It happens easily enough. You check your email to find an unexpected notice preapproval or notice of a new card. Perhaps your phone rings and it’s someone claiming to be with a local utility, threatening to discontinue service if you don’t pay. Most of the time we delete the email or simply hang up. But what if we don’t?
