A steep discount on a monthly cable bill sound great, but it could be the set up for a scam. Con artists are impersonating cable companies and taking advantage of eagerness to save.
How the Scam Works: You get a call, and it’s someone claiming to be a representative from your cable provider’s loyal rewards program. The caller offers you a significant discount on your monthly cable and/or service. For $80 per month, you can get phone, broadband Internet, and the premium cable channels. This package would typically run subscribers well over $100/month.
