    these scams are on the rise again. But did you know that they are closely monitored by this telephone scams watchdog site? it's http://www.callercenter.com. Why, almost every new scams are being reported and posted on there so everybody gets to read the information.

    This is why whenever i get suspicious calls, i make it a point to get the phone number and report it to callercenter. It may be just a few minutes of my time but i know that it does a lot of help by warning others not to accept the scammer calls and fall victims to them.
