If you receive a call claiming to lower your bills by 50%, hang-up and never answer these calls again. These spammers would claim to reduce your phone, utility, and cable bills etc by 50%. They are targeting US residents. The spammer tells to be calling from Discount Zone California. All these spammers speak Punjabi language and appear to be operating from Lahore, Pakistan. They start speaking in Punjabi or Urdu as soon as you pick-up the phone. They would name themselves as someone from Punjab, India. This is a tactic to build trust.
CDS Bureau recommends:
- Hang up and don’t talk to them
