CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Leave it to a scammer to call at all hours of the day or night and even during a seminar.

Josh Stein, North Carolina Attorney General, answered a scam call Monday afternoon while giving a speech in Charlotte. He tweeted the following message:

“When a scammer called an audience member at my speech in Charlotte today, I answered the phone and told them they were breaking the law. If you think you might be being scammed, hang up the phone and call my office at 1-877-5-NO-SCAM.”

Stein said last year their office helped to recover more than $2.5 million lost to scammers.
