Editorial comments: Credit card scams

The following are comments to an editorial from FOX6 WBRC-TV General Manager Lou Kirchen, first aired on Thursday, Feb. 14:

Edith Roebuck

That was some great advice she gave on TV. Anybody calls you and they want you social security number and they want to know everything about you, well you need to keep your mouth shut and just listen to them and say well I'm not interested.

Richard Oak Grove

I'm glad to hear that credit card lowering your rate is a scam. I've been trying for a year and a half to get my name off their list. And they told me one time when I got my credit card that I gave them permission to call me.

Mike Leeds

It's a sad day when we have to continually remind people not to do things such as drive when there's ice on the road or give your information to people over the phone that you don't know. When will people start growing up and doing things that their supposed to do without having to be told?

Merle Morris

Well I have found out even though I called the national line that's supposed to be freezing all that. Like you said, they still come through and a lot of times when I don't answer it, I'll call 'em back. Then they'll give you a prompt, either 1 to talk to 'em or whatever or 2 to be deleted. Now, does that really work? I don't know but that's what I do.
