Another scam to warn you about, this one about people claiming to be debt collectors.

The caller demands your bank account information and cell phone number.

Attorney general Steve Six reminds you that under the fair debt collection practices act... a debt collector can't call you before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m.

They also can't be harassing or abusive, use deceptive or misleading methods, or refuse to disclose their identity.

They also must contact you in writing within five days of the initial contact.

Don't give out your personal information over the phone, and if in doubt, contact the Consumer Protection Division at 800-432-2310 or visit them at www.ksag.org.
