EPISODE 34 ~ TOP TIP: Pay By Phone: Why You Should Only Pay Over The Phone If You Initiated The Call

The other night I picked up the phone and it was my husband’s college calling to ask for money.  We are big believers in education, so I had the patience to listen and I was sympathetic to the idea of donating.  BUT, as I went to get my credit card, I suddenly realized I was about to break one of my own rules!  Never buy anything or donate money over the phone unless YOU initiated the call!  After all, it could be a scammer on the line trying to get your financial info.  For that matter, don’t let the caller give you a number to call back and confirm.  Instead, hang up, research the company or cause’s phone number yourself and call or mail in a donation when it’s convenient for you.
