Bank Card Phone Scam

Bank Card Phone Scam

The Ross County Sheriff's Office has been getting numerous reports of a phone scam. Authorities say the calls are from a person alleging to be calling on behalf of a bank, indicating that the call recipient's bank or credit card has been blocked due to possibly identity theft.

The caller then prompts the call recipients to enter his/her card number so the card can be reinstated, which authorities say you should not do; instead, simply hang up.
