Be careful when you answer the phone.
Attorney General Jerry Kilgore says someone is running a new phone scam and they claim to be from his office.
The caller tells you your credit card has been fraudulently billed. He then asks for your bank account number and a cancelled check to help with the investigation.
This is a scam.
If you receive a call from a Mr. Hammill or a company known as Teleguard, you're asked to call the Attorney General's office at 800-451-1525.
