Scam Resurfaces in Sioux Falls
Another scam has resurfaced in Sioux Falls, and as with many others, Officer Sam Clemens says it involves credit cards and the telephone.
Clemens says the automatic calls ask people for their credit card numbers to “reactivate” a card, but it’s a scam.
Clemens says one person has reported losing money, although he didn’t know how much, and he says credit card companies have no need to make such automated calls, as they already have that information.
Clemens says if you get such a call, the best thing to do is to just hang up.
He says you don’t need to call police–just don’t give the caller your credit card information.
