We have received reports of both members and non-members being contacted in an apparent phone scam / phishing scheme attempting to collect personal information. The caller offers either a $500 Costco Travel credit or Cash Card as a reward for completing a survey or a reduced price travel package in exchange for providing some personal information. The fraudsters may be using software to show a local phone number on caller ID but hide the real phone number the calls are originating from.
Please know that these are fraudulent calls attempting to obtain personal information. These are in no way affiliated with Costco or Costco Travel. If you believe you have provided these callers your personal information, we recommend that you take appropriate steps such as notifying the consumer credit reporting agencies, signing up with a credit monitoring service, reporting it to the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) or possibly the police if you believe your identity has been stolen.
