East Texans warn of scam

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KLTV) - Do not give your credit card number to anyone who calls and asks for it. That mistake was made by several victims of a scam that's showing up in east Texas.

AT&T is being represented in a very bad way.

Close to a dozen Nacogdoches County residents thought they were talking to phone company representatives, but in fact they were listening to con artists.

Callers who took the bait are discovering increased charges on their credit card bills. The accounts are billed for various amounts of money, some as much as $800.
