Beware of Phone Scams!

Beware of Phone Scams!

  • Filer Mutual
  • Jul 10th, 2017

Every year, thousands of people lose money to telephone scams — from a few dollars to their life savings. Scammers will say anything to cheat people out of money. Some seem very friendly — calling you by your first name, making small talk, and asking about your family. They may claim to work for a company you trust, or they may send mail or place ads to convince you to call them. If you get a call from someone you don’t know who is trying to sell you something you hadn’t planned to buy, say "No thanks." And, if they pressure you about giving up personal information — like your credit card or S...

A new area code (986) will be added to the same geographic area served by 208. This does not require customers to change their existing area code.
