A 30-year-old Bremerton woman reported Aug. 24 to police that she had been receiving at least 15 calls a day from a company asking for her debit and credit card information after she had signed up for online coupons.
The woman, who resides on the 1700 block of Sixth Street said a few days before, she signed up for online grocery coupons that were to be sent to her email. In the last few days, she was receiving more than 10 calls a day from “Grocery Savings” even after she asked to not be contacted. When she asked for a supervisor, the person calling would hang up, she said.
The officer advised the woman to contact the Federal Trade Commission and her phone provider to get the company’s phone number blocked.
When the officer called the phone number that the woman provided for the company, a supervisor or the legal department could not be reached even after identifying himself as law enforcement. The employee hung up the phone. The report is for information.
