The ARRL has received a report of a “phishing” attempt to illegally obtain credit card information from a member. The caller told the member that they needed $75 to “get his QST” and asked the member to provide their credit card number over the phone to complete the transaction.
While this is the only report we have at this time, attempts like these are becoming more and more frequent. Members should understand that ARRL would never contact you and ask for credit card information over the phone.
If you receive a phone call that is suspicious, you can contact ARRL at 1-888-277-5289 to report it.
