Police Warn of New Telephone Scam
Police want to warn you of a new scam. Gate City Chief Kim Birchfield says scammers claiming to be from the fraud department of your credit card company will call you looking for your three digit pin. The calls seem legitimate because they already know your name, credit card number and address. They’ll tell you about a fraudulent charge on your Visa or Mastercard and say they want to verify that you are actually in possession of your card by asking for the three-digit security pin on the back of your card. Police say never provide a caller with any of your information. If you want to verify the legitimacy of the call, hang up and call your credit card company directly with the telephone number on the back of your credit card or statement. If you suspect you’ve been scammed, call police right away.
