If you get a robo-call that claims all USSA credit cards are frozen, it's a scam.
The Better Business Bureau reports that people in our area are getting those called from an automated voice that asks you to verify credit card information by pressing "1" to proceed. The caller then ask for your full credit card number, expiration date, security code, as well as a billing phone number and four-digit PIN.
Some people in KELOLAND are also reporting robo-call scams claiming to be from Mastercard.
Never give out your credit card, financial information or personal information over the phone, especially to someone you do not know.
- If you have concerns about your credit card account call the company using the phone number on your credit card.
- If you get one of these calls, don’t provide any personal information, simply hang up.
- If you’ve inadvertently provided your credit card information to a scammer, report it to the police department and your credit card company.
