take care of the “issue.”

It’s recommended to block the number and delete the message.
