The MasterCard robocall scam is circulating in South Dakota again. South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says the automated phone message prompts the consumer to press the number one to unlock the card. Once the number one is pressed, the consumer is prompted to enter their card number.
The number showing up on the caller ID is 832-328-3283, which is an insurance business in Houston, Texas. The owner of that business has been inundated with calls from South Dakota, but that number is being spoofed by the scammers.
Jackley says consumers should not give out any personal information and should hang up without pressing any numbers.
If you believe you are a victim of this scam contact the South Dakota Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-300-1986 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyone who has given out personal financial information should contact their financial institution immediately.
