CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is encouraging West Virginians to be careful when they get unsolicited credit card offers via email this holiday season.

Morrisey says consumers may see an increase in unsolicited phone calls or emails offering new credit cards or offering to increase their credit line. He says it’s important to check if they are valid before signing up.

Morrisey suggests researching the company making the offer, call the company directly and don’t click on any emails about a problem with a credit card.

Those who think they’ve been the victim of a fraudulent offer can contact the state Consumer Protection Division at (800) 368-8808 or visit www.ago.wv.gov .
