Fraudsters Are Spoofing Dirigo’s Phone Number to Make it Appear a Call is Coming From Us.

Criminals are getting better at spoofing everything from websites to phone calls. Even if caller ID shows that it’s us calling, it could be a crook.

Recently we noticed that fraudsters are spoofing Dirigo’s phone number to make it appear a call is coming from us. They have the first 8 digits of your debit card number and ask you for the rest. They are doing this so that they can commit fraud. Representatives of Dirigo will never ask you for your card number when calling to verify transactions. If you get a call like this, please hang up and call us directly at (207)784-5435.

This goes for other companies and government agencies as well. If they are asking for personal information, hang up and call the organization directly. You can usually find this information on their website or on a statement.
