Got a Facebook message today from KATS listener Kristi Smith, telling us about a phone call she received.

Well I triple-checked with the powers that be, and as I suspected, IT IS A SCAM!

We will never call you individually to ask for donations or personal information. We do that type of solicitation, get this ... over the radio! If you do get one of these calls, please ignore it. If you ever do get a legitimate call from KATS-FM, it is either to give you a prize, or to inform you that a prize you have already won is available for pick-up.

Thank you for reaching out, and if you are ever in doubt please reach out to us like Kristi did -- or check out  the FTC's scam page.
