1-411-200 Telephone Calls or SMS Text Messages From Scammers

Be aware of calls and SMS text messages from telephone numbers that start with 1(411)200 and then a 3 digit number after. Recipients who receive calls or SMS claiming that they have been selected to receive a donation, have won a lottery, a refund applied to their accounts that require verification, to click on a link to secure their Facebook accounts, or they need to do some other action that requires them to send money or information, should not respond to the messages and should terminate the calls.
