I get phone calls all the time from strange area codes and I've learned to disregard them because they're usually scam calls.

Sometimes, though, I'll get them from the 502 area code and that's Louisville, where friends of mine live.

I've picked up one of those calls just once because it ends up being some nonsense about how I've won money or a cruise or something.

It's pretty self-explanatory and I've NEVER given out any card number to someone who calls ME and ends up asking for it.

A word to the wise is sufficient. So be wise and this should suffice.
