LUDINGTON, Mich. —  The Ludington Police Department says beware of rip-off artists this holiday season.

Someone called a listener of WMOM radio in Ludington on Wednesday, claiming to be a representative of the station, according to police. The caller supposedly told the victim they had won a cruise, and all they needed to do was answer three trivia questions. Police say the victim answered the questions correctly, and was then given a web link where they were to enter their phone number.

When the victim clicked on the website, it asked them for their credit-card number, in order to pay a $59 fee to win the “free” cruise.  But Ludington Police say WMOM management assured police the station had nothing to do with it.

Police ask anyone who receives a similar phone call to just hang up. And don’t provide personal information “under any circumstances”.
