BRISTOL, Va. -

Con artists are once again posing as representatives of the National Do Not Call Registry in order to steal your personal banking information.

Here is how it works. The scammer calls and asks you to register your number. Some ask for personal information, some even ask for money up front.

The Better Business Bureau reminds everyone to never give out personal information over the phone.  

The real Do Not Call Registry is free.
