SD Attorney General Warns of Cell Phone Scam

Cell Phone Keypad

 

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says cell phone users should beware of a scam using automated calls that imply people’s debit cards have been compromised.

Jackley says the automated phone message prompts the cell phone user to press a number to unlock the card. Once the number is pressed, the cell phone user is connected to a live person who requests the person’s debit card number, current address and confirmation of recent transactions.

The attorney general says the scam artist then asks for a PIN number to reset the card.

Jackley says people should not give out any personal information and should hang up without pressing any numbers on their cell phones.
