Central Saanich man warns of UPS Scam alert

A CFAX listener is warning others about a scam -- luckily Leon Bateman of Central Saanich didn't fall for it.

He says he got a call at 6:15 am this morning from a man with a heavy accent claiming to be "Tom Jones" with UPS:

The caller claimed to have a delivery and wanted to confirm credit card information, and find out when Bateman would be home.

Bateman suspects the caller was more interested in when he wouldn't be home -- possibly to target the home for a robbery.

He adds he wasn't expecting any delivery -- and notes the call originated in Jamaica.

He is worried that the elderly and others susceptible to scams might divulge their credit card information - which you should never do over the phone.
