Wisconsin BBB alerting residents about robocalls from foreign telemarketers

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's Better Business Bureau has issued an alert about the robocalls you might be getting from foreign telemarketers.

The calls themselves are nothing new -- but what is new is that you might see a number with your local area code or exchange.

The BBB says the callers might be confirming your phone number, so they can sell it to other foreign telemarketers -- or they could offer you a credit card deal, and hope you'll give them personal information they can use to steal your identity.

In either case, the BBB urges you to hang up -- don't say anything -- and don't press the numbers they ask you to press.

Business robocalls are illegal in Wisconsin, and we do hear about foreign telemarketers getting caught every once in a while.
