According to the department’s Facebook page, a caller is targeting landlines and stating they are with apple support. They believe the scammer is targeting landlines rather than cell phones based on accessibility to block numbers.

The department states potential victims should never give out personal and/or financial information to someone on the phone. You will need to contact your landline service provider to get the number blocked.

They also say if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is.
