If you were on the receiving end of a scam call this holiday, you’re not alone.
According to a report by First Orion, scam calls are up 129 percent since last year.
In fact, 62 percent of the 1,000 consumers surveyed for the report said they had received a scam call within the last seven days.
The survey found that holiday scams with the best chance for success asked the caller for a donation to a fake charity.
To report phone scams, you can also contact the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-FTC-HELP or ftc.gov/complaint.
