Someone is Using KATS to Try and Scam You -Don’t Fall For it!
Someone is using 94.5 KATS as part of some scheme to try and trick you into doing something. Don't fall for it!
Earlier this morning I received an email from a co-worker that she got from a local dental office asking if the radio station was doing a blood drive. I told her that was news to me. Turns out, somebody was using our name to deceive them.
We have, in the past, done a number of blood drives with our friends at the American Red Cross here in Yakima but, with COVID-19 and all, I'm not even so sure how they are taking donations of the gift of life these days.
Apparently, the Business Manager at this particular dental office got a call about a blood drive being put on by the radio stations. The person wanted to send an audio file (big time flashing red light!) and would not give their email address or phone number.
What it's all about, I'm not sure, but it is definitely not us!
I don't know about you but it seems like there has been a huge surge in the number of scams since the pandemic started. I, personally, had a false claim made under my name for benefits through the Washington State Department of Labor and Industry as well as having my entire bank account compromised and all of my funds diverted to another account!
Be vigilant in these times! there seems to be no bottom to how low some people will sink to fool you!
Rock on! \m/ \m/
