Credit Card, Identity Scam via Telephone

June 25, 2010
There has been a recent phone scam in which the caller attempted to solicit a credit card number for charity and used the name of Rabbi Weiss from B’nai Jeshrun Synagogue (located in Pepper Pike).  Residents are reminded to never give this information out when there is any question at all as to the identity of the caller.  When in doubt, get a return phone number and then confirm the information by calling the place the caller is allegedly representing.  Please report these solicitations to your local police department.
